Analytical services for water analysis at Åbo Akademi University We offer a range of different analyses for process waters, effluents, recipient waters, drinking water, and other water sources. The main analyses are described below. For price enquiries and more information on specific analyses, please contact any of the contact persons stated below or the coordinator for the water analysis services. For a larger entity of different analyses, please contact the coordinator for the water analysis services: Professor Stefan Willför, Johan Gadolin Process Chemistry Centre (Wood and Paper Chemistry), tel Industrial process waters and effluents (especially from the forest industry and plant biomass based biorefineries) TOC analysis (Total Organic Carbon) COD (Chemical Oxygen Demand) Extractives (GCFID, GCMS) o Fatty and resin acids o Sterols o Steryl esters and triglycerides o Lignans, stilbenes, flavonoids (polyphenols) o Other extractives Carbohydrates (GCFID) o Hemicelluloses, cellulose, starch, sugars Dissolved lignin/aromatics (UVVis) Molar mass determination of polymeric THF or watersoluble compounds (e.g. extractives, polymers, hemicelluloses, lignin) (HPSEC) Analysis of particles and bacteria in water suspensions and process waters (Flow cytometry) Total solid content, suspended solids, ash content, turbidity, charge density etc. In some cases, especially dissolved unsaturated and aromatic compounds can form oligomers and polymers. We have experience from a combination of analytical methods to study lso such compounds. We can also perform isolation and identification of unknown compounds with a combination of analytical methods (including MS, NMR, FTIR etc.). Water analysis of recipient waters (environmental water samples), reservation for detection limits TOC analysis (total organic carbon) Extractives (GCFID, GCMS) Carbohydrates (GCFID, HPSECMALLS) Dissolved lignin/aromatics (UVVis) Analysis of fish bile samples The method is used as an alternative/highsensitive method for monitoring of recipient waters. Polar effluent compounds can have biological concentration factors of more than due to enrichment in the fish bile (gall): Resin acids (GCFID, GCMS) Chlorophenolics (GCMS) LCMS methods in general and analyses of pharmaceuticals, hormones, pharmaceutical metabolites and similar compounds HPLCtriple quadrupolems in the MRM (multiplereactionmonitoring) mode (quantitative analysis of compounds at low concentrations in complex matrices) LCion trapms analyses (for identification) LCQTOFMS analyses (high resolution MS, for identification) We have established methodology for a number of pharmaceuticals and their metabolites and hormones that are listed below. If other, similar compounds are of interest and these are available in pure form for calibration we can usually adopt the methods to fit also such compounds. Enquire! Contact person: Professor Stefan Willför, Johan Gadolin Process Chemistry Centre (Wood and Paper Chemistry), tel Drinking water Total hardness (titration) ph (ph electrode) Electrolytic conductivity (conductivity meter) Potassium permanganate consumption (titration) Chloride (titration / ion selective electrode) Fluoride (ion selective electrode) F, Cl, NO 3, SO 4 2 (ion chromatography) Metals, organic elements, water content in solid samples A large number of metals (elements) in liquid samples can be determined with ICPOES (detection limit ca 10 ppb = 10 μg/l) and ICPMS (detection limit ca 1 ppt = 1 ng/l). Solid samples can be dissolved in an acid (dissolution in microwave oven) and analysed with ICPOES or ICPMS. Organic elements (C, H, N, S, O) can be determined with our elemental analyser. Water content ( 1 %) in different samples can be determined with coulometric KarlFisher titration. Contact person: Professor Johan Bobacka, Johan Gadolin Process Chemistry Centre (Analytical Chemistry), tel Cyanobacterial toxins Microcystins and cylindrospermopsin are cyanobacterial (bluegreen algal) toxins, which have been recognized as health hazards in drinking and bathing waters. We have solid experience of microcystin and cylindrospermopsin analyses in water samples, plankton material and other matrices by LCMS, HPLCDAD, and ELISA techniques. We cannot usually accept single samples but wish to become involved in longterm monitoring and research projects. We can also offer various consulting services in the field of cyanobacterial toxins.
