The carbo::lyser is a specialized instrument for measuring the organic carbon load of water, represented by parameters such as Chemical Oxygen Demand, Total Organic Carbon and Dissolved Organic Carbon.


The instrument simultaneously measures turbidity/solids concentration, and is pre-calibrated for a wide variety of specific applications ranging from pure water to industrial waste waters. The carbo::lyser accomplishes this by using spectrometry to derive these complex parameters. Unlike the spectro::lyser, however, the carbo::lyser does not give you access to the raw spectral fingerprint.

    • Pre-calibrated at factory for a variety of applications  just (Plug & Measure)
    • Multiparameter probe
    • Automatic cleaning using compressed air available
    • High long-term stability and minimal maintenance required when auto-cleaning options are used.
    • Automatic compensation for most cross-sensitivities

The carbo::lyser is suitable for use in a wide variety of applications, including:

    • Municipal drinking water
    • Surface water monitoring
    • Municipal WWTP influent
    • Municpal WWTP effluent
Tested Parameters
  • BOD (Biological Oxygen Demand)
  • COD (Chemical Oxygen Demand)
  • DOC (Dissolved Organic Carbon)
  • Pressure
  • Temperature
  • TOC (Total Organic Carbon)
  • TSS (Total Suspended Solids)
  • Turbidity
    • Measuring principle: UV-Vis spectrography
    • carbo::lyser  II monitors TSS & UV254 or TSS & COD or TSS & BOD or TSS & TOC or TSS & DOC
    • carbo::lyser III monitors TSS & UV254 & UV254t or TSS COD & BOD or Turbidity & TOC & DOC or TSS & COD & CODf
    • Detection ranges are application-dependent. Please refer to the full spec sheets for details.
