DaphTox II

Daphnia Toximeter II from bbe Moldaenke

Sensitive detection of toxic substances in water via computer-assisted digital image analysis

The bbe DaphTox II observes daphnids, commonly known as “water fleas”, under the influence of constantly running sample water. Based on the Extended Dynamic Daphnia Test, bbe developed a new sensitive method to detect hazardous compounds in water from rivers (source-water protection), plants, distribution systems and production drains to preserve human health and to monitor water.

Algae Toximeter II

Algae Toximeter from bbe Moldaenke

An instrument for the fast and sensitive detection of toxic substances in water

The bbe Algae Toximeter continuously monitors water for the presence of toxic substances. Standardized algae are mixed with the sample water and the instrument detects the photosynthetic activity of the algae. Damage to the algae, caused e.g. by herbicides, causes a reduction in algae activity and activates an alarm above a pre-defined threshold.

Fish Toximeter

Fish Toximeter from bbe Moldaenke

An instrument for chlorophyll and photosynthetic activity measurement in the laboratory

The bbe Fish Toximeter observes the behavior of fish in a tank under the influence of a stream of “sample” water with the aid of a camera and continuous computer-assisted image analysis. This uncomplicated but highly sensitive instrument is designed to detect toxic substances in e.g. rivers, reservoirs, water supply systems, water treatment plant intakes and sewers.

ToxProtect 64

Tox Protect 64 from bbe Moldaenke

Quick and reliable detection of toxins in the water supply

TheToxProtect 64 is an automated monitoring system to protect a drinking water supply from accidental or malicious contamination due to harmful substances. The characteristic of these threats is a relatively high concentration of dangerous substances that occurs suddenly. Such situations must be detected quickly and safely. False alarms are reduced to an absolute minimum using the ToxProtect 64. This improves the trust of the operators and reduces unnecessary expenditure.
