Water Types

The laboratory will handle samples prepared by techniques outside the facility.
Samples will therefore be submitted for analyses if required.

Technologies

Analytical facilities only - see below.

Analytical equipment

ICP-MS (low level elemental analysis - mainly transition elements, metalloids
and rare earths)
