Are You in the Market for a TOC Analyzer?

Total Organic Carbon (TOC) analyzers are a mainstay of environmental and quality control chemistry. TOC, a crucial metric in many processes, may arise from a combination of living or dead organisms or chemical contamination. Its measurement can serve as a surrogate for more difficult measurements or a screen for further analysis.

Top 5 Questions You Should Ask When Buying a TOC Analyzer

  1. Is the TOC technology suitable for your specific application or water conditions? Many TOC technologies may be suitable only for waters with a narrow range of organic or inorganic contaminants.
  2. Are different models available to meet your current and future sampling needs (i.e. online, portable, laboratory)? Do these models use similar technology to simplify method transfer or data comparability from lab to online?
  3. Does the company offer the documentation and support necessary to help meet applicable industry or government regulations?
  4. What is the company’s level of experience supporting sales of TOC analyzers in your specific industry? Do they understand the unique challenges specific to your application?
  5. What type of service, applications, and technical support are available during and after the purchasing process?

Questions from the Vault

We have so many questions filling our forums that sometimes questions can be missed and go without answers. Can you help us provide answers for these users with unanswered questions?

Beckman Coulter Microfuge 18 - Thermistor Problem
I've replaced a burned out thermistor on my Beckman 18 but soon after it burned out again. Any idea what might be causing it to burn? Advise this member.

PerkinElmer LAMBDA 25/35/45 - Wont communicate with computer
I have a Perkin Elmer lambda 25 and I can't connect it with computer. I see that when I turn on the instrument the UV lamp turns on but not the Vis lamp, if I restart the instrument then the UV lamps turn off and the vis lamp turns on. I cannot make them both work. I cant seem to find the problem and I can't hear the noise of initializing. Any help would be very appreciated. Advise this member.

BioTek Synergy H4 - Beam width
I'm trying to run a fluorescence output assay but there is a lot of well to well variation. Slit or beam width is only 2mm is it possible to increase? Advise this member.
