How much sample water is required in each vial to be analyzed?
The amount of water sample required depends on the number of analysis replicates selected by the user.
For water samples with <4,000ppb TOC, 8mL of water sample is consumed when analyzing each sample from the vials loaded into the autosampler. In addition, the sample line forward-flush performed at the start of each new vial analyzed uses 5mL of the water sample in the vial. So, for example, if the autosampler was configured to analyze three samples from each vial, then analyzing each vial would consume:
(3 x 8mL) + 5mL = 29mL of water/vial
