The Aqualog is the world’s fastest fluorometer that simultaneously scans for absorbance and fluorescence excitation and emission matrix (A-TEEM). Unlike traditional scanning spectrofluorometers that take hours tying researchers to lab benches, Aqualog’s patented optical technology with multichannel CCD detection allows for rapid A-TEEM scans from seconds up to minutes per sample. Aqualog’s ability for automatic inner-filter effects (IFE) correction not only guarantees the accuracy of the fluorescence spectra but also extends the sample’s concentration linearity range.
With the combination of multivariate analysis, Aqualog A-TEEM represents the gold standard for water research. It is a simple, fast, and powerful analytical tool that in some cases displaces laborious and expensive chromatography-based techniques.
This presentation will detail on how the A-TEEM features provides true, traceable molecular fingerprints, as well as precise quantification for compounds of interest. Topics will include the detection of colored dissolved organic matter (CDOM), monitoring of disinfection byproduct formation, and early warning for algal bloom, oil, and other contamination in source water.
What you will learn:
- What is A-TEEM?
- What is IFE and what is the benefit of IFE correction?
- What makes the Aqualog unique?
Who would benefit from attending:
Water quality lab managers, chemists, water treatment plant operators, academic researchers, and graduate students who are interested in analytical chemistry applied to the water quality topics.
