POPs and CECs

SGS AXYS in Sidney, BC specializes in the measurement of low, ultratrace levels of known or suspected persistent organic pollutants (POPs) and Contaminants of Emerging Concern (CECs) in environmental, biota and product samples. We offer state-of-the-art mass spectrometric analysis for more than a thousand compounds of interest. Our isotope dilution techniques and quality programs ensure data of industry-leading quality, detection limits and defensibility. Our expertise ranges from promulgated method tests including 1613B and 1668 for organochlorine legacy compounds like dioxins, PCBs and pesticides to analysis of emerging and pre-regulatory contaminants like PFAS, and pharmaceutical and personal care products in environmental, human, biota and food matrices. Our capabilities include custom method development and validation for new compounds of interest.  We are accredited under ISO-17025, NELAP an DoD ELAP for many of our tests.).


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 American 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:

  • The SGS AXYS laboratory in British Columbia, Canada analyzes PFAS compounds by isotope dilution LC-MS/MS in almost any matrix, and is in the forefront of method development and specialty analysis pertaining to these compounds
  • The Orlando, FL laboratory currently analyzes various PFAS in drinking water, ground water, and soil/sediments by LC/MS/MS.
  • The Wilmington, NC laboratory analyzes PFAS in drinking water and ground water by LC/MS/MS.

Our extensive technical expertise is available for PFAS in drinking water, ground water, soils, sediments, tissue, serum and products, applicable in over 30 additional states.
