  • Removal of Giardia spp. and Cryptosporidium spp. from water supply with high turbidity: analytical challenges and perspectives

    Giardia and Cryptosporidium species are a serious problem if present in water supplies. The removal of these protozoans and the adaptation of existing protocols are essential for supplying drinking water to developing countries. Considering this, the aim of this study is to evaluate, on a bench level, the removal of Giardia spp. cysts and of ...

  • A molecular imprinted polymer based sensor for measuring phosphate in wastewater samples

    Phosphate detection in water samples is still completed using colorimetric standard methods, which have a number of disadvantages, to such as being time consuming, requiring filtration, a number of different reagents, frequent calibration and proper disposal of waste chemicals generated. Hence, a simple cost effective analytical method and instrumentation is highly desirable to aid the ...

  • Comparison of methods for the enumeration of Clostridium perfringens spores in water

    Four methods for enumerating Clostridium perfringens spores in water were evaluated: (1) the IMM (Iron Milk Medium) method (MPN); (2) the LS (Lactose Sulfite Broth) method (MPN); (3) the m-CP (membrane filtration Clostridium perfringens Agar) method (membrane filtration); and (4) the TSC (Tryptose Sulfite Cycloserine Agar) method (membrane filtration). The performance of these ...

  • Sorption of per‐and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) on filter media: Implications for phase partitioning studies

    Per‐and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) including perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS) are ubiquitous in the environment. Investigations into their fate and potential phase‐partitioning behaviour require separation of solid from aqueous phases via filtration. However, sorption of aqueous‐phase PFASs on filtration media may lead to underestimation of PFAS ...

  • ChlorAC Buffer

    Introduction Trace analysis of carbamate insecticide residues in water is a routine requirement in the U.S. Since several of the common carbamates — Carbaryl, Oxamyl, Hydroxycarbofuran — are labile in water due to oxidation or hydrolysis, the samples and standards must be preserved in order to obtain valid results. USEPA Method 531.1 specifies pH adjustment, ...
