Environmental & Water Testing

Water risk management

Water is the most important resource we have, and it is vitally important for all of us. So, in many countries it is the object of numerous environmental laws and regulations. This relates not only to drinking water but ultimately also for the whole water cycle, for example surface and ground water, process and waste water.


When it comes to water testing, the flexibility to use either instrumental analysis methods or field based systems can provide distinct advantages to users. Laboratory based systems are accurate and can be efficient with higher volume workflows, they can also be more costly and time-consuming. Commercially available rapid test kits can provide quicker results at a lower cost.


Anatoxin-a, BMAA, Cylindrospermopsin, Microcystins, Saxitoxins and Anabaenopeptins test kits form the core for cyanotoxins testing.
