Modern Water has a wide variety of test kits which include the following product ranges: EnSys; EnviroGard®; RaPID Assay® and QuickChek.

The Ensys range are rapid field or laboratory colorimetric tests for the analysis of explosives in soil. The kits are based on a method developed by Dr. Thomas Jenkins at US Army Corps of Engineers - CRREL.

The RaPID Assay® range is a rapid field or laboratory enzyme immunoassay method for the analysis of soil and water for remediation, assessment and industrial testing. It uses an antibody coated magnetic particle technology to detect the analyte of concern. The method can be used to test for analytes such as pesticides, petroleums, PCB's and PCP.

EnviroGard® is a rapid field or laboratory immunoassay method for the analysis of soil and/or water for remediation assessment, and industrial testing. It uses an antobody coated test tube or plate technology to detect the analyte of concern. The method can be used to test for analytes such as pesticides, Microcystins and PCBs.  

The QuickChek SRB detection system is a rapid enzyme immunoassay method that detects sulphate reducing bacterial (SRB). The test employs purified antibodies to detect the enzyme adenosine-5'-phosphosulfonate (APS) reductase which is common to strains of SRB.

The specific compounds that we can detect by our test kit product range are identified in the table below.
