PCBs and Chlorinated Pesticides Water Test
Recommended by SimpleLab™ for targeted testing for polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and chlorinated pesticides in drinking water. PCBs are synthetic compounds that were widely used up until the 1960's in electrical equipment such, as capacitors and transformers–as well as in hydraulic fluids, lubricants, plasticizers, and pesticides. Due to their environmental toxicity, and classification as persistent organic pollutants, PCB production was banned in the US in 1978. They have been shown to be human endocrine disruptors. Along with an array of PCBs, the testing package also includes analysis of other persistent organochlorinated pesticides like DDT, aldrin, and lindane.
This Tap Score water test package provides all required materials to properly collect and submit a sample for certified laboratory testing. Reported results will include detailed, quantified analysis of PCBs and organochlorine pesticides by EPA method 608.
Testing includes: 4,4 DDD, 4,4 DDE, 4,4 DDT, Aldrin, Alpha BHC, Beta BHC, Chlordane, Dieldrin, Endosulfan I, Endosulfan II, Endosulfan Sulfate, Endrin, Endrin Aldehyde, Endrin Ketone, Gamma Chlordane, Heptachlor, Heptachlor epoxide, Lindane, Methoxychlor, Toxaphene, delta-BHC, PCB 1016, PCB 1221, PCB 1232, PCB 1242, PCB 1248, PCB 1254, PCB 1260.
Report analysis includes: Health-risk assessment, potential plumbing and aesthetic issues (taste, odor, appearance), comparison to any regulatory limits and/or public health guidelines, and unbiased treatment recommendations.

By default, this broad-based chemical and biological water quality screening package is designed to provide you with general information about your water for personal use. Each report includes analysis for specific numerical concentration levels of each contaminant and details about the potential sources and health effects associated with each parameter. We are not medical doctors and SimpleLab does not provide medical advice. For medical concerns always consult your doctor. As an informational water quality test, this package is not meant for state or federal compliance water testing. If you or your organization requires compliance with State or Federal Law, or compliance with a particular regulatory requirement then you must contact our support team and we will use the appropriate certified laboratory facilities to ensure your compliance testing requirements are met.
