Analysis of complex samples in a geochemical laboratory

Faster and better analysis of complex samples in a geochemical laboratory

The Council for Geoscience (CGS) offers a wide range of services, including determination of anion concentrations in water as well as leachable concentrations in rock and soil samples. They were consistently presented with complex samples containing high levels of Cl and SO4 in addition to very low concentrations of NO3 and PO4 .


Read how the Thermo Scientific™ Gallery™ Plus discrete analyzer offered the solution by enabling them to automate their analyses and provide better and faster environmental monitoring.

Enzymatic Analysis of Urea in Swimming Pool Water

Enzymatic Analysis of Urea in Swimming Pool Water

It is important to control the level of urea since it is a potential source of hazardous ammonia chloramines and a possible nutrient for bacteria and algae, all of which pose a health risk. Typically measured by the Koroleff method, which is based on persulfate digestion, urea can also be measured using a simpler enzymatic method.

Going mobile—portable equipment for water testing in the field
As water systems face increasing pressure to improve quality while reducing costs, having a full complement of mobile testing gear could very well be the best way to achieve both. While laboratory work is critical in the field of water and wastewater (WW) treatment, a good deal of data measurement occurs away from the confines of research facilities.

Metal analysis


Metal contamination is one of the major concerns in our environment. Metal geochemical cycling is a result of both natural weathering and human activities. These metals, especially toxic heavy metals, have entered our food chain and influenced our health. Monitoring and analyzing these metals are critical to protecting public health. 


Metal analysis


There are many ways to detect metals. For trace metals, however, atomic spectrometry is a commonly used technique. Our solutions for trace metal analysis bring ppm to ppt levels of detection. Meanwhile, you can also view our on-demand webinars and application notes for different environmental applications and troubleshooting tricks.
