Within its Watford laboratory complex, i2 has created an unique Environmental Forensics facility specialising in the analysis of trace levels of organic pollutants in a huge variety of environmental and other matrices.
From small, volatile molecules such as CFCs in insulating foams to large complex compounds such as modern pharmaceuticals in food products, using the most advanced analytical technologies, this new facility is equipped to test for an almost infinite range of chemical pollutants.
The instrumental laboratories house the latest generations of chromatographic analytical instruments, including HPLC, LCMS, LCMS/MS, GC, GCMS & GCMS/MS.
In addition to the instrumental laboratories, the facility contains a dedicated R&D laboratory and separate sample preparation and extraction laboratories.
With two European based laboratories, and with import licenses for control materials and samples, i2 are able to accept samples, quickly and conveniently, from anywhere in the world.
i2 pioneered sample transportation with the Enviro Sample Kit (ESK) and we have taken this pioneering spirit further and developed our analytical methodologies to use the lowest sample volumes possible. This not only reduces costs for shipping but also reduces the carbon footprint associated with transportation of samples.
Recent projects have seen us working across the UK, Europe, the Middle East, South America, Asia and South Africa.
Having assisted with complex decontamination issues, site demolition and site remediation work in the past for major agrichemical, pharmaceutical and petrochemical companies, not to mention international consultants , we have the expertise to advise clients on the best possible analytical practices.
We are able to discuss testing requirements, sample sizes, holding times etc. and more often than not can save our clients money by consolidating testing and focussing in on critical analysis and reducing non-essential work. Best of all, the service is free!
