Our LAR™ ToxAlarm™ toxicity analyzer continually monitors drinking and surface water for pollutants. Potential toxins in water are determined through the reaction of highly sensitive bacteria. The measurements follow at intervals of less than 5 minutes even after events of detecting toxicity.
With the ToxAlarm, measurements can be taken within 5-minute intervals. Thus, allowing enough time to introduce countermeasures after the occurrence of pollution. The ToxAlarm offers three warning levels, which can be individually set. ToxAlarm contains a bacteria culture, which constantly and independently produces biomass. This means that there are enough bacteria at all times for each new measurement. As every water sample is tested with a fresh number of bacteria, the risk of the fermenter being contaminated is ruled out.
The analyzer is extremely low in maintenance because the bacteria mass constantly proliferates on its own for months at a time. Its only requirement is the feeding of a nutritional solution every two weeks.
We are the TOC Leaders™ in high-temperature TOC, COD, BOD and Toxicity water analysis for maximum reliability, high-performance and fast response.
The ToxAlarm toximeter contains a bacteria culture, which constantly and independently produces Biomass. This means that there are always enough bacteria for each new measurement. Furthermore, the risk of the fermenter being contaminated is removed because every water sample is tested with a fresh number of bacteria.
The bacteria are extremely sensitive to a multitude of toxins. Through their reaction to the harmful substances in the water sample, toxicity can be reliably determined. For example, a reaction already starts at a cyanide concentration of less than 0.10 mg/liter.
Firstly, it is not necessary to purchase or externally cultivate test organisms, such as fish or daphnia. Secondly, the ToxAlarm is extremely low in maintenance because the bacteria mass constantly proliferates on its own.
