Watts Water Technologies

The HF scientific HF-38Fluorimeter from Watts Water Technologies is an extremely sensitive, hand-held, ruggedized instrument designed for field-testing of toxic heavy metal contaminants in water supplies. It requires no special skill or knowledge of chemistry to operate, and is designed for use with HF heavy metal sensors. Through the use of DNA sensors, a reaction that fluoresces in the presence of a target contaminate substance, such as lead, is measured to determine the concentration of the target heavy metal. 978/688-1811; www.watts.com.
