Meet the ever-evolving demands of environmental compliance standards and regulations using Thermo Scientific wet chemical analysis workflows, including Thermo Scientific Aqua Master discrete analyzer systems. Capable of automated soil analysis, drinking water analysis, wastewater and sewage water analysis, these systems are verified to meet United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) requirements outlined in the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) and Clean Water Act (CWA). CWA Methods Update Rule for the Analysis of Effluent 40 CFR part 136 and other regulatory bodies, including the ASTM, ISO, and DIN also recommend wet chemical methods for wastewater analysis.

Consolidated multiparameter discrete analysis offers a high-throughput wet chemical analysis solution to these challenges. Discrete analyzers simultaneously test for up to 20 parameters on a single instrument with a single operator. These automated systems allow laboratories to simplify testing while saving time and cost. All necessary analysis steps are automated, providing true walkaway time for operators.

Gallery Aqua Master discrete analyzers are compliant with US EPA, NELAC, ASTM and other recognized international standards. In particular, these systems support the new NELAC and US EPA-approved enzymatic reduction methods for safer nitrate + nitrite (TON) measurements. This safe enzymatic method allows labs to move away from cadmium reduction coil methods that use hazardous chemicals, improving the safety and cost-per-analysis for TON measurement. Other commonly measured parameters are pH, alkalinity, conductivity, total hardness, orthophosphate, and common contaminants (sulfate, chloride, and ammonia). The tables below summarize US EPA and a variety of other regulatory approved discrete analyzer methods.
