Webinar series explores getting the most from TOC water analysis


Total organic carbon (TOC) analysis is quickly emerging as one of the most essential tools available for assessing water and soil samples, as it delivers key insights for contamination monitoring, environmental analysis and purification benchmarking. A new webinar series launching in August 2022 will explore how laboratories can deliver the best results and processes from their TOC analyses.

The webinar series can be signed up for here, and comes courtesy of Elementar UK, the elemental analysis experts behind the enviro TOC platform. The presentations will provide vital insights into how analysts can get the most out of TOC analysis in various crucial applications, including wastewater, surface water, seawater and soil assessments.

The first in this webinar series will be held on August 2nd 2022, and will be entitled “Overcoming the challenges of TOC and TNb determination in environmental & wastewater”. This will explore the best methods for TOC and TNb (total bound nitrogen) analysis in environmental and wastewater, and discuss the benefits of TOC compared to traditional COD and BOD methods.

The series will continue with a total of five webinars, covering different aspects of the TOC analytical process, and how to deliver the best results:


Each of these webinars will be hosted by Dr Calum Preece, product manager for the environmental science market at Elementar UK, a highly experienced scientific researcher with expertise in the field of TOC analysis.

Dr Preece said: “Measuring the TOC content of water and soil samples plays a crucial role in our ability to monitor environmental trends, water quality and waste processing efficiency. This method delivers precise, accurate and reproducible results within minutes, and can run 24/7 with low maintenance requirements.

“To get the most out of TOC, labs will need to equip themselves with capable TOC analyser equipment and learn to optimise their methods and workflows for optimal performance and efficiency. This webinar series will provide attendees with the knowledge and expertise they need to take their analysis to the next level, and unlock the full potential of TOC.”
