Enhanced chemiluminesence technology with an easy-to-use luminometer tests for toxicity in the field to assess trace contamination levels in water.

Through a reaction in the presence of a catalyst, a flash of light is produced (chemiluminescence) that can be measured with a luminometer. This method is applied to detect for the presence of heavy metals, poisons, and chemical warfare agents on site.

Quickly test for Pesticide and Nerve Agents using test strips for the presence of certain agents

At the heart of the Hach Eclox Water Test Kit is the Severn Trent Services Eclox luminometer for generic identification of the toxicity or purity of a water sample. The technique used by the Eclox luminometer is the same as that validated by the USEPA Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) program to yield reliable detection of heavy metals, poisons, and chemical warfare agents. Other tests for specific physical and chemical parameters are provided with the kit. Consumables—enough for 50 tests— are stable for up to two years at ambient temperatures.

Fast, in-the-field chlorine tests (0-3.4 mg/L) can be done using a color disc method.

Enhanced chemiluminescence technology is used for convenient toxicity screening in the field to assess trace contamination levels in water. It is based on the reaction of luminol and an oxidant in the presence of a catalyst enzyme—horseradish peroxidase (HRP). The reaction produces a flash of light (chemiluminescence). When an enhancer is added, the light output produced is steady and measurable. A low amount of power is needed by the meter, which has an easy-to-use interface.

Color testing is performed by the comparison of the sample to a color disc comparator.

The Hach Eclox Water Test Kit includes the EZ Arsenic method for simple and rapid arsenic testing. Reagents convert inorganic arsenic in water to arsine. Test strips that are specific for arsine are then allowed to react with the vapor. The color produced on the test strips is proportional to the arsenic content.

Both pH and Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) testing is done with Pocket Pro Testers which are handheld, waterproof, and battery operated

The pesticide test strips in the kit are designed to give a yes/no indication for the presence of cholinesterase inhibiting pesticides such as Organophosphates (OP), Thiophosphates, and Carbamates. It is based on the inhibition of the enzyme Acetylcholinesterase. In the absence of pesticides or nerve agents the strip turns blue. In the presence of pesticides or nerve agents the strip remains unchanged (white). This means that there is a fail-safe built into the strips, in that a malfunction of the strip will not give a false negative.
