Major product upgrade setting new standard in toxicity analysis


For immediate release

29 January 2019

Modern Water plc, the owner of world-leading technologies for water and wastewater treatment and for water quality monitoring, is pleased to introduce the Microtox LX. The Microtox LX is the next generation of rapid toxicity analyser for the laboratory, replacing the Microtox M500 analyser.

The Microtox LX Series combines Modern Water's proven Microtox M500 technology with the addition of several important upgrades:


·      The new automatic colour correction feature adjusts test results based on the sample's colour and turbidity eliminating the need for manual calculations.

·      The instrument has actively cooled reagent, read and sample wells that help to ensure more precise and consistent readings. 

·      The LX system includes a fully functioning, Windows® 10, touchscreen tablet with Microtox LX Software pre-installed. This eliminates the need for a desktop PC to use the Microtox analyser.  

·      The instrument's fully functional tablet is Wi-Fi and Bluetooth enabled allowing compatible accessories such as printers to be connected to the system. The tablet's 4 GB hard drive allows results to be stored for future reference.

·      In addition to a touch screen tablet, the Microtox LX includes a mouse, keyboard and stylus enabling greater ease of operating the LX software and inputting data.     

·      The instrument is now manufactured in a certified ISO 13485-quality system with 100% lot traceability. 



Doug Workman, President of Modern Water's Monitoring Division, commented as follows: "This is a ground-breaking product upgrade in toxicity analysis. The new Microtox LX bears all the hallmarks of Modern Water's 30-plus years of expertise in rapid toxicity technology."
