Paracel's organic department analyses a wide range of organics in all forms of matrices, including but not limited to soil, sediment, water, oil and air media. Our major analyses include hydrocarbons, both purgeable and extractable, VOCs, PAHs, and PCBs. Our modern instrumentation includes GC-MS, GC-FID and GC-ECD, as well as purge and trap. Typical projects include Phase II site assessments, clean ups and emergency spill response, on-going monitoring, solid waste management, and industrial effluent analysis.

Our most common analyses are as follows:

  • Purgeables – VOCs, BTEX, PHC F1, MOE TPH (g)
  • Semi-VOCs – PHCs F2-F4, ABN, PAH, PCB, OC Pesticide, O&G
