Easychem TOX Early Warning

As a result of years of intensive research and development activities, EASYCHEM TOX Early Warning is an original direct reading on-line analyzer based on discrete analysis technology, for fully automated toxicity measurements of water samples using live cultures of luminescent bacteria.

EASYCHEM TOX Early Warning is a on-line automated platform equipped with color touchscreen LCD and housed in an industrial cabinet, comprising a refrigerated compartment, for bacteria, reagents, calibrants and controls. A mechanical arm for aspiration, transferring and dispensing of reagents and samples and a thermostated reaction plate with 80 positions are incorporated with a luminometer, integrated with an automated cuvette washing station.

Easychem TOX Early Warning: acute toxicity automatic measurement with luminescent bacteria

In order to enable an extended time of use of rehydrated cultures by up to ten days, proprietary bioluminescent bacteria were selected, grown, stabilized and lyophilized according to standard methods. Thus, for the required period, the microorganisms preserve a measurable bioluminescence signal and an unaltered sensitivity to different types of reference compounds defined in ISO and GB-T standards, such as zinc sulphate and mercury Chloride. The system is programmed to manage several bacterial vials in succession, thus enabling an high frequency measurement for one month or up to three months of unattended operation with lower measurement frequency.

Fully automated for unattended toxicity monitoring

Timing and frequency of analytical cycles, limits and parameters of quality controls are programmable by the operator and managed automatically. The continuous measurement of blanks and samples at pre-defined time intervals of about 40 seconds, results in the generation of inhibition kinetics, which allow to achieve, from the very beginning of the analysis, preliminary information on the level of sample contamination.  Following a toxicity alert, the system is able to react immediately by automatically replicating samples and performing control checks to confirm identified toxicity, significantly reducing the occurrence of false positives. 
EASYCHEM TOX Early Warning provides local data storage via seriale RS-232 with separate optional analog outputs 4-20 mA, remote data storage on a web server and data transmission via ftp, http and SMS. An immediate alert service is available in case of detected noncompliances. Finally, the management software allows the integration of different instrumentation, thus realizing a truly integrated monitoring station, combining chemical and toxicological on-line control of water samples.

Features and benefits

  • Full automated early warning acute toxicity detection, according to ISO and GB-T standards 
  • Fully automatic operation
  • Long autonomy; low maintenance, low operating cost
  • Very low reagents consumption; no preparation time; low disposable costs
  • Easy operation; plug in analyzer, no special training is required.

NPA Pro

Nutrients probe analyzer 

NPA Pro is submergible multiparametric in-situ probe for sequential automatic analysis of up to four nutrients or other chemical parameters in surface and sea water, based on μLFR* technology. The standard wet chemistries for nutrients analysis used in NPA Pro are the ones recommended by international standard:

  • NH3: Berthelot reaction
  • PO4: Molibdate, Ascorbic acid
  • NO3+NO2: Cd reduction NED, SAA
  • NO2: NED, SAA.

* Patented

New innovative chemistries are also available to make easier the management of the on site operations:

  • NH3: fluorimetric OPA method
  • NO3+NO2: UV photoreduction method exclusively licensed to Systea by Ifremer (French Research Institute for Exploitation of the Sea).

Other chemical parameters available are:

  • total phosphorous
  • total nitrogen (UV Reduction)
  • total dissolved iron
  • silicates 
  • sulphide.
 

The NPA Pro has been designed to be best integrated in coastal buoys. The two cylinders can be easily placed on the buoy’s body holes and then simply anchored with chains or hooks or snaphooks.It is made of two different PVC cylinders: 

  • the first one includes hydraulic and electronics components;
  • the second one includes reagents, calibrant, DI water and waste bag.

A single hydraulic connector with 10 tubing is used to connect the second cylinder to the first one. This multi-connector is provided with a valve to open it during functioning and to close it during transportation, to avoid reagent spillage.

Advanteges and benefits

  • Two cylinders are more convenient/easy to deploy: the electronic compartment is never removed;
  • The NPA Pro doesn't unbalances the buoy: the single body, if placed externally, can tilt the whole system that needs redistribution of buoyancy;
  • If needed, the Cd column, may be placed just above the electronic compartment;
  • The reagent compartment may be changed as a whole; its allowance is around 17 litres;
  • Long lasting reagents quantity, expected reagent changeover every 45/60 days.
