Arsenic As
Arsenic is naturally-occurring throughout the environment and also widely used as a preservative for treated wood and as a pesticide in fields where we grow our food. Because of its chemical nature, it is frequently bioavailable and easily absorbed. Accurate and precise measurements of this classified human carcinogen are critical for managing our environment and protecting human health and safety. At Brooks Applied Labs, we have both the innovation and the expertise to provide you with ultra-low arsenic and arsenic speciation for virtually any matrix type. Please contact us to find out which arsenic test is the appropriate method choice for your samples.
