Water analysis - automation as a viable approach to increase efficiency and reproducibility




Date: 14:00:00 - Apr 07 2022
Speakers: Heike Risse, Jennifer Lüber
Moderators: Tom Lynch CChem FRSC

This eLearning demonstrates how to consolidate routine analysis of multiple parameters on a modular platform.

Increasing numbers of samples, multiple parameters to be determined, mandatory compliance with national and international standards – water works, bottlers of mineral water and some sectors of the process industry all face the same challenge: How to cope with more analytical tasks while human resources in the laboratory are limited?

In this eLearning session we demonstrate how automation can help you keep pace with today’s complex QC requirements in the water industry. Learn how all your standard measurements and titrations but also parameters like turbidity, color, and all critical ions can be consolidated on a modular, fully automated analytical platform – including dedicated sample preparation. Best practice examples are given from modern water laboratories that were able to achieve time savings of up to 60% while safeguarding robust, consistent results of their daily routine analytics.

Key Learning Objectives

Participate in this eLearning to learn:

  • How to consolidate typical QC applications from the water industry on a fully automated analytical platform
  • How much time can be freed up performing multiple different analytical measurements in parallel
  • How automated sample preparation can be seamlessly integrated on such a platform
  • How automated systems can increase reproducibility of results

Who should attend this eLearning?

  • Water authorities responsible for water quality monitoring
  • Managers and experts from environmental water testing laboratories
  • Managers and experts in charge of industrial process water monitoring
