Eurofins Advinus has extensive experience in conducting environmental fate studies using both radiolabelled and also cold compounds. Our expertise include, handling radiolabelled molecules; metabolite identification; mass balance; rate constant and half-life determinations; quantum yield determinations for the photolysis reactions; monitoring of chiral conversions; etc. Radio-HPLC, LSC, LC-MS/MS, GC-MS, combustion, trap analysis, etc. are employed for these studies.
The offered environmental fate studies include:

  • Adsorption / desorption on soil
  • Rate and route of degradation on soil (aerobic and anaerobic)
  • Rate and route of degradation on sediment systems
  • Hydrolysis
  • Direct and indirect aqueous photolysis
  • Photolysis on soil surface
  • High Temperature hydrolysis
  • Mineralisation in Surface Water
  • Mobility in soil
  • Ready biodegradability
