Thermo Sells Environmental Analyzer to Canadian Lab

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — Thermo Fisher Scientific has sold a benchtop HiperTOC environmental analyzer to an undisclosed Canadian analytical lab, Thermo said yesterday.
 
Thermo said the product detects the presence of organic compounds at a presence of .04 parts per million, which go beyond the US Environmental Protection Agency’s standards concerning the presence of organic compounds in drinking water.
 
The HiperTOC runs four different oxidation techniques, including high-temperature oxidation, UV/persulfate, UV ultra pure, and an ozone promoted method.
 
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
