Getting the most from the results

The Bottom Line

The main purpose of this test is to reveal possible contamination within SOIL of harmful toxic metals.

More than half of these metals are known to be toxic, dangerous, carcinogenic or have unknown effects on humans. Long red bars make it imperative to investigate possible contamination routes and investigate further.

Bar lengths are shown as a percentage of the maximum allowed guideline level of the particular metal. Blue bars indicate the result is under the max allowed level -i.e. under 100%

Guidelines

Contamination Guidelines set a maximum amount of heavy metal or mineral allowed in the SOIL - expressed as mg/kg

Soil contamination Guidelines or Health investigation Levels (HILs), are available for Residential A, Residential B, Recreational use and Industry & Commerce. The guideline levels, however are different for the different intended LAND usage. See the Guidelines page for more details

Clicking on the different guideline buttons shows the same result but visualised with the different guideline upper value

Dive Deeper

There are links within your results that take you to further information. This information is being updated regularly.

All links are in blue. Metal name links take you to the substance profile on Toxno.

Additional information includes your actual result expressed as mg of the metal per kg of soil, the guideline upper value used to visualise the result, the date and lab job number and client sample details. LOD stands for "Limit of Detection"

Balance

Very toxic metals like Lead, Cadmium, Arsenic and Mercury, don't want to be even near 100% of the allowed guideline.

It is paramount to find the source of the heavy metal contamination. Don't let children play around or in suspect soils.

EAL's analytical laboratory equipment

For nearly 30 years, inductively coupled plasma–mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) has been gaining favor with laboratories around the world as the instrument of choice for performing trace metal analysis. ICP-MS continues to make inroads into laboratories that are requiring the lowest detection limits and the greatest level of productivity. The primary reasons for the growing popularity of ICP-MS can be summarized in a few points:
• Instrument detection limits are at or below the single part per trillion (ppt) level for much of the periodic table
• Analytical working range is nine orders of magnitude
• Productivity is unsurpassed by any other technique
• Isotopic analysis can be achieved readily
