Maintaining quality water sources and protecting our environmental water resources is fundamental in maintaining life.
As the primary water sources for human use and consumption, surface and ground water quality is essential and testing is critical for human safety. The wastewater from these sources is treated and sometimes resourced for reuse, making wastewater testing another essential part of water quality testing.
The mass spectrometer is the preferred technology for water quality testing, from surface and environmental water, to drinking water and wastewater. The ability to detect very low levels of a variety of chemical compounds, ranging from pesticides and pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCP), to residual explosives and disinfection by-products, make it ideal for water quality testing applications.
