Environmental regulations aimed to protect human health and the environment
The US EPA sets safety standards and methods to ensure our water, air, and soils are safe from hazardous contaminants. Many Thermo Scientific products are used by environmental laboratories to comply with these regulations.
Visit these informative pages to find helpful information such as determining which EPA method to use, discussions about the relevant technologies, and strategies for successful analysis.
