Total Organic Carbon Analyzer in medical device industry Industry
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area: Protein Estimation, Quantification, Medical device cleaning studies

"Total Organic Carbon analyzer utilizes a catalytic oxidation combustion technique at high temperatures (the temperature raises up to 720 ºC). The CO2 generated by oxidation is measured with a Non-dispersive Infra-Red (NDIR) sensor. This equipment is the best choice equipment for the qualitative/quantitative analysis of water, protein, carbohydrate, hemoglobin etc, especially in the medical device industry. I am a satisfied user of this Shimadzu equipment."

Easy to use, quick results
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Detection of residues of cleaning agent

"The instrument was bought for the analysis of residues of cleaning agents for the control of pharmaceutical equipment. It was chosen as we used it before for the analysis of traces of plastics according to USP 661. Easy to use, easy to maintain (change of HCl, H3PO4, and verification of the catalysts) with one yearly maintenance, it provides quick and reliable results."

Great instrument, very helpful for environmental analysis.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Testing DOC in environmental water samples

"High quality and reproducible results. Relatively low daily/weekly maintenance. Can be complicated to troubleshoot as there are many different pathways/parts that can be the source of the problem."

Intuitive and informative
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Groundwater and Wastewater

"The TOC-L is quite intuitive. This helps for the wide span of users we have, from undergraduate researchers to PhDs. The instrument can be operated with or without a PC if benchspace is crucial. The manual is one of the most informative that I have come across. About 1/3 of it is explanation of operation and theory. Standard solution prep is also outlined well. It serves as a great reference. Shimadzu’s history with this instrument means that there are many service personnel well trained in its operation and repair."

Great product & service overall! Highly recommended.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Analyze produced water from unconventional drilling process

"The Shimadzu TOC-L unit in our university lab is fully equipped with autosampler and TNM-L for total water-borne nitrogen measurement. It didn't take long to learn how to use the instrument, then it become very easy to setup batch run unattended. Calibration curve hold values well, if you prepare sample relatively clean, TOC, TC, IC, TN measurements will have great reproducible results. The manual both PDF and hard copy are handy, well written on how to operate the instrument, how to do sample & standards prep. Shimadzu technician also take care of preventative maintenance once in a while."

Consisting of four models, including PC-controlled and standalone versions, the TOC-L uses Shimadzu’s 680° C combustion catalytic oxidation method to efficiently analyze all organic compounds. It features automatic sample acidification and sparging, as well as an automatic dilution function that reduces sample salinity, acidity and alkalinity. This significantly extends the use of catalysts and combustion tubes.
The TOC-L Series features variable syringe sizes when the sample volume is limited. High-precision mass flow controllers ensure uninterrupted carrier gas for accurate analysis. A zero-maintenance Peltier cooler used for maximum water vapor removal ensures accurate analysis. In addition, an on-board air purifier may eliminate the need for high-purity air during testing.

The optional salt kits permit 12 times more salt to be analyzed before maintenance is required. The ASI-L autosampler can use three different vial sizes for various applications, while the smaller OCT-L autosampler can use any vial size for up to 8 or 16 samples. TOC-L models can accept particulates up to 500 microns or 800 microns with the optional particulate kit. For larger particles, solids, soils and sludge, the SSM-5000 is the ideal solution. The TNM-L can be added for simultaneous TOC and Total Nitrogen analyses without increasing the size of the footprint.
