Innovative Result Visualisation as an Australian First

Water contamination Guidelines are available for Drinking Water, Irrigation Water and water used for Livestock. The guideline levels, however are different for the different intended water uses. Clicking on the different guideline buttons in your results, shows the same result but visualised with the different guideline upper values. Try it out here

    Toxtest and Environmental Analysis Laboratory (EAL) at Southern Cross University in Lismore, NSW, Australia, collaborate to provide WATER testing of 32 heavy metals and minerals using ultra-high-sensitive equipment and innovative dynamic result presentation. Our sister site, Toxno, provides extensive exposure route and health effects information on all metals.


  • Water Analysis: Most importantly we are presenting the results using creative visualisation techniques that enable you to get the most from the results.

    Our water analysis is also the natural flow on test if you got elevated toxic metal results in our Human Hair Test and water was suspected as a contamination source.

    Toxtest and EAL offer very competitive pricing on a wide range of testing for home, recreational, civil commercial, industrial and agricultural applications. Water analysis includes testing of standard water, wastewater, extracts and effluent analysis.

    Standard waters can include: drinking water, bore water, dam water, spring and creek water, ground water, subterranean water and tank water for physical, chemical and bacteriological parameters.

    "The Drinking Water Guidelines are intended to meet the needs of consumers and apply at the point of use, for example at the tap. They are applicable to any water intended for drinking, irrespective of its source (municipal supplies, rainwater tanks, bores, or point-of-use treatment devices) or where that water is to be used (in homes, restaurants etc.)"
    An Introduction to the Australian and New Zealand Guidelines for Fresh and Marine Water Quality

    "Visualization is critical to data analysis. While tables are necessary to record the data, it is usually very difficult to distinguish pattern in tables of numbers, particularly for large data sets. Graphs, however, allow the reader to see complex data sets simply and concisely. Plots can reveal hidden structure in the data, and outlying or unusual results, and they enable preconceived ideas to be challenged."

  Stay Informed

Tests are being updated regularly to include new exposures and their toxic substances. And NEW tests are introduced. You can unsubscribe at any time.

We test for the following Heavy Metals and Minerals across all our tests - Hair, Water, Soil, Dust & Compost

Aluminium Antimony Arsenic Barium Beryllium Bismuth Cadmium Cobalt Chromium Lead Manganese Mercury Nickel Silver Strontium Thorium Thallium Uranium Calcium Boron Copper Iron Lithium Magnesium Molybdenum Phosphorus Potassium Selenium Sodium Sulphur Vanadium Zinc
RED: Toxic Heavy Metal - linked to extensive exposure & health details

YELLOW: Potentially Toxic
GREEN: Mineral/Nutrient

Example Hair Results


Toxno, Toxtest and Environmental Analysis Laboratory (EAL) at Southern Cross University in Lismore, NSW, Australia, collaborate to provide innovation and an Australian first in hair, water, soil/compost or dust testing of 32 heavy metals and minerals. Our Hair or Water analysis is AU$98. Order forms can be downloaded below.

All results are published (de-identified) online and updated regularly as new health or exposure route information becomes available for each metal/mineral. All results are dynamic, contain instructions, have full support and contain clickable links to current health and exposure information for each metal/mineral.

Hair results are live and use innovative moving graphical visualisations, while our water and soil analyses concurrently visualise your results based on human, animal and agricultural guidelines - a true Australian innovation. See a large list of example Hair, Water, Soil and Dust results.

Download test order forms here. Each test covers MERCURY, CADMIUM, LEAD, ARSENIC plus other Heavy Metals, Metalloids and Minerals (32 in total).
