Proficiency Testing for water and environmental laboratories. There are 10 programmes available under the Water and Environmental scheme offering:

  • Drinking Water Chemistry - for analysis of inorganics, metals and organics.
  • Drinking Water Microbiology - for analysis of indicator organisms e.g. total coliforms, enterococci, organism ID.
  • Drinking Water Parasitology - Cryptosporidium and Giardia supplied as phosphate buffered saline suspensions.
  • Drinking Water Chemical Contamination Emergency - aimed at testing the capabilities of a laboratory to analyse a completely unknown chemically contaminated drinking water sample on an emergency short-term rapid screening basis by identifying the toxic chemical contaminant(s) in a real drinking water sample. Also, a sample for analysis of gross alpha and gross beta radioactivity only is supplied.
  • Drinking Water Chemistry Taste & Odour Chemical Identification - aimed at testing the capabilities of a laboratory to analyse a chemically contaminated drinking water sample for completely unknown compound(s) that may produce a taste or odour.
  • Environmental Surface Water Chemistry - for analysis of inorganics and metals in clean river, reservoir or lake.
  • Environmental Legionella - Analysis of Legionella spp in water.
  • Environmental Waste Water Chemistry - for analysis of inorganics, metals and organics in water.
  • Environmental Soil Chemistry - Analysis of metals in soil.
  • Environmental High Salinity Water Chemistry - full volume simulated seawater samples made using NaCl with salinity of 3.5% for analysis of inorganics and metals.
