Isotopic Total Organic Carbon Solution Scoops Silver Prize at PITTCON(R)
The iTOC-CRDS, available from Picarro, is a compact, turnkey system that measures total organic carbon (TOC) as well as the carbon stable isotope ratio (delta-13C) for the TOC component. Primary applications are fast screening of foods, beverages and other agricultural products for source-appellation and/or signs of illicit adulteration/dilution/additives. The iTOC-CRDS is also targeted at research in carbon cycles, necessary for better understanding of cause and effects of rising greenhouse gases, as well as various forensic applications. This integrated system is built around Picarro’s unique WS-CRDS (wavelength scanned cavity ring down spectroscopy) analyzer technology integrated with OI Analytical’s TOC combustion/oxidation front-end.
