The QuickTOCtrace is an online system working on the basis of the traditional continuous flow process with conductivity detection. UV oxidation using the “direct surface” process guarantees highest precision thanks to highly sensitive conductivity sensors. In differential conductivity measurement, the initial conductivity before oxidation, as well as the conductivity after the treatment of the sample, are measured. The TOC concentration results from the difference obtained from subtracting the first, lower conductivity measurement from the second, higher one. The QuickTOCtrace can thus reliably determine the parameter TOC in a measuring range of 0.1 – 1,000 ppb.
The verification of the TOC result is carried out using periodical implementation of the system suitability test and complies with the standards prescribed by the US pharmacopoeia, as well as the European pharma regulation (European pharmacopoeia). QuickTOCtrace’s software enables a quick and simple initiation of the SST at any time and offers automatic data evaluation as well as automatic implementation of the testing procedure.
The automized functions of the SST allow a high standard of safety and minimized operation costs in controlling the water.
