Teledyne Tekmar Instruments Testing Cincinnati Water after West Virginia MCHM Leak

Posted by Jason Davis on Fri, Jan 17, 2014 @ 10:15 AM

When a NBC Nightly News story showed our instruments preparing water samples after the recent 4-methylcyclohexane methanol (MCHM) contamination of West Virginia drinking water, we felt like heroes, and yes, maybe a bit like parents. There was our very own Stratum Purge and Trap Concentrator and AQUATek 70 Vial Autosampler at work in Cincinnati’s Richard Miller Water Treatment Plant.

Total Solution for Food and Environmental Laboratory Testing

Posted by Teledyne Tekmar on Mon, Jun 03, 2013 @ 09:24 PM

Over the past few months, Ab Sciex hosted a technical talk with invited guest from Teledyne Tekmar, Phenomenex, and Gerstel on driving innovation, “Better Ideas for the Modern Food and Environmental Testing Laboratory”. The goal of this workshop was to show that collectively these companies could create a total solution for food and environmental laboratory testing.  It, also, served as a forum to talk about pertinent issues and challenges in regards to food testing.  Teledyne Tekmar was privileged to introduce the new AutoMate-Q40 a revolutionary system specifically designed and optimized to automate the QuEChERS sample preparation workflow. The AutoMate-Q40 system automates the following sampler preparation functions:

Excited about Headspace Autosamplers

Posted by Teledyne Tekmar on Mon, May 13, 2013 @ 04:54 PM

Excitement abounds in the Teledyne Tekmar labs as the Versa headspace autosampler continues to meet the challenges of an ever-changing environmental science world. Its big brother, the HT3, started this excitement when it successfully met the challenge to detect low levels of 1,4-dioxane, bromoform, acrylonitrile and vinyl chloride in water following new environmental guidance from Korea and the Asian market.

Analytical Chemical Methods Technical Workshop on Hydraulic Fracturing

Posted by Teledyne Tekmar on Sat, Apr 13, 2013 @ 04:51 PM

The US EPA hosted a technical workshop on analytical chemical methods for hydraulic fracturing on February 25th in Research Triangle Park, NC. The goal of these workshops is to gather together stakeholders, technical experts, and EPA representatives to get updates on the progress of the EPA’s testing with regards to hydraulic fracturing. It also serves as a forum to discuss best testing practices and methodologies for this area. Teledyne Tekmar was privileged to participate as a speaker and participant in the round table panel discussions that coincided with the workshop.

Calibration by Dilution

Posted by Teledyne Tekmar on Sun, Jan 13, 2013 @ 04:49 PM

Automated sample preparation is built upon making instruments easier to use, faster, and more efficient. More recent features to purge and trap systems like mass flow controllers and variable volume standard addition, give more method flexibility than legacy products. The 27 mL syringe on our Atomx VOC sample prep system allows for dilution of high level samples as well as automated methanol extractions.

So you have a leak…

Posted by Teledyne Tekmar on Tue, Nov 13, 2012 @ 04:39 PM

You have successfully installed your TOC analyzer and, as suggested, you run a “Leak Check” prior to starting your analysis. The leak check fails, so you tighten everything, perform another leak check, and still, the instrument does not pass. Without a plan of attack, this can be frustrating and time consuming. Fortunately, there are some troubleshooting techniques that can help.
