Major product upgrade setting new standard in toxicity analysis

Modern Water plc, the owner of world-leading technologies for water and wastewater treatment and for water quality monitoring, is pleased to introduce the Microtox LX. The Microtox LX is the next generation of rapid toxicity analyser for the laboratory, replacing the Microtox M500 analyser.

The Microtox LX Series combines Modern Water’s proven Microtox M500 technology with the addition of several important upgrades:

  • The instrument has actively cooled reagent, read and sample wells that help to ensure more precise and consistent readings
  • The LX system includes a fully functioning, Windows 10, touchscreen tablet with Microtox LX Software pre-installed. This eliminates the need for a desktop PC to use the Microtox analyser.
