DELFT, The Netherlands, (April 30, 2007) - Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, announces that a leading 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. Featuring an integrated 63-position XYZ autosampler, the HiPerTOC is able to run samples thoroughly, efficiently and with greater ease enabling to substantially reduce analysis costs whilst ensuring major productivity gains and time savings. Additionally, by achieving a very low detection limit of 0.04ppm, this analyzer exceeds the EN 1484 and EPA 415.1 environmental regulations detection limit guidelines, ensuring absolute compliance.
These strict guidelines were introduced to monitor the quality of waste water and drinking water. Total Organic Carbon (TOC) 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 the disinfectants to form toxic and even carcinogenic compounds during the production of drinking water. To adequately measure for TOC, the EPA has set a detection limit of 0.500 mg/L. Instruments capable of analyzing TOC must meet and/or exceed these detection limit requirements.
The Thermo Scientific HiPerTOC analyzer is equipped with four different oxidation techniques for TOC analysis, high temperature oxidation, UV/persulfate, UV ultra pure and ozone promoted. The laboratory found that the analyzer provided accurate and precise results at both high and low concentration ranges in a wide variety of sample types ranging from dirty wastewater to clean drinking water. Additionally, requiring little or no training, the HiPerTOC analyzer has reduced training costs substantially. Due to the instrument's ease of use, even new personnel are able to operate it. Moreover, the size of the instrument is extremely favorable for the laboratory due to its small footprint.
