Sample preparation of water, soil or air samples
Sample preparation in environmental analysis can be quite challenging, depending on your sample of course. Soil analysis, for example, can require substantial sample preparation before an analysis can be performed.
The three most common analysis techniques performed in the environmental workflow are chromatography, titration and (spectro)photometry.
Reference materials for result interpretation
Supelco's reference materials include over 20 000 standards, of which a large part is used for environmental analysis. These standards are minimum double-accredited to ISO/IEC 17025, ISO Guide 34 and ISO 17034.
Quality assurance support
Quality is embedded in everything Merck does. It is, and has always been, the cornerstone of the company. In environmental testing, Merck can help you to ensure quality of your testing throughout the entire process. Recently Merck has introduced a new classification of their products and different quality grades, to ensure you always get the right quality grade for your application, the M-clarity program.
