Water Quality Analysis with qCell T Series

Real time monitoring of water contaminants

To provide clean and safe drinking water is a growing challenge, particularly in third world countries. Most cities and states have strict guidelines or monitoring and treating water allowing us freedom from concerns about water safety. Yet, even in developed countries, people are still in danger of becoming ill in restaurants, cruise ships, lakes and swimming pools from chemicals, pharmaceutical waste products or certain types of bacteria, such as E. coli and Legionella, that may contaminate water. Standard water disinfection methods such as sedimentation, filtration, and chemical or biological degradation are not always fully capable of destroying emerging contaminants. For these reasons, efficient, quick and preferably in-field means to regularly determine water quality are always desired.

3T analytik’s advanced sensor technologies -qCell T- is capable of measuring small amounts of contaminants by recording minute changes in the resonance behavior of a quartz sensor in real time. The sensor can be modified for the specific binding of particular contaminants of interest. Improvement of sensor sensitivity can be achieved by including nanoparticles. Implement the qCell T for:

  • detection of traces of contamination
  • in-field monitoring of water quality
  • in-line monitoring of water quality
