EAL - Analytical Services
The Environmental Analysis Laboratory (EAL) specialises in a range of quality analytical services:
Operating since 1993, EAL is part of Southern Cross University (SCU), located at the Lismore campus.
Strong partnerships with SCU's Special Research Centres, and EALs flexibility and capacity to diversify, enables the laboratory to adopt new and innovative techniques as they are developed and tested, through ongoing research.

All analysis is backed by rigorous quality control procedures, with proven reproducibility through regular proficiency trials. EAL provides world-standard work in the shortest possible time frame, at commercially competitive prices. Full confidentiality and security are provided for all analytical work.
New national acid sulfate soil manuals released
National acid sulfate soil guidance documents were published in June on the Water Quality Australia website http://www.waterquality.gov.au/
These national documents supersede previous manuals, but should be used in conjunction with state guidelines.
Nick Ward, Nadia Toppler and Graham Lancaster, of EAL, co-authored the following manuals and are happy to answer any queries:
- National acid sulfate soils identification and laboratory methods manual
- National acid sulfate soils sampling and identification methods manual
- Overview and management of monosulfidic black ooze (MBO) accumulations in waterways and wetlands.
