Environmental Analysis
Environmental Analysis

 Water is the essence of life and we place great emphasis on the quality of water through STC extensive water quality testing services. Acquiring HOKLAS accreditation for tap water, drinking water, cooling tower water testing and more, our environmental analysis team can identify chemical, physical and microbiological parameters with reference to WHO, BP and GB standards to ensure safety compliance.

Additionally, the emission of hazardous substances into the air such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and formaldehyde have also become an increasing concern for public health. STC’s experienced chemists and state-of-the-art VOCs chambers can access and detect even trace amounts of hazardous substances in building materials, furniture, and home decorations.
