Compliance in Every Drop

Dec 06 2018 Read 376 Times

Clean drinking water is essential to life - and it’s everyone’s right. And governments, contract testing labs, state-run utilities, and bottled water manufacturers themselves are increasingly tasked with testing higher volumes of diverse sample types, while adhering to strict and often-changing regulations.

With faster turnarounds - and lab technician turnover - adding to your challenges, don’t you want simple, effective solutions that give you confidence that you’re complying with EPA, EU, and APAC regulations?

A System for Every Sample

For detection of trace elements, volatiles and semivolatiles, and microplastics in drinking and bottled water, we deliver a portfolio of pioneering, yet innovative GC/MS, LC/MS/MS, ICP-MS, and other systems, plus automation, consumables, and world-class service and support. These solutions include:

NexION® 1000 ICP-MS - The ideal high-throughput system for running multielemental, trace-level environmental analyses - on time and on budget.

Clarus® SQ 8 GC/MS - Our high-throughput, rugged, dependable GC/MS offers sensitivity and stability for identification and quantitation of volatile and semivolatile compounds.

Flexar® UHPLC - This high-performance, top-of-the line LC is engineered for more uptime with less maintenance, and to handle multiple methods - with the highest acquisition rates in the industry.

QSight® Triple Quad LC/MS/MS - From our family of robust, reliable LC/MS/MS solutions, our new flagship QSight 400 series has the highest sensitivity to meet your most challenging regulations - and it requires virtually no maintenance, so you benefit from up to 15% more productivity.

Spotlight® 400 FT-IR Imaging - The system incorporates unique productivity tools and delivers an ATR imaging system that enables collection of high-resolution IR images of extremely small samples.

Drink in The Confidence

Drinking water analysis starts with confidence. From accommodating high volumes and diverse sample types to complying with testing regulations, our established workflow solutions ensure you get accurate, timely results, day after day. Our tested, proven analytical methods include:

Testing the Waters - Whatever the Source

Concentrations of elements in drinking water sourced from rivers, lakes, and groundwater can vary greatly. And with the uptick in urbanisation and industrialisation, mining, and mass farming, monitoring potable drinking water is more important than ever. See how our NexION 1000 ICP-MS system exceeds expectations for low-detection-limit requirements through a single, universal Collision-Reaction gas approach that increases productivity while meeting throughput requirements.

When Water Is Toxic

Collectively known as BTEX, benzene, toluene, ethyl benzene, and xylenes are toxic pollutants typically found in the waters near petroleum production and storage sites. Our Clarus SQ 8 GC/MS with TurboMatrix Headspace sample handling is an ideal solution for investigating these compounds at low levels - exceeding the current EPA detection limit requirements.

Concerns About Microplastics

Sure, bottled water is considered “pure,” but single-use plastic bottles can take years to degrade, and when they do, the secondary microplastics can end up in the environment - or in the bottled water itself. Our Spotlight 400 FT-IR imaging system delivers excellent analytical techniques for detection and identification of microplastics at sizes as low as 20 microns.
