Modern Water has a wide variety of test kits which include the following product ranges: EnSysTM; EnviroGard®; RaPID Assay® and QuickChekTM.

EnviroGard® is a rapid field or laboratory immunoassay method for the analysis of soil and/or water for remediation assessment, and industrial testing. It uses an antibody coated test tube or plate technology to detect the analyte of concern. The method can be used to test for analytes such as pesticides, Microcystins and PCBs.

Our innovative Quickcheck SRB test kit complies with ASTM D8243-19 and is easy to use, requires no expensive equipment and provides faster and more reliable results when compared to conventional culture tests. In an independent study done by an external lab, the QuickChek SRB performed as good as or better than both the well-known culture method and the more costly qPCR methods.

Modern Water has also launched a photometer called the SmartReader to support its RaPID Assay and EnviroGard range of test kits. Click here to watch the video about our SmartReader.

The Ensys™ range of test kits are rapid field or laboratory colorimetric tests for the analysis of explosives in soil.

The method can be used to test for analytes such as pesticides, petroleums, and PCBs.

The QuickChek™ SRB detection system is a rapid enzyme immunoassay method that detects sulfate reducing bacteria (SRB). The test employs purified antibodies to detect the enzyme adenosine-5′-phosphosulfonate (APS) reductase which is common to all strains of SRB.

The RaPID Assay® range is a rapid field or laboratory enzyme immunoassay method for the analysis of soil and water for remediation, assessment and industrial testing. It uses an antibody coated magnetic particle technology to detect the analyte of concern. The method can be used to test for analytes such as pesticides, petroleum hydrocarbons, PCBs and PCP.
