Per Fluorinated Alkylated Substances (PFAS)

PFAS (e.g. PFOA/PFOS) are an emerging class of contaminants in Australia. Although manufacturing was phased out in 2002, the persistence of PFAS in the environment has become a significant concern in recent years as more research has become available to regulators. In 2016, Envirolab Group has commenced testing for PFAS.

Drinking Water Testing: Information for Private Use

Drinking Water should be safe to use and aesthetically pleasing. It should be clear and colourless, with no unpalatable taste or odour, and it should contain no suspended matter, harmful chemical substances or pathogenic micro-organisms. The main sources of drinking water are from mains supplied water (tap water), groundwater (bores), surface water (dams, lakes) or rainwater tanks. Any water intended for human consumption should be tested for microbial and chemical quality.

Indoor Air Quality Testing Results in Australia

Many recent air quality testing results have shown a connection between poor air quality and the development of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). Australian researchers concluded that poor indoor air quality made COPD worse and, in some cases, led to death. A study published in the British Medical Journal compared residents living in the cities of Hobart and Launceston. Researchers found that if they reduced the burning of wood and other organic material the number of COPD deaths were reduced.
