Monitoring metal uptake in invertebrates living in potentially contaminated environments is fraught with challenges, particularly related to obtaining enough samples for laboratory analysis and examining the variation among individuals or species in the environment. TrichAnalytics Inc. characterizes elemental and metal signatures at microscopic scales that includes individual invertebrates, as well as their individual body parts.

While invertebrates are typically very small, analysis of these species can have big impacts on industry. The cause of their survival and mortality can have huge financial implications to mines wanting to discharge effluent into an aquatic system or for the design of a multi-million dollar water treatment system. Using conventional analyses to solve complex industry issues are not always possible or economically feasible. TrichAnalytics Inc. can streamline our analytical approach to address your specific questions or challenges.
