Easychem TOX Early Warning

Easychem TOX Early Warning is an on-line analyser for drinking water and environmental monitoring applications using dried bioluminescent bacteria, automatically rehydrated to ensure long term unattended operation down to 5 minutes frequency. UNi EN ISO 11348-3 and GB-T 15441 compliant operations minimize false alarms by hydraulics perfect cleaning, running measurement in duplicate and with positive controls. Alarms are available on Ethernet and by FTP to a remote server. Main barriers to extensively use acute toxicity early warning water analysers are the complexity to breed and manage living organisms in an automated device, minimizing false alarms and ensuring long term unattended operation. The use of up to 20 industrially prepared dried bacteria vials automatically regenerated and handled by the Easychem TOX Early Warning analyser coupled with the design based on discrete analytical technology overlaps the above limitations, allowing a very fast detection time in case of heavy water pollution, easy and reliable operations on field by water plants technicians and a low maintenance cost.
During the special awards session at the Association for the Science of Limnology & Oceanographic (ASLO) meeting in Honolulu, Hawaii, on Thursday 2 March 2017, SYSTEA was awarded as Winner for Best Overall Performance on both N and P of the Nutrients Sensor Challenge organized by Alliance of Coastal Technologies ! Awards were selected by an indipendent judging panel. The WIZ in-situ probe was evaluated as cost-effective, commercially available solution for measuring both nitrate and phosphate in an integrated package. It uses a wet chemistry approach to measure both nitrogen and phosphorus, and performed well in lab testing and across the three field deployments, including 72 days in Chesapeake Bay.
