We currently have sensors for Lead (Pb), Copper (Cu), Uranium (U), Mercury (Hg), Zinc (Zn) and Cadmium (Cd). We plan to have Chromium (Cr) in 2013 and Arsenic (As) by early 2014.

The mercury sensor has a signal dependence to mercury which is sigmoidal instead of linear. Therefore, a 4 point calibration is required for accurate quantitative results which pose a challenge during on-site use. This sensor was not obtained by in vitro selection of DNA as is the case with our other sensors. All our future sensors will be in vitro selected and will be quantitative. We are also doing an in vitro selection to obtain a quantitative mercury sensor.

Lead (Pb) 2-100 ppb
Copper (Cu) High – 0.3 – 3 ppm
Copper (Cu) Low – 40 – 200 ppb
Uranium (U) > 2 – 60 ppb
Mercury (Hg) – This is a qualitative sensor not a quantitative sensor. (Detects mercury above 2 ppb)
Zinc (Zn) – 1 – 15 ppm
Cadmium (Cd) High – 0.1 – 1.0 ppm

We have demand for two different levels. The U.S. EPA – maximum contaminant level (MCL) for copper in drinking water is 1.3 ppm and therefore the 0.3 – 3 ppm range sensor works well for this market. However, there is demand to test for lower levels as well (waste water/ NPDES market) which is why we have a copper sensor that analyzes levels between 40 – 200 ppb.

Each specific sensor comes in quantities of 25 which can be used for Calibrations or Testings. Each sensor package includes everything needed to conduct a test including syringes, cuvettes etc. There are no additional costs other than the AND1000 Fluorimeter and sensors.

The sensors shelf life is 1 year (12 months) for the sensors. The shelf life of the product is limited by the liquid buffer supplied with the sensor which can be improved with refrigeration. We are working on making a dry buffer which will increase shelf life to 15+ months.

Accuracy differs depending on the metal. Please see analytical data sheet of each sensor for details. For example for the lead sensor, the accuracy is ±15% for Pb in the 30-100 ppb range and ±20% for Pb for less than 30 ppb.
