Fast, Simple, Toxicity Evaluation

At the heart of the Hach Eclox Water Test Kit is the Severn Trent Services Eclox luminometer for generic identification of the toxicity or purity of a water sample. The technique used by the Eclox luminometer is the same as that validated by the USEPA Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) program to yield reliable detection of heavy metals, poisons, and chemical warfare agents on site. Other tests for specific physical and chemical parameters are provided with the kit. The consumables-enough for 50 tests- are stable for up to two years at ambient temperatures.

Eclox Chemiluminescence Technology

Enhanced chemiluminescence technology is used for convenient toxicity screening in the field to assess trace contamination levels in water. It is based on the reaction of luminol and an oxidant in the presence of a catalyst enzyme-horseradish peroxidase (HRP). The reaction produces a flash of light (chemiluminescence). When an enhancer is added, the light output produced is steady and measurable. A low amount of power is needed by the meter, which has an easy-to-use interface.

EZ Arsenic Test

The Hach Eclox Water Test Kit includes the EZ Arsenic method for simple and rapid arsenic testing. Reagents convert inorganic arsenic in water to arsine. Test strips that are specific for arsine are then allowed to react with the vapor. The color produced on the test strips is proportional to the arsenic content.

Pesticide/Nerve Agent Test

The pesticide test strips in the kit are designed to give a yes/no indication for the presence of cholinesterase inhibiting pesticides such as Organophosphates (OP), Thiophosphates, and Carbamates. It is based on the inhibition of the enzyme Acetylcholinesterase. In the absence of pesticides or nerve agents the strip turns blue. In the presence of pesticides or nerve agents the strip remains unchanged (white). This means that there is a fail-safe built into the strips, in that a malfunction of the strip will not give a false negative.

DPD Chlorine Test

The chlorine test in the Hach Eclox test kit is based on a DPD, color disc method. Reagents for both free chlorine and total chlorine tests are included (50 of each). DPD powder reagent is added to the sample and compared to the color comparator disc. Test range is 0 to 3.5 mg/L chlorine, with 0.1 mg/L increments.

Color Test

The APHA Platinum-Cobalt color test is based on comparison of the sample to a color disc comparator. The range of the test is 0 to 100 Pt-Co units.

Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) Test

A hand-held Pocket Pal TDS Tester is provided in the Hach Eclox test kit. It is waterproof, battery operated, and has a digital display. The unit is calibrated using 90 mg/L standard, included in the kit, and has a range of 10 to 1990 mg/L.

pH Test

pH can be quickly measured using the hand-held, battery operated, waterproof (IP67) Pocket Pal pH Tester. The unit is easily calibrated with the unit-dose Singlet pH buffers included in the kit.
