CARO is pleased to announce market leading detection limits for metals in water and soil. In late 2010, after months of evaluating available technologies, we purchased one of the newest Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometers (ICP-MS) on the market. The Agilent 7700x ICP-MS enables us to analyze water, solid and tissue samples at some of the lowest reportable detection limits in the industry.
This leads the market in supporting environmental impact assessment work, including the BCMOE “Water and Air Resource Protection Guidelines for Mine Proponents and Operators” currently under development. As an example, we are able to routinely report arsenic in water at 2 parts per trillion (ppt). This is 250 times lower than typical industry capabilities.
Why is this important? At pristine sites, instead of monitoring “< DL” data, consultants can now assess environment trends at lower levels and with much more certainty than ever before.
We look forward bringing this high-level technical expertise to our clients. This initiative further supports CARO’s commitment to next-generation capabilities and our vision of industry technical leadership. Please contact us to discuss your low- level metals needs. We are always more than happy to assist you.
