Sometimes toxicity results from hair analysis indicate there must be a source of this substance your horse has access too. For example your water may be high in aluminium, lead, mercury.

So in conjunction with the leading Australian Univercity research laboratory EAL we are offering an Agricultural Stock Use test for:

Aluminium, arsenic, cadmium, chromium, copper, iron, lead, manganese, mercury, nickel, selenium, silver, zinc. PLUS Antimony, barium, beryllium, bismuth, boron, bromide, cobalt, lithium, molybdenum, silicon, strontium, thallium, thorium, uranium, vanadium and salts – calcium, chloride, magnesium, potassium, sodium and sulphur.

All this for $149 (SW PACK 053)

In addition to total concentrations analysed by routine ICPMS methods, EAL can provide speciation of chromium, mercury and arsenic, with extremely low detection limits, for environmental trace metal and ecotoxicology applications. Speciation analysis is performed using High Pressure Liquid Chromatography coupled to a Perkin Elmer NexION 350D ICPMS (HPLC-ICPMS).

Stable isotope analysis

EAL can provide stable isotope analysis for the light elements carbon, nitrogen, hydrogen and oxygen in environmental samples. This analysis is undertaken through partnership with the Centre for Coastal Biogeochemistry Research (CCBR). Four isotope ratio mass spectometers (IRMS) have been coupled to peripheral elemental and total organic carbon analysers as well as gas chromatographs.

Send hair sample with the Submission Form below. Use

SW PACK053 as the test code and post to EAL Lab. They will phone you when they receive your package for the $149 payment and then email results directly to you once complete. The whole process takes about 2-3 weeks.

How to take a sample

• Minimum of 1 L in a plastic water bottle
• Thoroughly rinse the bottle with sample water before collecting a representative sample, filling the bottle to the top
• Label the bottle with site name and date of sampling
