1. Non-profit 501(c)3 groups. Contact lab directors to see if your group would qualify without a 501(c)3 designation.
2. Research projects supported through grants and private funding.
3. Federal agencies, state agencies, county agencies, municipal agencies and private sector.

 4. Metals that are commonly found in higher concentrations. Radial view is used to accommodate the higher concentrations. Includes trace elements Mn, Fe, and Al that are commonly in high concentrations in AMD solutions.

5. Mercury (Hg) is not included due to current inability to analyze this metal in the TAL.

ICP Optical View Mode:

1. Radial – Generally used for elements in appreciable concentrations or when ICP is run in robust conditions. Detection limits are typically higher than in axial view mode.

2. Axial – Used for elements typically measured in trace (<1.0 ppm) concentrations. Detection limits are commonly a magnitude lower than in radial view mode.
