Biological Tissue Analysis
Biological tissue analysis is used to determine the level of toxic substances in plant and animal tissues. These levels are an important element in the ecological risk assessment process and are used to help determine if contamination is present that may affect the food chain and possibly humans.
Tissue analysis requires different methodologies than the more common environmental test matrices for soil, water, and air. To meet that challenge, NWDLS has developed propriety methodologies and procedures for tissue extraction and analysis to ensure accurate, targeted measurement of identified and potential contaminants. These capabilities separate us from the typical soil/water testing labs.
North Water District Laboratory Services is proud to be one of only thirteen labs accredited in the biological tissue matrix by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. We can perform routine analysis on fish, amphibians, birds, mammals, and plants to test for environmental contaminants.
For over 40 years, North Water District Laboratory Services has been a leader in the environmental analysis industry and are continuing to set the standard with our biological tissue analysis. Call today to see how we can help you.
