Eurofins is highly specialised in the analysis of different water types and for many years has been performing an extensive range of chemical and specialist research into groundwater, waste water, surface water, percolate water, sea water, boiler water and drinking water. To do this we have the most advanced laboratory equipment at our disposal. The analytical methods used comply with national and international standards and performance characteristics are carefully recorded and continuously monitored through first, second and third line checks. 

Eurofins offers several methods for detecting possible contamination of sediment. Below is an overview of the most common water analyses.
