Microtox Azur M500 Toxicity Analyzer


Microtox utilizes a bioluminescent bacteria (Allivibrio fischeri) to determine the toxicity of a particular substance and/or substrate. The Microtox M500 is a laboratory-based photometer that measures acute toxicity. This analyzer is a temperature-controlled, self-calibrating biosensor measuring system that uses the bioluminescence of Allivibrio fischeri to determine the toxicity of contaminated water, or elutriates of contaminated soils and sediments.
