Bio-Metox Pack

The useful pack to measure your water’s metal content

The measurement of metals using specific bacterial probes sheds a new light on metal contamination issues: cheaper and less constraining than the classic methods, the Bio-Metox method also takes into account their actual bio-availability.

The measurement of metals using specific bacterial probes sheds a new light on metal contamination issues: cheaper and less constraining than the classic methods, the Bio-Metox method also takes into account their actual bio-availability.

The measurement of metals using specific bacterial probes provides new insights into metal contamination issues. Using an approach combining a battery of differential-sensitivity bioprobes and neural network processing, the content in five metals (copper, lead, zinc, zinc, arsenic and mercury) are semi-quantified simultaneously in concentration ranges.
This method takes full account of the respective bioavailability of the metals and their interactions in solution, unlike conventional analytical measurements.
In this respect, the sensitivity of our bacterial probes to mercury is much higher (detection limit 50pm = 10ng/L) than current physical-chemical methods. To complement these innovative biological approaches, the Metox index is measured in parallel according to the TEF Metox 1975 JO 92 method.
