Modern Water’s Microtox CTM, which reduces the risk of missed toxicity events
A Continuous Toxicity Monitor capable of taking two measurements per second, compared to conventional on-line toxicity monitors that only take intermittent samples and provide only one test result in typically 15-30 minutes, has won a 2018 New Product Innovation Award.
The award for Modern Water’s Microtox® Continuous Toxicity Monitor (CTM) Series follows meticulous evaluation of a range of water quality monitors by internationally recognized market research firm Frost & Sullivan.
Based on its strong overall performance, the Microtox® CTM was recognised for how it reduces the risk of missed toxicity events by taking two measurements per second.
The Microtox® CTM continuously measures the chemical toxicity of a water source to give an instant indication of water health and is capable of detecting a broad range of toxic chemicals and compounds (over 2700 different chemicals).
Doug Workman, President of Modern Water’s Monitoring Division, commented:
“This Innovation Award from Frost & Sullivan’s extensive study is important recognition of the technological developments we’ve made in our advanced bioluminescence technology Platform. Our Microtox® CTM offers a fully autonomous operating cycle for monitoring water quality, yet only requires a low level of skill for both operation and maintenance”.
“The capability of the Microtox® Series in applications such drinking water and municipal waste water intake protection is bringing us continued success in Europe, North America, the EU and Asia”.
