PCB Congener & Aroclor Testing

Testing for PCB Congeners & AroclorsPCB congeners are chlorine-substituted biphenyl compounds. Individual congeners are identified by the number and position of the chlorine atoms around the biphenyl rings. There are 209 possible PCB congeners, ranging from the mono-substituted 2-chlorobiphenyl to the fully-substituted decachlorobiphenyl.
