TECTA-PDS - Pathogen Detection Systems
When regularly testing water quality you want to be certain you get the results back quickly, accurately and efficiently.
TECTA-PDS (Pathogen Detection Systems) develops fully automated, microbiology systems for performing on-site regulatory compliance testing for E. coli and Total Coliform bacteria in drinking water distribution system samples.
Our TECTA™ B16 (16 sample bays) and B4 (4 sample bays) are fully automated and can provide E. coli and Total Coliform results in 2-18 hours, depending on the level of contamination. With integrated networking capabilities, the TECTA™ analyzers will provide immediate notification and early warning of positive sample results as soon as they occur. Results can be forwarded to any device including computers, tablets and smart phones.
- Food and Beverage
- Recreational Water
- Military / Disaster Relief
- Institutions / Remote Locations
- 2 - 18 hour detection with automated email alerting capability
- On-site analysis means zero transport costs and delays
- Simple to use and no sample prep. Designed for those without microbiology experience to operate
- Eliminates risk – does not put staff in a position of interpreting subjective results
- No “call-outs” on evenings / weekends for staff to interpret and convey test results
- The traceable test report is date & time stamped for GLP purposes and can be e-mailed
- High turbidity does not affect the test
