FIELD-READY ELECTROCHEMICAL DETECTOR®
ARSENIC ANALYSIS SYSTEM
Understanding chemical concentration in real-time is difficult. Sites must be driven to, analytical labs introduce delays, and field kits are difficult to use or lack data integrity. FRED is designed to be robust, fast, and easy to use in a variety of process waters. FRED can decrease operational cost, remove rework from travelling to the site more often than required, and provide needed information to process engineers without the hassle of expensive custom installation.
Arsenic contamination in groundwater is a serious health concern. Being is known to cause many health problems such as vascular diseases and cancers, it is essential that arsenic levels be managed in groundwater wells, therefore monitoring is a primary target in utilities and environmental management.
RAPID & PORTABLE ARSENIC DETECTION IN VARIOUS WATER SAMPLES
The system is designed for ground and surface water arsenic measurement using a novel biological based method of detection. Non-hazardous bacteria are stored in a sealed cartridge. The cartridge is filled with a water sample at the site without any sample pre-treatment. Detection of arsenic at trace levels is achieved after 1 hour. Data is transmitted via wireless (or USB) for further analysis. The product is an ideal platform for rapid analysis of sample sites.

WAIT FOR YOUR CONCENTRATION TO BE TRANSMITTED
FRED has been trialled with several USA based utilities. The primary use case involved the validation of the instrument with groundwater wells actively above the maximum contaminant limit of 10 ug/L arsenic. Our data is compared to standard EPA approved compliance methods (i.e. ICP-MS analysis) to demonstrate specificity and accuracy. For more information, contact FREDsense for case study information.
