Portable toxicity and bio-contaminant detection, DeltaTox® II is a simple, rapid, extremely responsive, portable water quality test system. Designed for acute toxicity screening and adenosine triphosphate (ATP) testing, DeltaTox® II uses bioluminescence technology to screen for contamination in instances of drinking water emergencies and chemical spills into water system. DeltaTox® II is the portable toxicity analyzer used with the MicroTox technology
The DeltaTox® II instrument has a combined detection capability that provides a very sensitive and rapid test to detect two of the most probable classes of agents, pathogens and toxic chemicals that may accidently or intentionally contaminate drinking water or wastewater. DeltaTox® II's acute toxicity and ATP detection capabilities make it the ideal instruments for rapidly and accurately assessing if the quality of drinking water from the source to the tap, has been affected by an incident.
DeltaTox® II is designed for use in any sample location throughout the water distribution or industrial waste water system. It is particularly suited to remote sites such as reservoirs, storage tanks, ocean or lake going vessels or in any hard to reach place.
CHEMICAL CONTAMINATION FO DRINKING WATER AND WASTEWATER
The DeltaTox® II test is fast, simple to conduct, uses small sample sizes and is very cost effective. Results correlate well with those from other toxicity bioassays such as fish, daphnia and shrimp. DeltaTox® II is used extensively in the measurement of toxicity of "fit for use" water and wastewtaer treatment effluent. It is also used as an early screnning tool for relative toxicity as part of a test battery.
DeltaTox® II test systems are uniquely suited for drinking water surveillance where supplies are monitored regularly and at strategic points. it can quickly reveal any changes in the level of toxicity of drinking water making it the ideal solution for major events. Microtox has been deployed at every Summer Olympics since Los Angeles in 1984.
In inudstrial and municipal watewater, DeltaTox® II helps assure compliance with NPDES toxicity limits, measures toxicity in influent streams and determines treatment efficiency.
MICROBIAL CONTAMINATION OF DRINKING WATER
DeltaTox® II can rapidly estimate the microbial concentration of a drinking water sample to a level of 100 cfu/mL without additional filtration or incubation steps. The data is available in minutes and is highly correlated with standard heterotrophic plate count methods. DeltaTox® II is extremely responsive and has been designed for use in a wide variety of applications where it is crucial to rapidly determine the biomass of a sample.
DeltaTox® II includes: Analyzer, 50 vials of SOLO reagent (bacteria), Microtox diluent, Microtox osmotic adjusting solution, 2 adjustable volume pipettes with wide bore tips (10-100 uL and 100-1000 uL), 400 disposable glass cuvettes, cuvette rack (holds 50), USB cable, software, carrying case and manual. Reagents must be shipped overnight and refrigerated or frozen upon arrival. Additional freight charges will apply for the overnight air freight.
