Providing world-leading water technologies

Environmental

  • Modern Water is expert in the design, development and provision of analytical instruments and technologies for monitoring specific environmental contaminants in water, soil and industry.

    Our systems selectively identify contaminants such as PCB, pesticides, SRB, explosives, toxins, hydrocarbons.
     
    Modern Water has just launched its new SmartReader, a photometer that simplifies the analysis of its RaPID Assay and EnviroGard test kits. Click here to watch the video about our SmartReader.

  • 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. Learn more about our Quickcheck SRB test kit by clicking on the following link to our new SRB Test Kit video.

    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.

    Photometer For the RaPID Assay and EnviroGard test kit range SmartReader
  • Modern Water’s QuickChek™ Reader is used in combination with a number of specific immunoassay strip (lateral flow) tests.

    Typically these tests are either compared to a relevant color chart or provide indicative markings for a semi quantitative result range.
     
    Modern Water’s QuickChek™ Reader is a portable, robust and automated strip reading device. It is an extremely flexible device, capable of performing qualitative and semi-quantitative assays. With one push of a button the assay will be analyzed within seconds and results can then be stored within the device for download or printing.
     
    Modern Water has developed the QuickChek™ Atrazine strip test and is currently in the development stage for strip tests for additional compounds.

  • Modern Waters expertise in the development of immunoassay test kits extends to a specialty platform. In addition to the test kits offered for monitoring the familiar soil and water contaminants, Modern Water also offers technologies specific to tagged polymers and APS reductase for the analysis of SRB.

     The Dow Traceable Polymer Test Kit is a test for free polymer. The Optidose and Accent polymers have a tag permanently attached to a molecule. This tag allows immunoassay reagents in the Dow Traceable Polymer Kit to specifically identify the polymers at ppm concentrations.

    Modern Water’s QuickChek™ SRB works on the principle of immunoassay. This novel and proven technology overcomes many of the limitations of conventional culture and serial dilution methods that are frequently used to detect SRB.
