Microtrace PDV - Portable Laboratory Metal Analyser

Measuring trace and heavy metals in water, soil and food has always been a vital part of modern environmental monitoring.  The Microtrace PDV offers excellent on-site characterisation of pollution hotspots and contamination sources.

Voltammetry offers an internationally accepted alternative to laboratory analysis or automatic samplers.

Modern Water’s tried and tested metal monitors have been market leaders for over twenty years. They provide an easy way to generate and store data, which allows real-time decision-making. Our PDV6000 ultra Analyser system has been upgraded to the New Microtrace PDV which offers a cost-effective monitoring solution for laboratory and field applications.  With the new tablet based android application, portability is increased.  The Analyser can also be connected to a computer with our powerful VAS software.

Microtrace PDV

The Microtrace PDV has been upgraded to allow much improved stand alone operation by utilising a new tablet computer app now included with the Analyser system.  The USB connector replaces the serial port.  The upgraded product can be run either on 4x 1.5V AA batteries, or from the mains using the standard 8-12V DC transformer. 

Key Features: 

  • A single instrument can be configred to measure up to 24 different metals. 
  • New tablet-based android app increases portability
  • Analyse in the lab or the field down to 0.5µg/L - below drinking water regulations for many target metals
  • Solid-state robust electrodes offers multi-year lifetimes and no hazardous elemental mercury. 
  • Higher sensitivity and less susceptible to interference than colorimetric methods.
  • Report generation capability with VAS software.
  • Correlation with laboratory methods (AAS, ICP-MS) but much lower capital and operating costs. 
  • 30 years of application development, validation studies and academic references.
  • Standalone field instrument - compact, light weight carrying case.
  • Speciation of selected metals.
  • AC or rechargeable battery for on-site use.
  • Immediate identification of problems.
  • Interactive sampling to locate and identify contamination sources.
  • Remediation decisions to be made onsite, saving time and increasing efficiency.
  • Larger number of sample points, improving site characterisation, cutting remediation costs.
