  • The productive environmental laboratory: BSK Labs boosts efficiency with Metrohm IC

    BSK Labs runs a number of environmental laboratories and service centers along the west coast of the US. A total of 70 employees – including microbiologists, chemists, lab technicians, and support staff – make sure that the 200 to 350 samples that come in every week are analyzed. BSK Labs specializes in potable water chemistry, ground water monitoring, storm water runoff, solid waste ...

  • Indoor-outdoor relationship of suspended particulate matter and its chemical composition at different sizes

    The indoor-outdoor concentration relationship of particulate matter PM9.0 (aerodynamic diameter 9 µm or smaller) and its chemical composition (sulfate, nitrate, chloride and ammonium) has been studied. Samples were collected using four identical Anderson impactors, each one collecting nine size ranges by eight impactor stages (9, 5.8, 4.7, 3.3, 2.1, 1.1, 0.65 and 0.43 µm) plus a back-up ...

  • Assessment of water treatment processes: detailed organic matter characterisation and membrane fouling indices at the Loddon Water Treatment Plant, Victoria, Australia

    Recent advances in membrane technology have led to its broad application, and reverse osmosis (RO) systems now represent the fastest growing segment of the desalination market. Its performance is hindered by membrane fouling. In this study pre-treatment methods to reduce RO fouling were investigated including flocculation, adsorption and ion exchange. Detailed organic characterisations were made ...

  • Development and Applications of a Combined FastGC Proton-Transfer-Reaction Mass Spectrometry Instrument

    Proton-Transfer-Reaction Mass Spectrometry (PTR-MS). which is a very sensitive method for real-time gas analysis, has become a widespread technology in the food and flavor research area for over more than 15 years [1]. However, as in this field often isomeric compounds have to be identified and quantified independently, there is a need for additional measures to increase selectivity. In the past ...

  • Analysis of biogenic amines food and physiological samples

    Histamine and other polyamines such as Putrescine, Cadaverine, Spermidine and Spermine are products of decomposition. The level of histamine, in particular, has been used as a regulatory guideline for degree of decomposition in fish. Also, Histamine and Tyramine levels are of interest to producers of wine and cheese. The polyamines, Spermidine, Spermine and Putrescine are elevated in neoplastic ...

  • Characterisation for some emission sources in CMB calculation for Mae Moh area, Thailand

    Particulate samples of agricultural waste burning, straw burning, forest leaf burning, heavy duty truck emission, paved road dust, soil, agricultural soil, coal, electrostatic precipitator ash, and emission from stack power plant were collected from the Mae Moh area. Chemical compositions of sampling filters were analysed to determine the particulate matter source profiles. The analysis included ...

  • Analytical Testing for Corexit Dispersants Used in the Gulf Spill

    The analysis of various sample matrices (seawater, sediment, tissue) to determine concentrations of Corexit dispersants used in the Gulf spill requires the use of one or more of the components in the dispersant as a tracer. The primary active ingredient (i.e. the primary surfactant) in the Corexit products is Dioctyl Sulfosuccinate Sodium Salt (DOSS). The other primary ingredients function as ...


  • Comprehensive analysis of tobacco smoke using TD–GC×GC–TOF MS with Tandem Ionisation

    The hazardous constituents of cigarette smoke have attracted considerable attention lately, especially with increasing regulation around the world limiting or banning smoking in public places – and even in private cars if children are present. From an analytical perspective, however, there is much that remains to be learnt about the composition of cigarette smoke, because of its high degree ...

  • Air Monitoring for the Gulf Oil Spill

    Ambient air monitoring is a priority in the ongoing efforts to contain and manage the oil spill from the Deepwater Horizon in the Gulf of Mexico. The following provides information about the kinds of airborne contaminants that are currently being monitored in the Gulf, how they are collected and how they are analyzed. For a given project, a suitable sampling plan – developed by ...


  • Toxicity Identification Evaluation (TIE) as a Tool for Water Quality Management

    Whole effluent toxicity (WET) testing has evolved into a critical element of many National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permits issued to both industrial and municipal dischargers. Over 6,500 dischargers to both fresh and salt waters are required to conduct toxicity tests to determine if their effluent might be potentially toxic to organisms in the receiving system. While ...
