SFTS Editors note this is the second piece of
the blog series on low technology water quality
monitoring options. Scientific Food Testing
Services (SFTS), we may detect thousands of
chemicals in water, even at extremely low
concentrations. The ever growing list of tests
which are available can feel overwhelming, and
the majority of methods require state-of the art
lab facilities. Fortunately, we do not need to
test for everything! A much smaller and more
practical set of tests can provide a good sense
of chemical water quality for monitoring
purposes. The great news is that there are low
technology versions of those tests for situations
when budgets are limited.

Water analysis labs in Chennai test formats -
Typical low technology, portable, field test
methods for chemical water quality monitoring
fall into 3 categories Test strips These are
small, single use strips that change colour to
indicate the concentration of a specific
chemical. Depending upon the particular test,
the user activates the paper or plastic strip by
dipping it in the water sample and sliding it
around, or by holding the strip in a flow of
water. After waiting for a short period of
time, the user compares the test strip colour
with a colour chart to read the concentration of
the chemical. These kits are incredibly simple,
but they're less accurate than other methods,
particularly if users do not follow the
directions.

Color disk kits Color disk test kits are
available for a broad range of chemical tests.
The user then places the sample tube in a
little plastic viewing box. Water analysis
services in Chennai introduced the display box
contains a plastic disk with a colour gradient
printed on it. The user rotates the colour disk
to find the part that best matches the colour of
the sample, and after that reads the
concentration of the chemical from the disk.
Color disk kits typically have multiple steps
and frequently include prescribed wait times, so
they are a little more complicated and pricey,
but usually more accurate.

Hand held digital tools Lightweight and portable
digital meters, colorimeters, and photometers are
available for water testing. Water analysis
laboratories in Chennai provide the most accurate
results of those 3 testing methods, but they're
also less affordable and delicate than the
previous options. These instruments require
batteries and calibration. While digital
instruments are helpful to field technicians and
are an integral part of any continuous or remote
monitoring network, they're unlikely to be
appropriate for citizen science or crowdsourcing
water quality testing. Chemical water quality
parameters - After identifying various test
formats, the next question is What do we test
for? UNICEF recommends prioritizing fluoride,
arsenic, and nitrate for chemical monitoring.

Nevertheless, Chemical testing analytical lab
Chennai portable digital colorimeters are
frequently preferred because of concerns over
accuracy. Ackvo Caddisfly, a testing system,
lately described a colorimetric fluoride test
that may be read by a smartphone app. Arsenic
Portable field testing choices for arsenic are
limited, this contaminant is best measured in a
laboratory.
