Total Organic Carbon (TOC)
TOC is a popular analytical technique in water quality testing, as seen in many official analytical methods today. The United States Pharmacopoeia (USP), European Pharmacopoeia (EP) and Japanese Pharmacopoeia (JP), recognizes TOC as a required test for purified water and water for injection (WFI).

TOC analyzers can measure:
TOC measurement involves:
- Total carbon (TC)
- Total organic carbon (TOC)
- Inorganic carbon (IC)
- Purgeable organic carbon (POC)
- Nonpurgeable organic carbon (NPOC)
- Oxidizing organic carbon in a sample
- Detecting and quantifying the oxidized carbon (CO2)
- Presenting the result in units of mass of carbon per volume of sample
NDIR Pressurization Overview
Pressurized detection, or static read, is a technique used for concentrating the CO2 produced by the oxidation of the sample. The technique can be used for both qualitative and quantitative analysis. In this section the basics of the pressurization technique will be described. Click for more on NDIR Pressurization.
“We are greatly satisfied with the TOC instruments provided by Teledyne Tekmar. This includes the instrument quality as well as the quality of the software. The instruments are well designed in regards to operation on a daily basis, service and preventive maintenance. Our customers appreciate the automatization of steps that are usually required to do by hand like the intellidilution and the auto calibration function. Teledyne Tekmar keeps a close look on the requirements on the different industries and applications and provides beside the instrument and its components valuable tools like application notes, validation support manuals, cleaning validation support manuals etc. When contacting customer support, we promptly get information and help. Orders will immediately being handled and will be sent out quickly. Kind regards,Mit freundlichem Gruß, Christoph Braun ANTEC GmbH”
