Description: The Hach 2100N Laboratory Turbidimeter is used to measure the turbidity from 0 to 4000 NTU (Nephelometric Turbidity Units).
Analytical Method: Our laboratory follows Standard Methods for the Examination of Water and Wastewater, 23rd Edition. Turbidity analysis is completed using 2130B nephlometric method. Samples do not require filtration and must be stored at 4ºC.
Sample submission: Water samples may be submitted to the water quality laboratory chemist for analysis.
Training: Student researchers and faculty who may be interested in training on how to operate the instrument and interpret the data, please contact the water quality laboratory to schedule training and time on the instrument. While the number of training hours may vary, depending on the student's knowledge and analytical skills, we require a minimum of two training hours prior to allowing the student to independently operate the instrument.
