Integrated real-time gas analysis solution for chemical decontamination industry

by CIC Photonics, Inc.     based in Albuquerque, NEW MEXICO (USA)

The threat of terror in the form of chemical and biological warfare agents has been a reality globally since March 1995, when the Aum Shinrikyo sect killed 12 people and injured nearly 6,000 by releasing sarin nerve gas in the Tokyo subway system. More recently, the 2001 anthrax attacks in the USA was a wake-up call that the threat is real. Recent outbreaks of H1N1 and SARS posed threats of worldwide epidemics because air travel provides a means for these diseases to spread globally in less than 24 hours. A major concern of several US government agencies, such as the Department of Defense, Homeland Security, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is not only the detection of hazardous chemical and biological warfare agents (CBWA) or bacteria or viruses that pose an epidemic threat, but the timely decontamination of those agents to a level where they no longer pose a threat to human health and life. The solution requires a means to monitor the effectiveness of the decontaminating reactant or reactants to an endpoint that has been reliably shown to be more than 99% effective in rendering the targeted agents harmless under controlled conditions.

Cooling & Drinkingwater: ATP monitoring of biomass growth in waters

by microLAN On-line Biomonitoring Systems     based in Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS

Monitoring Biomass in (Cooling Tower) Waters through ATP monitoring

The TOXcontrol can be used for ATP monitoring. Currently our company is doing research for further developments for this application on the TOXcontrol.

Monitoring the microbial population of cooling towers is necessary in order to maintain the proper operation of the system. Conventional methods for monitoring microbial populations work by culturing microorganisms, a time-consuming procedure that requires days or even weeks of incubation before the results are known. Biofouling can be well-advanced before treatment begins. In addition, it is believed that this technique does not detect the full range of microbial life present in cooling systems.

Agricultural, Storm and Highway Runoff

by FTS     based in Victoria, BRITISH COLUMBIA (CANADA)

The ability to collect useful data about sediment transport and other pollutants closely coupled to SSC (such as nutrients, e-coli, phosphates and nitrates) is dependent on the timing and frequency of manual grab samples during run-off events. Most sediment and pollutant is transported during a small number of storm events which are infrequent and unpredictable. When they do occur, trained personnel or the proper equipment may not be available to collect grab samples. An automated pump sampler can eliminate the need to sample manually, but for the expense of a rechargeable power system, the autosampler, and possibly a datalogger and a typical turbidity probe, you’re no better off. With an automated pump sampler driven by the DTS-12 digital turbidity sensor and controlled by the Axiom H2 datalogger, you obtain a better understanding of the water’s quality, while taking a minimum number of samples, reducing site visits and saving lab analysis costs.
