    Take a quick tour of InnoTech Alberta's one-stop laboratory for environmental monitoring, with Julius Pretorius...


Overview

The Environmental Analytical Services team performs analysis of environmental and industrial samples consisting of air, gas, water, soils, sediments, and solids, as well as plant and animal tissue. 

The Environmental Analytical Services team operates under the Environment sector.

InnoTech Alberta helps public and private sector clients develop comprehensive monitoring programs that are affordable, easy to manage and scaled to address localized to regional to provincial situations.

  • Organic environmental monitoring: InnoTech measures trace level of organic components in environmental and industrial samples. Organic constituents are measured in water, air, soil, biological tissues, effluents and other matrices.
  • Inorganic environmental monitoring: InnoTech uses techniques such as ion chromatography for major ions at macro or trace levels in air, aqueous or solid samples. InnoTech can also conduct colorimetric and instrumental testing for gaseous or particulate constituents.
Canadians realize that industrial by-products and waste have an impact on the environment and human health. These include air emissions, waste products in effluents, pesticides, and pharmaceuticals.

Accurate monitoring of pollutants in air, water, soil, sediment and biota helps decision-makers establish guidelines that ensure responsible development of our natural resources.
