Drinking water and wastewater analysis demand a solution like liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) to help environmental testing labs monitor the water that flows through our taps for safety and compliance with regulatory standards.
As an environmental scientist, you know that water quality begins with municipal or industrial wastewater that is treated and sometimes resourced for reuse. You also understand the importance of environmental epidemiology and the critical need to detect very low levels of a variety of pollutants and contaminants of emerging concern (CECs).
Enter mass spectrometry.
The mass spectrometry advantage for water and wastewater testing
When it comes to water resource management, quantifying very low-level contaminants is critical. This is where mass spectrometry as a technique can help. SCIEX mass spectrometry solutions are sensitive, selective and specific, and they can help you:
- Monitor, detect and quantify very low levels of a variety of chemical compounds, including pesticides, pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs), residual explosives and disinfection by-products (DBPs) using a single analytical instrument
- Simplify sample preparation with highly sensitive
- Maximize uptime and sample throughput with
highly rugged hardware
- Get results from your data quickly using
powerful software solutions
