Total Organic Carbon AnalyzersTotal Organic Carbon (TOC)

Total Organic Carbon (TOC) is an important water quality parameter, and OI Analytical’s reliable TOC systems process naturally-occurring and synthetic compounds for analysis of the total organic carbon (TOC), total inorganic carbon (TIC), and non-purgeable organic carbon (NPOC) content. Offering both heated-persulfate and combustion TOC, OI Analytical is a trusted partner in providing reliable TOC analysis.

Automated Chemistry Analyzers (ACA)

Manual sample preparation is time-consuming and can negatively impact lab efficiency and data quality. Flow analysis automates both simple and complex, multi-step analysis procedures requiring in-line sample preparation. Improve workflow with OI Analytical’s flow chemistry analyzers, providing the capability to run multiple flow methods simultaneously.

Gas Chromatography (GC)

Select GC detectors enhance chromatographic performance by measuring trace levels of target compounds in the presence of higher-concentration compounds or matrix interferences. OI Analytical offers various sensor detector technologies, including Pulsed Flame Photometric Detector (PFPD), Halogen Specific Detector (XSD), and Electrolytic Conductivity Detector (ELCD). The use of an OI Analytical tandem GC Detector combines a photoionization detector (PID) with a Flame Ionization Detector (FID), or a second selective detector provides two simultaneous chromatograms from a single run.
