SGS is your one-stop for quality environmental analysis including these specialty services:


  • The SGS Ultratrace Lab in Wilmington, NC, recently earned Department of Defense Environmental Laboratory Accreditation (DoD ELAP) for ultratrace organics.

  • SGS AXYS in Sidney, British Columbia, Canada, has been a world leader in ultratrace analysis of Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) and Contaminants of Emerging Concern (CECs) for more than 40 years. SGS AXYS specializes in ultratrace analysis of organic emerging contaminants, which 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.


SGS is taking the lead on PFAS expertise, including total oxidizable precursors (TOP), and our scope, accuracy, capacity, monitoring proficiency, testing and data analysis are unmatched.

In North America three laboratories back each other up and we are certified to perform the following analyses and deliver the highest quality data on time at a competitive price:
