Dioxins / PCB
Exact Scientific understands that outsourcing, with its focus on specialization, alliances and innovation, has become one of the most widely used management tools for building and sustaining competitive advantages. We offer a broad range of outsourcing support services to a variety of clients. This allows for you as the client to focus on your product and we take care of all your testing needs. This saves you time (we take care of packaging the product and send it off) and money (bulk shipments and if we can get a discount for being a lab we pass this savings on to you).
Dioxins/PCBs are outsourced to ALS Environmental in Houston, Texas. ALS Environmental offers expertise in high resolutions analyses for dioxin and dioxin-like compounds, polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) congeners, and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PDBEs). They can test dioxin analytes by different methods, but typically EPA Method 1613 is used. The analysis will give you results for the 17 toxic dioxins and furans and provides a Total Toxicity Equivalence Quantity (TEQ) for each sample. The standard turnaround time (TAT) is three weeks upon notice of sample arrival at the laboratory.
