Features and Benefits

We have a vast portfolio of environmental PT schemes with "fit-for-purpose" samples to help you meet the needs of the laboratory.

Our proficiency testing (PT) program is a benchmark to:

  • provide staff with an insight into their laboratory′s performance, to verify the accuracy and reliability of their testing process
  • provide a comparison of performance with that of other laboratories, nationally and internationally
  • test and educate staff, provide a better understanding of the impact of incorrect results and identify areas where there may be problems
  • provide an independent evaluation of laboratory performance
  • demonstrate to clients, colleagues and accreditation bodies that there is a commitment to quality

Preparation Note


  • The PT sample size provided is 10 g of soil.
  • The soil has been sterilized to minimize degradation of the sample. The PT sample has been sized to 100 mesh.
  • Recommended storage condition is 4 ºC.
  • The evaluation of results will be based on study statistics as required by TNI.
  • The sample has been intentionally prepared with an apparent headspace.

Sample Preparation

  • For Method 8280A, an 8 g sample size contains sufficient concentrations of analytes such that levels above the method specified quantitative limits will be realized.
  • For Method 8290, a 1 g sample will contain concentrations of analytes such that levels above the method specified quantitative limits will be realized.
  • This holds true though levels of detection will be elevated due to the reduced sample size used relative to that specified in the method.
  • Report on a wet weight basis.

NOTE: The PT sample contains less than 3% moisture. Minimize exposure to the environment, cap when not in use.

Storage and Stability

Please refer to sample label for expiration date, specific storage temperature, and specific storage conditions.
