LAB UPDATES: 

    > NEW: Acrolein in Water Testing Now Available: Acrolein is mainly used as a contact herbicide to control submersed and floating weeds, as well as algae, in irrigation canals. It is used at a level of 10 ppm in irrigation and recirculating waters. 

    SRC Environmental Analytical Laboratories has developed an acrolein in water analysis method following the US EPA method 603 with modifications. The method uses a headspace technique, allowing for a detection limit of 1 ug/L (or 1 ppb). This method was assessed by the Canadian Association for Laboratory Accreditation (CALA) in April and is now in our scope of accreditation. 

    For acrolein analysis, we require 2 x 40 mL amber glass vials containing sodium thiosulfate to be filled to overflowing with no headspace. When kept at ≤6°C, the hold time is 14 days. Please contact the lab for sampling supplies.
