AXYS has been a world leader in ultra trace analysis of Persistent Organic Pollutants and emerging organic contaminants for more than forty years. Our international reputation has been earned through resolute commitment to unparalleled data integrity and quality for private and public sectors clients.
Our expertise extends to a wide variety of fully commercialized tests for organochlorine legacy compounds like dioxins and PCBs, to analysis of emerging and pre-regulatory contaminants. Whether you need regulatory analysis of legacy pollutants such as Dioxins and PCBs, specialized analysis of emerging contaminants such as PFCs and PBDEs or method development for compounds of new concern like Pharmaceuticals and Personal Care Products (PPCPs), our analytical excellence can make a difference for you.
Many of our technologies employ serial isotope dilution through the use of carbon isotope standards to enhance our detection limits, selectivity, and reduction of interferences. AXYS’s unique experience and specialized sampling and analytical procedures may allow for much lower detection limits and maximization of data obtained from limited sample size. AXYS offers analyses in many matrices, including a wide range of biological and human matrices. Our track record and reputation for excellence – even in complex sample conditions within environmental, human, biota and food matrices consistently ensures legally defensible contaminant analysis. We also have a wealth of successful experiences with high volume and passive sampling techniques and their analysis.
Consistently first to market amongst North American commercial environmental laboratories in analysis of emerging contaminants (full congener PCBs in 1986; dioxins in 1988; polybrominated diphenyl ethers in 1995; perfluorinated chemicals in 2002), AXYS continually develops quantitative approaches for contaminants of emerging concern under full ISO 17025 compliance. AXYS holds multiple analysis and matrix accreditation with American (NELAC) and Canadian (CALA) national bodies. Our dedication to continuous leadership in quality and scientific advances means that our customers always get cutting edge methodology with unparalleled data integrity.
