Accurately measure soil contaminants, including heavy metals, petroleum hydrocarbons and volatile solvents, using Merck’s filters and filter holders for soil sample collection and preparation.
Merck’s hazardous waste filtration solutions include a Zero Head Space Extractor system for sample extraction that meets the requirements of the EPA’s Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure (TCLP), plus a variety of filters, holders and manifolds optimized to deliver superior results during downstream analyses.

In recognition of Merck’s expertise in waste management, the United States Environmental Protection Agency has recommended the use of our products in its TCLP Method 1311. Our products and services provide you a complete solution for successfully performing the TCLP method on your waste sample.
TCLP determines the mobility of a specified list of organic and inorganic contaminants (metals, pesticides, herbicides, solvents) in liquid, solid, and multiphasic wastes. TCLP simulates leaching of these contaminants in a landfill environment over time. Before waste may be deposited in designated landfills, it must be tested by TCLP.
