We are pleased to announce a new partnership with ANDalyze. We now have the ANDalyze AND1000 Fluorimeter in our rental inventory (click here to see the product page) and U.S. Environmental is an authorized distributor for ANDalyze meters and sensors.
The ANDalyze AND1000 fluorimeter is a handheld “instrument for field testing of heavy metal contaminants in water supplies that gives highly accurate readings in seconds and meets US EPA standards” Taking advantage of the exciting new technology of catalytic DNA/RNA, the instrument will significantly reduce test expenditures, complexity, and wait times experienced in traditional heavy metals water testing.
According the the product brochure:
The AND1000™ Fluorimeter uses an extremely sensitive measurement technique to determine the levels of heavy metal contaminants. ANDalyze’s proprietary Catalytic DNA sensors use a DNAzyme reaction that fluoresces in the presence of a target contaminant substance such as lead. The fluorescence of the reaction is measured to determine the concentration of the target heavy metal and is reported in parts per billion (ppb). Using the product to test for lead is a simple, quantitative test that allows for detection of lead at or below EPA standards for lead in drinking water. The test is performed by taking a 1 milliliter water sample, injecting it through the sensor, and into the AND1000 Fluorimeter. This sample is then automatically analyzed and reports results in less than one minute.
Currently, there are sensor kits available for the following with more coming soon:
