Toximeter ToxAlarm™

ToxAlarm™ Toximeter for Drinking Water and Surface Water

LAR’s toxicity analyzer ToxAlarm™ continually monitors drinking and surface water for pollutants. Potential toxins in water are determined through the reaction of highly sensitive bacteria. The measurements follow at intervals of less than 5 minutes even after events of toxicity.

Features and Benefits

  • Measurement range: 0-100% Toxicity
  • Response time: 5-10 minutes (application dependent)
  • Continuous monitoring of toxicity
  • Self-regenerating bacteria within toxicity analyzer
  • High reproducability
  • Low operational costs
  • Low maintenance
  • No purchase of test organisms necessary
  • According to DIN EN ISO 9509:2006
Toximeter ToxAlarm

Applications

LAR’s toxicity analyzer is suitable for environmental protection for a variety of types of water:

  • Surface water monitoring
  • Drinking water protection
  • Ground water protection

Options

Using analyzer options, the measurement system is adaptable for every measurement challenge.

  • FlowSampler

Housings

For safe operation in hazardous areas, there are different protection housings available:

  • IP54 (Standard)

The bacteria are self-reproducing. In this case a huge advantage.

The toximeter ToxAlarm contains a bacteria culture, which constantly and independently produces Biomass. This means that there is always enough bacteria for each new measurement. Furthermore, the risk of the fermenter being contaminated is removed because every water sample is tested with a fresh amount of bacteria.

Robust toxicity analyzer. Sensitive test organisms.

The bacteria are extremely sensitive to a multitude of toxins. Through their reaction to the harmful substances in the water sample, toxicity can be reliably determined. For example, a reaction already starts at a cyanide concentration of less than 0.10 mg/litre.

Reduced maintenance. No further purchases necessary.

Firstly, it is not necessary to purchase or externally cultivate test organisms, such as fish or daphnia. Secondly, the toxicity analyzer (toximeter) ToxAlarm is extremely low in maintenance because the bacteria mass constantly proliferates on its own.
