Disinfection Byproducts (DBPs) and Precursors in Drinking Water for EPA Compliance
This application note describes the use of the Aqualog for monitoring regulated Dissolved Organic Matter (DOM) and disinfection by-product issues for drinking water treatment.
Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs)
This study describes the application of simultaneous absorbance and fluorescence excitation-emission matrix (EEM) analysis for the purpose of identification and classification of freshwater planktonic algal species.
Fluorescence Spectroscopy and Water Quality
Water travels through the environment carrying dissolved organic matter (DOM), made up of various chemical compounds, which have entered the water column from many sources.
Analysis of Chlorine, Bromine and Iodine in Water using ICP-AES
Analysis of Chlorine, Bromine and Iodine in Water using ICP-AES
The analysis of Br, Cl, and I is possible with ICP-AES at low limits of detection due to an adaptation of the instrument. This adaptation doesn't affect the determination of other elements and will generally improve analytical performance for any elemental lines below 200 nm for example, Pb at 168 nm.
Brine Analysis with the Ultima Expert ICP-OES
Brine analysis with the Ultima Expert ICP-OES
The analysis of brines can be easily performed using the Ultima Expert. Low detection limits are obtained due to the ability of the system to perform the analysis without any dilution thanks to the 3 mm i.d. injector associated with radial viewing and the Total Plasma view that minimize matrix effects and enhance sensitivity. The sheath gas device allows perfect short and long-term stability of the system for routine analysis, without any internal standard, recalibration, or drift correction procedure. Good long term stability allows the use of the best plasma parameters and integration times for enhanced performance.
Petroleum and Oil Spill Products
Petroleum and Oil Spill Products
Global drinking water sources remain prone to carcinogenic petroleum product contaminations due to lack of detection capacity at or before treatment plant intake. The Aqualog A-TEEM method provides a reliable optical detection of these compounds at low quantities discriminating from the highly absorbing and fluorescent backgrounds of natural Dissolved Organic Matter (DOM) components.
Very Rapid Analysis of Supply Water, Sludge From Purification Station and Animal Food
ICP-OES is multielement technique that allows for the fast analysis of more than 75 elements on the Periodic Table in a variety of matrices. This application note examines the analysis of six water and animal food samples.
