Toxic Elements and its partners use innovative methods to link concentrations of inorganic contaminants in complex environmental matrices and from multi-stressor events to biological effects. Our expertise includes analyses of low-weight mammal, fish, avian, invertebrate, vegetation, and herpetofauna tissues, as well as surface and pore waters, produced waters, and sediments and soils. Capabilities include inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry, microwave digestion, ion chromatography, total mercury analysis, carbon analyses, lyophilization, cryogrinding, and passive and active pore water sampling methods for metals and dissolved organic carbon.
