USEPA Approved / Equivalent methods from the Spectroquant® Test Kits

Reliable and Accurate Monitoring of Drinking Water according to Safe Drinking Water Act and Waste Water according to Clean Water Act

USEPA approved methodsTesting of water according to national regulations or e.g. USEPA methods is becoming more and more important. Since contaminated water is harmful for humans and the environment, regulatory agencies, like the USEPA (U.S. Environmental Protection Agency), require the use of official methods when testing drinking water (Safe Drinking Water Act) and wastewater (Clean Water Act).

To support your analysis, many Spectroquant® test kits are developed according to approved USEPA or ISO standards. This ensures that you have reliable, reproducible results that are in compliance with regulations.

The USEPA has granted its approval to many of our photometric Spectroquant® methods. This means the methods have been found to be reliable and reproducible and their results are equivalent to those obtained via standard laboratory analysis.

For regulatory organizations whose work is subject to USEPA regulations, this approval demonstrates that Merck Millipore's Spectroquant® test kits are reliable and accurate. They can be used for effective daily routine monitoring of industrial wastewater, just as drinking water, as a means to protect the environment.

Take advantage of the benefits of our Spectroquant® test kits due to the fact that governmental organizations prefer wastewater to be analyzed using approved / equivalent methods. Obtain results identical to those with USEPA methods using these USEPA approved methods.
