Environmental analysis

The environmental challenges require internationally accepted standards, in which limits and test methods are defined. Metrohm instruments and applications comply with a lot of international environmental standards.

Substances introduced into the environment are distributed among the environmental compartments water, soil (sediment), and air, as well as among the organisms living in them (biosphere). Only if we know the type and quantity of these contaminants can we protect the environment and its inhabitants.


Air is a heterogeneous mixture of finely dispersed, solid or liquid particles in a gas (air). Sampling includes both filter and continuous methods. While the first type is offline and supplies data over longer periods, powerful continuous samplers work online. They are directly coupled to one or more robust analyzers – inline of course.
