Very Low Detection Limit in Spotlight
Thu, 05/31/2007 - 10:22am
Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. has announced that a global supplier of testing and thermal processing services has selected the Thermo Scientific HiPerTOC total organic carbon benchtop analyzer for its environmental inorganic and organic carbon analyses of water samples. By achieving a very low detection limit of 0.04 ppm, the analyzer exceeds the EN 1484 and EPA 415.1 environmental regulations detection limit guidelines, ensuring absolute compliance. The guidelines were introduced to monitor the quality of wastewater and drinking water. Total organic carbon analysis indicates the presence of any organic compounds, some of which can be potentially dangerous in the cleaning process and have the potential to react with disinfectants to form toxic and even carcinogenic compounds during the production of drinking water. To adequately measure for total organic carbon, the EPA has set a detection limit of 0.500 mg/L. More information is available by calling 800-532-4752 or visiting www.thermo.com/elemental.
