Analytical Instruments & Technologies for Monitoring Toxicity, Trace Metals & Environmental Contaminants in Water

Toxicity Monitoring

Microtox LX



Microtox® LX analyzer is a laboratory-based, temperature-controlled, self-calibrating photometer that measures acute toxicity.

Microtox® rapid toxicity detection is an in vitro test system that uses bioluminescent for the detection of toxicity and is used as a screening system to detect the relative toxicity of a sample.

Applications include the testing of samples containing biological toxins, industrial effluent, industrial process waters, municipal effluent, drinking water, ecotoxicological samples, hazardous waste, soil, sediments, storm water and chemical, pharmaceutical and medical products for bioactivity.


Key features:

  • Increased Sensitivity - The use of a new proprietary, fully dynamic photomultiplier tube increases the sensitivity of the instrument
  • Fast, Reliable and Reproducible Results - Results available in as little as 15 minutes after initial sample preparation
  • The instrument's new automatic color correction feature adjusts test results based on the sample's color and turbidity
  • Actively cooled sample and read wells enable more precise and consistent readings
  • Cost effective - A low cost toxicity test that requires small sample volumes.
  • Manufactured in a certified ISO 13485 quality system with 100% lot traceability
