Choosing the Best TOC Analysis Technique for Your Laboratory

The determination of organics in water by Total Organic Carbon (TOC) analysis is widely used as an indicator of water cleanliness. TOC analysis is relied upon in a variety of applications ranging from ultrapure water in the electronics and pharmaceutical industries, to drinking water safety and municipal and industrial wastewater discharge. The primary methodologies for TOC determination include Heated Persulfate, UV/Persulfate, and High-Temperature Combustion Oxidation. The other critical step in the measurement is the detection of carbon dioxide that is generated in the oxidation step.

With various methodologies available to determine total organic carbon, it can be confusing to know which technique is best for your application(s). As OI Analytical's TOC Product Manager, I have spent my fair share of time researching this very subject. In return, I have walked away with a solid understanding of each technique, what fits best in each scenario, and how to overcome challenges commonly experienced when running TOC samples.

If you are having difficulties running your TOC samples, or would just like to dive deeper into the world of TOC analysis, I invite you to join me for a LIVE WEBINAR on Thursday, June 21st as I discuss how to select the best TOC analysis technique for your laboratory. You will have a chance to ask questions following the webinar. Learn more HERE, or click on the button below to register today!
