Total Organic Carbon (TOC) measurement is of vital importance to the operation of water treatment due to organic compounds comprising a large group of water pollutants. TOC has been around for many years, and although it is a relatively simple analysis in theory, operational efficiency is paramount. Laboratories are continually looking to increase sample throughput, decrease overall cost of analysis, and improve ease of use while maintaining reproducibility. This poster will demonstrate the ability to test ground water and waste water samples showing a >25% improvement in laboratory efficiency following Standard Method 5310B and US EPA Method 415.1 guidelines.
