The Micro Inspector is a unique packing format which completely encases
a self-filling glass test ampoule in a protective plastic casing. Ampoule
snapping has been reduced to a simple push down. The Micro Inspector casing
also serves as the water sampling container and later as the incubation
vial for biologic tests. Each kit comes complete and ready to run the test.
The Micro Inspector is ideal for inexperienced test operators and for field or home testing.
|Biologic Water Testers
- Total Microbial Test Kit
A multipurpose microbial test that indicates presence/absence and activity
of any/all aerobic and facultative bacteria, fungi and yeast. This test
will show the presence of Coliform, E-coli, Cryptosporidium,
Campylobacter, Listeria and others, non-specifically.
- Coliform Test
Coliform is an EPA Primary Regulation for drinking water. The presence
of Coliform bacteria suggests that other bacteria, perhaps pathogens,
may be present.
- E-Coli Test
A bacteria that can cause mild to extreme illness, E-coli is a type
of Fecal Coliform. This test requires the use of UV (black) light to
Chemical Water Testers
- Ammonia Nitrogen Test
High ammonia levels are toxic to fish and aquatic invertebrates. Municipal water supplies sometimes have high levels of ammonia when it is to help
- Chloride Level
An EPA Secondary Regulation. Levels of Chloride in exceedence of the
federal standard, while not a known health detriment, can make drinking
water unpleasant tasting.
An EPA Primary Regulation, Chlorine is toxic and is used as a disinfectant for bacteria in water.
- Chromate Test
Hard water contributes to scale formation and excessive soap consumption.
- Iron Test
An EPA Secondary Regulation, the Iron recommended limit is based on
taste and appearance (staining) rather than a health hazard. Shallow
wells are prone to iron problems.
- WR Test
Phosphates serve as a nutrient for algae and high levels are responsible
for “Blooms” that clog outdoor streams and indoor plumbing.
- Zinc Test
An EPA Secondary Regulation, high Zinc levels can cause health problems,
especially to new and unborn children. Found in fertilizers, wastewater
effluents and household plumbing.
Using as a Sampler:
If the Micro Inspector is kept at a cool temperature,
biological growth will be delayed until the sample is brought to a proper
incubation temperature. This feature can be used in the field to take
a test sample at a site and run the test later at another location.
Also, if a positive result is observed, the test can be refrigerated
and sent to a lab for further analysis, biological or chemical.
