Chemcatcher® for metaldehyde
Metaldehyde is a potent molluscicide and is the active ingredient in most formulated slug pellets. Large quantities of pellets are used in some agricultural areas at specific times in the year to control infestations in crops. As a consequence, often high concentrations of metaldehyde can found in surface waters after significant rainfall events. Chemcatcher® can be used to measure metaldehyde in water.
Chemcatcher® for metals
The Water Framework Directive (WFD) was introduced to achieve protection and sustainable development of water resources in the European Union (EU) countries through established Environmental Quality Standards (EQS). The directive sets annual averages and maximum allowable concentrations for inland and other surface waters for the dissolved fraction of some trace metals including nickel (Ni), cadmium (Cd), lead (Pb), zinc (Zn) and mercury (Hg) which are potentially quite toxic to aquatic life.
Applications include the measurement cadmium, copper, lead, mercury, nickel and zinc.
