The bbe Daphnia Toximeter observes daphnia online
Daphnia are established test organisms to indicate water quality. The bbe Daphnia Toximeter observes daphnia under the influence of a constantly running sample water. bbe developed the 24/7 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. The
instrument is also designed as an early warning system to rapidly detect the entire range of dissolved toxic compounds including pesticides, neurotoxins and warfare agents. Thus it is well suited to detect wilful (terrorist attacks) or negligent incidents (spills, accidents). The bbe Daphnia Toximeter can also be used for long-term monitoring for the ‚Äústrategic‚ÄĚ evaluation of water quality and as a valuable tool in hazard management. The bbe Daphnia Toximeter has been deployed worldwide now for over 10 years.
