On-line monitoring for improved wastewater system management: applications of ultraviolet/visible spectroscopy
To ensure that the removal and treatment of our sewerage meets increasingly high standards, it is important to be able to monitor the water online both to provide timely information and also to establish changing patterns over days, weeks and seasons. In their article “On-line monitoring for improved wastewater system management: applications of ultraviolet/visible spectroscopy”, Rita Brito, Rita Ribeiro, Tatiana Arriaga, Catarina Leitão, Nìdia Lourenço, Filipa Ferreira and Helena Pinheiro demonstrate the value of on-line UV/vis spectroscopy for wastewater quality monitoring in decentralised wastewater treatment and for spectral on-line monitoring of key quality parameters at the inlet to wastewater treatment plants.
Hamamatsu Photonics has introduced a new MEMS spectrometer, the C12880MA
Hellma Analytics’ new UV/Vis/NIR optical immersion probe has been designed to meet the requirements for 3-A certification.
Ocean Optics has introduced a line of accessories for dynamic sampling
tecSaaS from tec5 is a modular platform based on UV/vis/NIR spectroscopy for implementing stand-alone sensors with embedded processing for industrial or mobile applications.
Automated detection of counterfeit drugs using multimodal spectroscopy and advanced web-based software platforms
In the Tony Davies Column, we learn about “Automated detection of counterfeit drugs using multimodal spectroscopy and advanced web-based software platforms”. With the increase in trafficking of counterfeit medicines and other products, there is a need for definitive results from an on-site analyser useable by customs officers. The German authorities have commissioned the development of a multi-modal, transportable inspection system, including intelligent data processing and evaluation, for fast spectroscopic recognition of illicit drugs and counterfeit medicines. This is described in the column.
Monitoring of catalytic reactions and catalyst preparation processes in liquid phase systems by combined in situ spectroscopic methods
In situ spectroscopic methods such as infrared, Raman and UV/vis spectroscopy are powerful tools to gain insight into reaction mechanisms and catalyst actions in homogeneously catalysed reactions. These methods and combinations of them offer great potential for the real-time monitoring of reactions in the liquid phase, for mechanistic studies as well as process control and kinetics.
Range of OEM spectrometers in UV, Vis and NIR versions, with resolutions down to 0.2 nm in the UV, 0.4 nm in the Vis and 0.6 nm in the NIR and a size of 61 × 64 × 19 mm. The series incorporates Ibsen’s high groove density master transmission gratings which are made from pure fused silica.
A special configuration of the V-700 series of UV/Vis/NIR spectrophotometers with a monochromator with automatically exchanged dual gratings: 1200 lines/mm for the UV/Vis; 600 lines/mm for the NIR. A PMT detector is provided for the UV/Vis and an InGaAs photodiode detector for the NIR. Both gratings and detectors are automatically exchanged within the user-selectable 800–900 nm range with higher resolution settings with enhanced sensitivity in the NIR.
Miniature spectrometer that provides high thermal stability and low unit-to-unit variation whilst maintaining flexibility and configurability. Fully configurable over the 190–1100 nm wavelength range. Features such as interchangeable slits, indicator LEDs and simpler device connectors are included. It has a footprint of 89 × 63 × 34 mm and weight of 265 g.
First Ocean Optics’ spectral device to use a solid-state optical encoder instead of a diffraction grating. Wavelength range is 380–700 nm and available in both OEM and standalone versions, it is suitable for simple absorbance, fluorescence and emissive colour measurements. A range of Spark accessories, including clip-on cuvette holders, diffusers and light sources is compatible with both versions.
Multi-purpose UV/vis spectrophotometer with wavelength scanning from 190 nm to 1100 nm along with intuitive operation, enhanced validation, maintenance and inspection functions. It has seven measurement modes including photometric, spectral, kinetics, DNA/protein and multi-component quantitation. USB flash drives can be connected to the instrument to transfer analysis data.
