The Microtox® Model 500 (M500) Analyser system is the gold standard in toxicity analysis.  This laboratory-based, temperature-controlled, self-calibrating photometer measures acute toxicity and is ISO certified. 

Microtox® M500 is a biosensor-based measurement system that uses bioluminescence technology to monitor for either accidental or deliberate contamination of both water supplies and waste water. Heavy metals like Cadmium, Lead, Copper, Manganese, Iron, Selenium etc add to the toxicity levels in water.  Substances like fluoride, cyanide etc can also be detected using basic toxicity screening tests. With over 2,900 instruments sold worldwide, the Microtox® toxicity test system is the industry standard for rapid toxicity screening and analysis.  DeltaTox® II is the portable toxicity analyser used with the Microtox® technology.

Microtox® rapid toxicity detection is an in vitro test system that uses bioluminescent bacteria for the detection of toxicity in water and is used as a screening system to detect the relative toxicity of a sample. Applications include the testing of samples containing biological toxins, industrial effluent, industrial process waters, municipal effluent, drinking water eco toxicological samples, hazardous waste, soil, sediments, storm water and medical products for bio reactivity.
