Wherever it is used, it's important to know the purity of what, and whether an instrument can be trusted to ascertain purity.
Water testing is vital for many applications, including the detection of arsenic forms in sea and river waters, documentation of sodium and potassium levels in food and beverage feed waters, monitoring of residual pesticide levels in farm runoffs, and the measurement of many ions, such as hexavalent chromium, chloride, bromide, bromate, fluoride, iodide, acetate, formate, phosphates, sulphates, nitrates, ammonia, sodium, lithium, magnesium, potassium and calcium, in potable waters and detection of EPA priority pollutants in potable waters.
Cecil Instruments has developed many analytical instruments, which can be used in a vast variety of analytical chemistry contexts, including water analysis since 1968.
For UV/Visible spectrophotometry, the company offers the versatile multilingual AquaQuest range of spectrophotometers, which are specially pre-programmed for water and effluent testing, as well as being suited for other laboratory applications.
The stand-alone AquaQuest spectrophotometers with optional PC control provide fast, convenient, easy and reliable
measurements. They can be used with a vast range of accessories, are user-programmable with large secured memories and are instantly expandable with powerful E-SEF software packages.
With an ever-increasing focus on the detection of multi-ranges of contaminants and pollutants, to higher sensitivities of detection, analytical chemists are placed under increasing pressures. Despite the wide capabilities of UV/Visible spectrophotometry, there are times when other techniques have to be used.
Cecil Instruments has a comprehensive range of modular high-pressure mixing HPLC with the Adept HPLC range. Modular low pressure mixing quaternary HPLC is offered via the Q-Adept HPLC range. The new Merit HPLC systems offer affordability and
incredible ease of use, especially for production/monitoring station settings.
The WaveQuest UV/Visible Ultra Fast Scanning HPLC Detector can be used for qualitative and quantitative analysis. It is up to 100 times more sensitive than a diode array detector, and detailed spectral scans and highly sensitive quantitative
analyses can be performed simultaneously in the same elution. WaveQuest eliminates the need for two different types of UV/Visible HPLC detector, saving time, money and other resources.
Cecil's IonQuest conductivity detector has very high sensitivities and exceptionally ultra-low drift. Combined with reliability and robustness, it brings a new force into the field of Ion Chromatography. The detector may be added to third party HPLC systems and forms the basis of the Cecil modular IonQuest ion chromatography systems.
With the additional options of AutoQuest autosampling, column heater/chillers, a wide range of detectors, post column reactors and customised configurations, EPA compliance is available.
