Sensors and Kits
Each disposable color-coded sensor is designed for a specific heavy metal test target. Kits provide sampling tubes, syringes and cuvettes. Sensors, supplies and fluorimeter are also sold separately. Call for ordering information. ANDalyze’s proprietary Catalytic DNA sensors use a DNAzyme reaction mechanism that fluoresces in the presence of a target contaminant substance such as lead. The fluorescence of the reaction is measured to determine the toxicity of the target heavy metal and is reported in parts per billion (ppb). Using the product to test for lead is a simple, quantitative test that allows for detection of lead at or below EPA standards for lead in drinking water. The test is performed by taking a 1 milliliter water sample, injecting it through the sensor housing, and into a culture tube. This sample is then automatically analyzed by the fluorimeter, and quantitative results are reported in less than one minute.
|Heavy Metal||Detectable Range||Part Number|
|Copper||40-200ppb (Low) &
|AND012 (Low) &
|Mercury||Pass/Fail at 2ppb
(up to 50ppb)

Kit with Fluorimeter
Our second generation fluorimeter, the AND1100 Fluorimeter enables field testing to be done in two steps in less than two minutes, eliminating or significantly reducing test expenditures, complexity and wait times experienced in traditional heavy metals water testing. It is a breakthrough in streamlining the water analysis and reporting processes and its powered by DNA.
The AND1100 Fluorimeter is a platform centric hand-held device for heavy metals testing for drinking water and industrial water supplies. It uses an extremely sensitive measurement technique to determine the toxicity levels of heavy metal contamination.
