  • Aptamer-based and DNAzyme-based biosensors for environmental monitoring

    Aptamers and DNAzymes are small single-stranded nucleic acids that fold into a well-defined three-dimensional structure with high specificity to various ligands, such as low-molecular-weight organic or inorganic substrates or macromolecules. Their specificity is comparable with and in certain cases even higher than those of antibodies, and they can be applied for specific detection of various ...

  • Are environmental monitoring manufacturers pulling a fast one with back-to-base servicing?

    Geotech's users of environmental monitoring equipment are not alone in their frustration at having valuable equipment unavailable when they require servicing.  Is this just a money-making scam?  What do users get for their money?  By combining maximum possible local support with a 100-point factory full service schedule, Geotech believe they have the best balance of user ...

  • A Guide to Oil in Water Monitoring for Environmental Compliance

    Applications for industrial oil in water monitoring can vary greatly. In upstream and midstream oil and gas production applications, monitoring separation efficiencies is key to optimize production rates, preventative maintenance, chemical use, flow, and environmental compliance. Separated water from the oil is called produced water and it must be cleaned of oil before disposal or ...

  • National Occupational Standards for Environmental Monitors - CORE NOS

    Environmental monitors (EMs) are individuals who observe the environment and the impacts of human and industrial activities, and communicate this information to various stakeholders. In this way, they may help to mitigate negative environmental impacts. In addition to this Core document, which contains the core skills needed for all EM careers, there are two areas of specialization for EMs: ...

  • Basics of satellite antenna positioning for environmental monitoring

    Users of geostationary satellite based telemetry systems have one unique challenge that other types of telemetry users do not – that is, calculating the angles needed to point their transmitting antennas to orbiting satellite. The process is actually fairly straightforward, although there are some common pitfalls that can be avoided with a little pre-planning. First, we need to look at how the ...
