Application Note: Ensuring safe drinking water
5 September 2023

In this application note, KPM Analytics highlights the techniques required to ensure safe drinking water. The World Health Organization's (WHO) guidelines for water safety provide authoritative standards for ensuring public health through safe drinking water. These guidelines necessitate regular monitoring and testing of 45 microbiological and chemical parameters. Inorganic chemistry testing involves techniques such as titration, ion-selective electrodes, atomic absorption, ICP-OES, UV-Vis spectrophotometry, and ion chromatography. These techniques are employed to assess the presence of inorganic analytes crucial for determining the safety of drinking water.
