The sediment environment is composed of a myriad of microenvironments, redox gradients, and other interacting physicochemical and biological processes.

Part XV.1 Ontario Regulation / The Analytical Laboratory (lab) provides analytical chemistry support to the Natural Resource Sector on a cost recovery basis. The lab conducts routine chemical, physical and biological analyses on soil, water and vegetation.

The lab also conducts specialized analyses and analytical method development in support of research projects. Section 5: Procedure for Testing a Reference Toxicant. The routine use of a reference toxicant is necessary to assess, under standardized test conditions, the relative sensitivity of the bacteria after reconstitution, the accuracy of dilution techniques, and other factors affecting the precision and reliability of data produced by laboratory personnel using the Solid Phase Reference Method (EC.

Statistical comparisons of biological data for test sediment(s) with that for the control sediment(s) should be made if the samples of reference sediment prove unsuitable for comparison with samples from other sites (e.g., due to their toxicity or physicochemical characteristics that are atypical of test sediments), or if the control sediment(s.

EA specializes in the performance of comprehensive sediment and soil toxicity and bioaccumulation studies. The laboratory can readily accommodate simultaneous testing for water, soil, and sediment samples with large, dedicated temperature and photoperiod controlled rooms designed for soil and sediment testing.
