Analytes are the subject of investigation and have been chosen to represent substances or groups of substances that describe either a basic physiological state or else toxic or carcinogenic conditions.
The specimens are analysed as outlined in the Standard Operating Procedures.
|Metals||Eighty percent of all elements on earth are metals|
|Nonmetals||Only eighteen elements in the periodic table|
|Organometallic compounds||Organic substances with at least one metall atom|
|Chlorohydrocarbons||Group of organic compounds with at least one covalently bonded chlorine atom|
|Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons||Group of organic compounds with at least three condensed six-membered rings|
|Phthalates||General-purpose plasticizers for PVC and other polymers|
|Bisphenol A||Commercially important precursor of polymers like polycarbonates and epoxy resins|
|Triclosan||Chlorinated aromatic biocide|
|Polycyclic musks||Class of synthetic fragrances|
|Alkylphenol compounds||Class of non-ionic surfactants and their degradation products|
|Hexabromocyclododecane||Brominated flame retardant in polystyrene foams and other plastics|
|Supplementary parameters||Additional information for the interpretation of contamination data|
