Air & Gas Analysis Laboratory Details

InnoTech Alberta’s Air and Gas Analysis Laboratory has the capabilities to perform different types of air quality analyses including: 

  • Particulate matter collected on membrane filters or polyurethane foam plugs (PUFs) 
  • Mass of Particulate Matter captured 
  • Elemental analysis by ICP-MS 
  • Water-soluble cations by ICP-MS 
  • Major ions by ion chromatography (IC) 
  • Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) collected on adsorbent tubes by GC-MS 
  • Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) collected on PUFs by GC-MS 
  • Ambient air samples collected in sampling canisters or Tedlar bags 
  • Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) by GC-MS 
  • Reduced sulphur compounds (RSC) by GC-SCD
