The detection of SARS-CoV-2 viral RNA in wastewater has rapidly become a significant tool to address the ongoing pandemic. Wastewater detection of SARS-CoV-2 is particularly useful where significant numbers of asymptomatic infections occur. A balanced nutrient ratio is essential if the microorganisms are to function at maximum efficiency. The most important of these nutrients are nitrogen and phosphorus. It is helpful to know how many people are contributing to the wastewater so that detected amounts of RNA can be compared or ‘normalized’ to faecal load. Other important environmental factors need to be considered in order to provide context and meaning to the results so that trends can be interpreted.  Site profiling is also necessary in determining a baseline for biomarkers at each site. Several options exist that may allow estimation of relative human faecal load including biomarkers such as ammoniacal nitrogen, urea and creatinine.

Determining the basic chemical reference parameters such as pH, conductivity, and population biomarkers for a large number of samples on daily basis is highly challenging. Discrete analyzer consolidates these parameters and offers a high throughput solution. 

In this interactive webinar, Reg Godwin, from the Environment Agency UK, will present sewage water monitoring by discrete analyzer for population biomarkers and share their early study results.  Dr. Hari Narayanan will provide an overview of discrete analyzers and sewage water applications.

  • How population biomarker analysis – ammonia and phosphorous help with water-based epidemiology (WBE)
  • Importance of pH, conductivity, and other potential biomarkers in sewage water analysis and how it helps with WBE

Pesticides are the chemicals that help to maintain supply of many modern foods. Highly polar pesticides such as glyphosate, glufosinate, fosetyl-aluminium, bialaphos, ethephon, and phosphonic acid find widespread use, yet their detection and reliable quantitation in foods at trace levels is still a challenge for analytical science. Applying proper analytical techniques, performed with instrumentation designed specifically for ionic and highly polar chemicals, is the key.

In this SelectScience webinar, Jim Garvey, Head of Food Chemistry, and Michael Kelly, Senior Chemist, will discuss how these chemicals can be separated into their native ionic form on an ion-exchange column, and how this enables the quantification of polar pesticides by tandem mass spectrometry over and over again for hundreds of injections.

Monitoring common anions in drinking water is essential to ensure safe drinking water and protecting public health. The most accepted methodology is using ion chromatography for the separation and quantification of the anions of concern, such as US EPA 300.0 and 300.1. Often, these systems require auxiliary items, such as peristaltic or secondary pumps, which increase the complexity of operating and maintaining the system.

In this presentation, we show a simple, streamlined and effective approach to doing ion chromatography with carbonate-based eluents and counterion suppression using a single regenerant solution.

Who Should Attend:

  • Those running common anions in water samples.

Solution for Routine and Comprehensive Industrial Process Water and Waste Water Analysis

For safe and profitable operation of all major water consuming industries such as chemical and petrochemical manufacturing, monitoring, testing and maintaining sustainable water program is essential. To prevent corrosion of expensive industrial components, save on water treatment chemicals, attain energy efficiency, and fulfill regulatory requirements, testing feed water through to waste water on a routine basis is critical. For these reasons major water-consuming industries have a sustainable process water "reuse-recycle" program that minimizes the need for fresh water intake. How does that impact the laboratory? Testing many types water samples for multiple analytes of varying concentrations on a daily basis increases the overall sample testing demand on utilities and laboratories.

In this webinar, learn the importance of basic and comprehensive water analysis needs and the true walkaway solution options available with an integrated discrete analyzer. The high-throughput ion analysis capabilities of Reagent Free Ion Chromatography (RFIC) systems will be highlighted, along with the combined power of Discrete Analyzers and Ion Chromatography (Disc-IC) for routine and comprehensive water analysis.

View the Executive Summary

With the number of environmentally relevant per and polyfluorinated alkyl substances (PFAS) compounds and precursors that cannot yet be analyzed continue to increase, there is a need to develop suitable analytical methods for their detection. Many PFAS are not accounted for by existing analytical methods. There is a need for a single analytical workflow that would allow for a direct determination of as many PFAS as possible.

Automated combustion ion chromatography (CIC), can be used to determine organic halogen contaminants, such as AOX (X = F, Cl, and Br). The AOF approach enables the determination of PFAS in surface water, groundwater, and wastewater. While LC-MS/MS and GC-MS/MS methods use a specified set of PFAS for their evaluation, the adsorption process for the AOF method ensures the extraction and determination of more components – PFAS and other fluorinated compounds – than the previously mentioned approaches.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • Recent developments in analysis of fluorine in PFAS in environmental markets
  • When to use CIC and when to use LC-MS/MS
