Toxicity Monitoring with Luminiscence Bacteria
The iTOXcontrol is a toxicity monitor and is ideally used to give additional information on water quality. This completely automated Biomonitoring System uses freshly cultivated light emitting bacteria (Vibrio fischeri) as a biological sensor. The luminescence is measured before and after exposure to calculate the inhibition in %.
The luminescent bacteria test is an automated version of the ISO 11348 allowing continuous monitoring of rivers, drinking water production or wastewater treatment plants. The luminescent bacteria, used in the TOXcontrol BioMonitor, have been successfully used for a variety of environmental, process monitoring and educational applications.
