Our trace metal product range includes the portable MicroTrace PDV and the two on-line, continuous systems: the OVA7100 and OVA7100 Dual Cell. The portable instrument is used effectively for spot sampling or as a cost effective lab instrument. The online OVAs can provide effective, realtime monitoring to prevent accidental illegal discharge or to protect sensitive treatment processes.

Our technology is robust and reliable, can be operated by technicians anywhere in the world and is relatively low maintenance. The portable, laboratory and online systems have a worldwide reputation for quality, reliability and ease of use, enabling customers to monitor pollutant levels, optimise their processes, minimise damage to the environment and protect the health of employees and communities at large.
