Dioxin and Furan Testing

The PDC Labs facility in Peoria, IL, is at the forefront of dioxin testing in Illinois, having served the evolving global dioxin testing market for many years. Dioxins are harmful organic substances that result from various chemical reactions.

The laboratory offers an extensive range of dioxin testing capabilities including, but not limited to the following:

  • Dioxin analysis in the conventional environmental matrices: air, water, & soil
  • European Union compliant Dioxin testing in human food and animal feed
  • Analysis of emerging dioxin-like compounds in all matrices
    • PCB Congeners by HRGCMS
    • PBDE Brominated Flame Retardants by HRGCMS

Reasons for Dioxin Testing in Illinois

Dioxin testing in Illinois is needed because there are a number of human activities that produce these harmful substances in the environment. The simple task of backyard burning of dried leaves can produce significant amounts of these substances in the air. Other sources of dioxin include the use of diesel heavy-duty trucks, industrial wood combustion, the use of diesel off-road equipment, automobiles using leaded gasoline, and trash incineration.

In addition, kilns that combust hazardous waste, petroleum refining, cigarette smoking, industrial furnaces, and crematoria all add to the levels of dioxins in the atmosphere. Dioxin testing in Illinois checks for the current air conditions and allows experts to make assessments and appropriate recommendations to concerned entities regarding the mitigation of these harmful substances.
