Tracing with Fluorescent Dyes

Wilson Analytical’s instrumentation can be used to help identify the presence of fluorescent dyes in water flows and solvents with less than 1 ppb detection limit. Whether you are out in the field, in the lab or doing research, Wilson’s QuatBox, LabBox and the Open Platform System (OPS) provide sensitivity allowing for the low detection limits.

Measurements for petroleum and its conjugated aromatic compounds

Wilson’s Instrumentation is capable of detecting ppm levels of petroleum and its conjugated aromatic compounds in water. Measurements can be taken out in the field using Wilsons durable QuatBox, in a nearby lab using the Labbox or samples could be studied using the Open Platform System (OPS) that allows for various configurations. Testing may be conducted on waterways downstream of oil fields, tailings ponds, various oil field spills sites, etc.
