Wastewater Analysis
Analysis of Polar Organics in wastewater provides the non routine element to the ACS register of Testing methods. There are unique challenges to analysis of water soluble analytes and ACS has proven experience in the analysis of:

  • Glycols
  • Alcohols
  • Acrylates
  • Adipates
  • Organic acids
  • Alphatic and Aromatic Amines
  • Aldehydes and Ketones
  • EDTA and NTA
  • Mercaptans
  • Sulphur compounds
  • Alkyl Phenol Carboxylates
  • Quaternary ammonium Compounds

    Herbicide and Pesticide Analysis in Drinking Water
    ACS also specialize in analysis of the "new" generation of herbicides and pesticides in drinking water. Most of these so called new generation pesticides are much more polar and ionic in nature than the traditional OC and OP pesticides and are suited to analysis by HPLC and LCMS techniques. These include;

  • Carbamates
  • Triazines
  • Sulphonyl ureas
  • Glyphosate and AMPA
  • Glufosinate
  • Amitrole
  • Imazepyr
  • Imazapic
  • Paraquat and Diquat
  • Amitrole
  • Phosphorous acid


    Product Formulation and Method Validation
    ACS has over 100 technical publications submitted to the APVMA on behalf of its clients in areas of:

    1. Product Analysis for Active concentration and Impurities to the most recent APVMA guidelines.
    2. Method validation of Agricultural formulation including stability Trials for APVMA registration.

    Compounds recently tested include, Glyphosate, N-nitrosoglyphosate, Diuron, Tetrachloroazobenzene, Imazapyr, Clorpyralid and Ethephon.

    To get your Project done on time and On budget send it straight to ACS Agriservices. We are the benchmark in timely delivery and quality results. You will not be disappointed!

    Pesticides and Herbicides in Plant, Grape, Vegetation and Crops
    ACS also have a high level of expertise in the analysis of exotic type herbicides like glyhosate, paraquat/diquat, sulphonyl ureas (metsulfuron), triazines, phenoxy acids, imazepyr, and others in vegetation and crops such as grapes and wines where incorrect use of chemicals has affected crops and or stunted growth.

    Issues such as overspray and deliberate damage to poison trees to improve property aspects can be resolved with confidence.

    Air Tube and Indoor Air Quality Testing
    ACS have the experience and ability to perform most air analysis using NIOSH and OSHA methods. ACS covers a wide range of polar and non-polar analytes.

    We can also customize analyses to meet your individual needs.
  • TVOCs
  • Speciated VOCs
  • Aldehydes and Ketones
  • Acrylates
  • Alcohols
  • Phenols
  • Pesticides and Herbicides
  • Polar Organics
  • Mercaptans
  • Sulphur compounds
