Chromatography In Water Analysis
- Oct 08, 2018 -

Chromatography is one of the most powerful analytical chemistry techniques we have. With relatively few components, a simple technique and sound theoretical underpinnings — it is no wonder that laboratories around the world adopt chromatography to help give them answers.

A good example of chromatography being a vital part of everyday live is happening in the city of Salem, Oregon. The city gets it water supply from a reservoir known as Detroit Lake. And since May of this year, the city has been hit with at least four alerts warning residents not to drink the water coming from their taps, particularly residents categorised as vulnerable.

The alerts have been issued after high levels of cyanotoxins were found in the water — toxic algae that can give a range of symptoms from nausea and diarrhoea to breathing difficulties. The authorities are using chromatography to give accurate result of the levels of toxins in the water to keep the residents safe. Water is another thing taken for granted in modern life — just like chromatography.

In this case, TOC vials plays an import rule in water analysis. ALWSCI 40ML Utral Clean TOC (Total organic carbon) Vial, certified <10ppb is widely used in water analysis. It capped with teflon silicone septa with dust cap, good block packing. All special design if for making your water analysis better.
