Gas chromatography/mass spectrometry is a workhorse for the analysis of semivolatile organic compounds in environmental samples. The Agilent Intuvo 9000 GC represents a significant advancement in gas chromatography and provides a number of advantages for semivolatile analysis. In this presentation, the performance of the Intuvo GC is demonstrated for the analysis of semivolatiles based upon the specifications of USEPA method 8270D. Included in this study is an evaluation of the Intuvo during...

Best Practices for Environmental Sample Preparation and Testing Abstract: Environmental laboratories adhere to strict procedures to ensure that they remain certified and that their test results meet regulatory standards. During this session, Matt Groff, a veteran representative to environmental labs from GE Life Sciences, will discuss ways in which environmental sample preparation and testing can be run more efficiency and accurately, while meeting all the necessary requirements.  With o...

Emerging contaminants, such as pharmaceuticals, are a growing environmental concern.  These contaminants have been detected in environmental waters (such as surface water, ground and wastewater flows) at concentrations ranging from µg L-1 to ng L-1 level.  The majority are unregulated in the environment and as a result the risk assessment and ecotoxicological effect of the contaminants, their metabolites and/or transformation products are relatively unknown. To meet the prerequisite o...

Servelec Technologies, the leading provider of business optimisation solutions in the UK water industry, has successfully delivered a number of trials of its pioneering FlowSure software to UK water companies. Trials will be described that have demonstrated that annual six figure net savings can be realised by use of the software. More than a simple leakage detection system, FlowSure is self-learning anomaly detection software that helps to identify and predict emerging network events to enab...

Some years ago it was impossible thinking about having real data about the most important parameters in rivers, lakes, the sea or the environement Nowadays, is a reality. Water and Environment markets are growing not only as independent solutions for water areas or environment projets but also for Smart Cities deployments or Smart Agriculture ones. Libelium designs and manufactures hardware for wireless sensor networks and a complete software development kit (SDK) so that system integrators,...

Jar testing is used extensively in the drinking water purification industry to simulate performance of various chemical coagulants and process conditions without altering full-scale treatment process. This testing has become even more critical in recent years due to climate changes and security threats. For many plants, optimization of treatment processes to increase removal of total organic carbon (TOC) can help reduce formation of undesirable and highly regulated disinfection by-products (t...

UV/Vis spectrophotometers have been used to monitor water quality since the early 2000s. Calibration of these devices requires sampling campaigns to elaborate relations between recorded spectra and measured concentrations. Recent sensor improvements allow recordings of a spectrum in as little as 15 seconds, making it possible to record several spectra for the same sample. Spectrum repetitions provide new opportunities to detect outliers – a task that is difficult in non-repetitive spectra r...

NOW ONDEMAND Inorganic anions and cations are major components of drinking water, and are responsible for its unique taste and hardness.  However, some components, such as nitrite, bromide, strontium, manganese, and others represent risks to human health when consumed in excess of prescribed amounts. Other components, such as sodium and potassium should be consumed with caution among those at risk for heart disease or allergic reaction. Even fluoride, necessary for healthy teeth, becomes...

NOW ONDEMAND In this webinar, Lumex Instruments experts George Debus and Nikolai Ivanov discuss the advantages of atomic absorption spectroscopy with Zeeman background correction (ZAAS) for the analysis of mercury in complex samples. Determination of mercury in complex samples is always a challenge for the laboratory analysis. This especially applies to soil, crude oil, wastewater, ores, foodstuff, and  biological samples. As a rule, these objects are a complex mixture of various organ...
