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.
     
    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 Water's portable fluorometer range includes the AlgaeChek™, AlgaeChek™ Ultra, BODChek™, PetroChek™ PAH, PetroChek™ BTEX.

    Modern Water’s range of AlgaeChek fluorometers provide a cost-effective solution to monitor the effects of organic pollution, and identify both potentially harmful cyanobacteria and turbidity. The AlgaeChek™ fluorometer is a single parameter instrument while AlgaeChek™ Ultra is a multiple parameteter portable fluorometer that can be configured to detect up to three parameters.
     
    The PetroChek™ range of fluorometers enables in-situ, real-time monitoring of crude and refined hydrocarbons with both fresh and marine water systems.
     
    The BODChek™ monitor detects fluorescent proteins that are inherent within sewage and slurry and provides an output in BOD equivalent units.
