Did you know that bioluminescence, a naturally occurring phenomenon, is used to protect water supplies against toxic chemical spills?
Modern Water’s Microtox family of acute toxicity analyzers uses proprietary bioluminescent bacteria to screen for the presence of 2,700 toxic chemical and compounds. Toxic events can be detected in less than 15 minutes allowing operators to take immediate action. Modern Water has invented three different toxicity monitors that use bioluminescence; the Microtox® CTM a site-based, broad range continuous toxicity monitor; the Microtox® LX toxicity test system is the industry standard for laboratory-based rapid toxicity screening and analysis; and the Microtox® FX, a portable acute toxicity analyzer used with the Microtox® technology.
