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...

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...

ABSTRACT: Sewage contains the excreted biomarkers of endogenous human metabolism that directly reflects the exposure and stressors placed upon an entire contributing community. The quantitative measurement of these specific biomarkers in sewage from communities allows the averaged patterns of factors related to lifestyle, disease and environment to be used for the assessment of human health and the environment. While most research in this field has been aimed at estimating the use of il...

ABSTRACT: Total Organic Carbon (TOC) is a measure of the carbon content of dissolved and undissolved organic matter present in a water sample. TOC analysis has been a dependable method used for waste minimization, product loss prevention, industrial and municipal waste water treatment plant control, final effluent discharge monitoring, process-cooling-boiler-condensate-intake-surface water monitoring, and many other water monitoring purposes in the industry. TOC measurement has a direct re...

The content of this online training session has been certified by the CPD *Certification Service as conforming to continuing professional development principles. Accurate particulate emission measurement in wet gas stream processes, such as monitoring after wet scrubber abatement systems and processes where the flue gas falls below the dew point or has water droplet presence can be challenging.  There are essentially two core technologies for monitoring particulate emission concent...
