OVERVIEW

Ion chromatography is most frequently used to determine the concentration of common anions and cations in water samples in compliance with EPA methods. The growing list of contaminants and stringent regulatory requirements forces environmental labs to process more samples in less time to remain profitable.

On average, 40% of IC samples require dilution and often a second run if one or more ions are out of calibration range. Additionally, the majority of water samples need filtration before measurement, a potentially time-consuming and expensive sample preparation step that can decrease sample throughput...

KEY LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

- Discover how Brad Meadows from BSK Associates saves his lab time and increases sample throughput with an optimized IC analysis method

- Understand the advantages provided by in-vial dilution that increases the number of billable samples analyzed each day

- See the cost-saving simplicity of in-line ultrafiltration for samples that require filtration prior to analysis

WHO SHOULD ATTEND
  • • QA/QC managers from environmental testing labs. Regulatory affairs managers responsible for labs at water treatment plants
  •  
  • • Users performing waste water analysis in the petrochemical industry and at power plants or in the pharmaceutical industry
  •  
  • • Anyone running EPA 300 who is looking to improve the productivity and profitability of their lab
