Analytical Balance is pleased to offer fully certified volatile organics testing. Volatile organics can be very dangerous to human health and can travel for miles in underground and surface waters. Sources of these chemicals can include illegal dumping, gas stations, improperly monitored junkyards, landfills, industry, agriculture, and even drinking water disinfection. We recommend testing any source periodically and particularly if you are adjacent to any of these potential sources. Below are certain batteries (groups) of volatiles. Click here to see which compounds are in these batteries. Keep in mind that batteries can be customized for your needs.

Test Battery
EPA 524.2 (Drinking Water)
EPA 624 (Waste Water, includes State DMR list)
EPA 8260B (our most complete volatiles list)*
THM (Trihalomethanes, a disinfection by-product)
PCE (Perchloroethylene of Tetrachloroethyene)
MtBE (Methyl-t-butyl ether)
MtBE/BTEX (Methyl-t-butyl ether/Benzene, Toluene, Ethylbenzene, Xylenes)

Note: Massachusetts DEP does not certify Method 8260.

Other organic testing is available through Analytical Balance. Based on demand, the Laboratory normally sub-contracts these tests to our partner laboratories. We require all of our sub-contract laboratories to maintain the same high standards as Analytical Balance. Discounted pricing may be available for larger projects.
