Testing water for its suitability for drinking is one of the
areas Leeder Analytical specialise in. Whether it is for human consumption or for animal use we offer an extensive range of
water tests. We service a diverse range of industries, including water boards, bottled mineral water and still water industries,
to sports and energy drink manufacturers. We offer an extensive
range of analytical testing that covers both organic and inorganic compounds; isotope analysis and microbiological analysis. To
ensure the highest quality we take part in a range of local and international proficiency studies including Proficiency Testing Australia and Global Proficiency New Zealand.
Drinking water (potable)
Drinking water covers a wide range of potential sources including domestic mains water, bore and tank water, groundwater, rainwater, surface water and bottled water. Analytical methods available include APHA, Australian standards, ISO and USEPA. Analysis performed by Leeder Analytical includes basic chemistry tests such as pH, colour, odour, TDS/TSS and a wide range of organic compounds including volatile organic compounds to pesticides. If the water does not taste quite
right or consumers are feeling unwell from the water we can help identify the potential issue of concern.
Process and Wastewater covers the testing of raw sewerage, leachates, effluents, industry process water and other waste water. Testing of waste water may be required for recycling or to minimise risk to the environment and public health.
Analytical Methods followed include APHA, USEPA and Australian standards.
Leeder Analytical offer a wide range of routine and non-routine testing.
