Paracel was founded in 1985 to study and develop new methodologies for the Ministry of the Environment in regards to fungal toxins in cereal grains. Over time, our focus shifted to waste water testing supporting industrial clients and then further expanded further to full range environmental test capabilities. Project support became a foundation of our facility and our broad range of analytical experience includes:

  • Site assessment and remediation (Regulation 153/04)
  • Management of Excess Soil (Reg 406/19)
  • Water quality programs (drinking water, surface water and groundwater studies)
  • Municipal/Industrial Strategy for Abatement (MISA)
  • Sewer use by-laws
  • Solid waste management (Regulation 558)
  • PCB emergency response
  • Indoor Air Quality
  • Microbial investigations (molds and fungi)
  • Forensic investigations (fire accelerants)
  • DSS surveys for asbestos, metals, PCBs
