Trace2o exhibits at World Water Forum
Monday 26th March 2012
Trace2o exhibited its range of field and laboratory
analytical equipment at the recent World Water Forum in Marseille. The show, an
important event in France’s environmental and scientific community, was opened
by the President of France, Nicholas Sarkozy.
The 6th World Water Forum was a truly global
event, and the Trace2o stand saw visitors from as far afield as China,
Mongolia, Argentina, Russia, Nicaragua and all across Africa.
The Metalyser HM1000 Portable was the centrepiece of the
Trace2o product range and generated very high levels of interest, demonstrating
the continued popularity of Trace2o’s flagship instrument.
The newly-released Metalyser HM3000 Field Pro proved
increasingly popular with the international audience at the exhibition. A
high-performance heavy metal field test kit with a built-in rugged Windows 7 tablet
PC, the HM3000 provides the more experienced analyst with enhanced capabilities. The instrument boasts
an expanded range of parameters, and lower limits of detection compared to the
The new Metalyser HM5000 Benchtop instrument was in action
on the stand, highlighting the advanced features for the laboratory user. The
HM5000 is capable of performing both stripping and cyclic voltammetry, with
options for linear sweep, differential pulse and square wave stripping
techniques. With built-in Bluetooth connectivity and nitrogen purging, the
HM5000 is the answer to low cost laboratory heavy metals analysis. The ‘plug
and play’ instrument eliminates the need for permanent gas lines and expensive dedicated
extraction equipment required for AAS and ICP.
The Paqua-Stat, our remote water quality monitoring station,
was also on display. Incredibly popular with a number of company directors and
high-level managers from around the world, the Paqua-Stat offers a unique
customisable system for remote monitoring of rivers and other water courses.
Trace2o is already planning to exhibit at the next World
Water Forum, scheduled for 2015 in the Republic of Korea.
