Description of the programme

This proficiency testing (AGLAE's programme ‘44’) in soil is provided in the frame of:

  • accreditation scopes related to environmental analyses of soil (check AGLAE's accreditation - Cofrac No. 1-1664)

List of parameters

Détail des paramètres mis en oeuvre

PAHs: Acenaphtylene, acenaphtene, anthracene, benzo[a]anthracene, benzo[a]pyrene, benzo[b]fluoranthene, benzo[g,h,i]perylene, benzo[k]fluoranthene, chrysene, dibenzo[a,h]anthracene, fluoranthene, fluorene, indeno[1,2,3 - cd]pyrene, naphtalene, phenanthrene, pyrene

total hydrocarbons index

PCBs: congener 28, congener 52, congener 101, congener 118, congener 138, congener 153, congener 180 

A.G.L.A.E. provides proficiency tests on the one hand on raw materials (to include the part of measurement uncertainty due to the pretreatment phase like in your routine analyses) and on the other hand on pretreated materials (to guarantee the presence of all the parameters to analyse and carry out enhanced monitoring on the analytical part of the analysis, predominant source of uncertainty).

  • Pretreated material: material dried, crushed and sieved.
  • Raw material: material dried, lightly crushed but not sieved. If we are not able to guarantee the presence of all the parameters listed, an evaluation of your results will still be carried out (check of false positives).
