Monitoring & Testing to Ensure Safe Drinking Water
The World Health Organization (WHO) provides an authoritative document for setting national regulations and standards for water safety in support of public health. A total of 45 microbiological and chemical parameters must be monitored and tested regularly according to the WHO's guidelines for drinking water. Drinking water comes from a variety of sources, including public water systems, private wells, or bottled water. It is important to know where your drinking water comes from, how it’s been treated, and if it’s safe to drink.
Wet Chemistry & Continuous Flow Analysis
KPM Analytics offers automated analytical equipment and reagents to verify water physicochemical quality and provide documentation that testing has been carried out using the required guidelines and methods.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the U.S. has legal limits on at least 90 contaminants in drinking water, and they have rules about water-testing schedules and methods. The European Union (EU) has strict rules as well under its Water Framework Directive (WFD) and Drinking Water Directive (DWD), and member States are not allowed to set lower standards than its guidance. They must also follow the methods of analysis in accordance with ENISO/IEC-17025 or other internationally accepted equivalent standards. Depending on where you live, there may be even more regulations, and this is essential for protecting our health and keeping water systems clean and safe.
Using proven wet chemistry analysis methods, you can perform fast and accurate testing of critical parameters and ensure safe consumption. You can automate your analytical processes with the AMS Alliance FUTURA, KPM’s Segmented Flow Analysis platform, or with the AMS Alliance SmartChem®, KPM’s Discrete Wet Chemistry Analyzer, and our range of dedicated ready to use reagents for the methods listed below.
