Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies Launches ENDETEC

The launch of ENDETEC, Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies’ (VWS) subsidiary and new global sensor platform, will be showcased at ACE10 in Chicago, June 20 to 24, 2010. During the event, ENDETEC will pre-launch its new state-of-the-art TECTA B16 rapid microbial detection instrument for E. coli and total coliform, as well as its “all-in-one” TECTA test cartridge, the most rapid detection method available on the market.

ENDETEC represents another milestone in VWS’ continued pledge to ensure
Safe Water Integrity, with its KAPTA line of multi-functional sensors and the
TECTA range of rapid microbial detection products and technologies.

“Globalization and the increasingly competitive world we live in force people to manage their time more effectively. Our customers are asking for more rapid tests, more automation and less subjective interpretation in their microbial detection program,” said David Dolphin, managing director at ENDETEC. “Our TECTATM B16 instrument and TECTATM “all-in-one” combined E. coli/total coliform test represent the biggest leap in technology advancement in our field in 20 years. With its real-time monitoring capabilities, our system provides early warning detection in case of an adverse event, providing drinking water operators all over the world with peace of mind and time to react.”

The province of Ontario, Canada, has recently approved the TECTA system as an accredited method for drinking water operations with E. coli and total coliform testing.
