Upcoming Webinar: Use of TOC Analysis for Cleaning Validation and Faster Turnaround of Production Equipment

On Wednesday, February 22, 2017, at 11:00 AM Eastern Standard Time.
Participants will come away with a roadmap for the conversion from existing HPLC methods to TOC methods and the method transfer of the analysis from the lab to the manufacturing floor. This will include guidance on conversion of cleaning validation limits and the cost benefits that can be realized. Click here to register.

Explore Organics Monitoring Applications for Process Optimization and Control

GE Analytical Instruments released a new Organics Monitoring Practical Guide and other new resources to help the process water industry manage their monitoring needs to best optimize processes, keep costs down, and control the water treatment needs.

New, Automating Your Lab Conductivity Measurements with Confidence, video released

This video look at Automation vs Manual Conductivity Measurement in the lab talks about productivity and confidence in your testing. Lab Manager, Dondra Biller talks about pharmaceutical companies need to reduce the time required to test water samples for conductivity in the laboratory. And she shows how "It’s easy to do away with older, time-consuming, manual testing and automate your conductivity testing by automating the measurement of both Stage 1 conductivity and total organic carbon (TOC) out of one “suitable”, dual-use conductivity and TOC vial." For more information about how to integrate automated conductivity and TOC testing in your lab, go to

Video: Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Uses TOC Monitoring on GMP Water Systems for Confidence

Dennis DiBiagio, Director of Manufacturing Services at PMRS Inc., uses GE Water & Process Technologies analytical instruments. In our newest video on You Tube, Dennis discusses the Sievers 500 RL On-Line Total Organic Carbon (TOC) Analyzer which is used to monitor organics in their most important GMP water. The 500 RL Analyzer, which also measures conductivity, is touted for its reliablility as well as ease of validation and maintenance for the pharmaceutical manufacturing and research company.

Simple is Smarter - TOC Analysis Change Video

Pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies who are thinking about installing an on-line total organic carbon analyzer are likely to use it for one of two things: to reduce laboratory sampling or, most often, as a diagnostic tool to control a high purity water system. GE Analytical Instruments understands how complex these projects can be. You want an instrument that not only includes the most robust analytical technology available, but one that is simple to implement.

We invite you to watch this new, 2-minute video to see why simple is a smarter here.

Overview of TOC Monitoring in Process Water Presentation

GE Analytical Instruments presents the benefits and methodolgy for industrial facilities using Total Organic Carbon (TOC) analysis for water processes. Included are specific applications and case studies using TOC Analyzers on industrial water processes (e.g. wastewater optimization, leak detection). A comparison of TOC technologies and recommendation for monitoring locations rounds out the program. Review the presentation by clicking here.

New Sterile Water Testing Requirements Effective August 1.

Pharmaceutical manufacturers of sterile water need be prepared for the new TOC requirements which went into effect August 1, 2013. These changes directly affect the validation and intended use of new or existing total organic carbon (TOC) analyzers used for laboratory analysis. Read more about the new requirements here.
