Shimadzu TOC-VCSH with TN module

This unit can analyze aqueous samples for several forms of carbon (i.e. total C "TC", inorganic "IC", or non-purgeable organic "NPOC", also called "TOC"). The additional TN module allows the user to collect data on total dissolved nitrogen "TDN" on the same solution, if desired.

The Solid Sample Module (SSM) can process solid or slurry samples placed into small ceramic boats, and provide analysis of TC or IC.

We offer other researchers the opportunity to use this instrument, with a fee charged to cover the operating costs. Please send written request by email to the lab manager Mary Kay Amistadi and a copy to Prof. Jon Chorover. We will contact you as soon as possible to discuss further details
