In-Situ Probe for Water Analysis
The Wiz Probe is a state of the art portable “in-situ” probe, which can automatically measure up to four chemical compounds in surface and sea water.
Its innovative design allows an easy handling and field deployment which can be performed by a single user.
The Wiz Probe allows, in its standard configuration, the detection of trace levels of the main four nutrients compounds:
nitrate + nitrite N-(NO3+NO2)
The probe analyzes these parameters automatically with well known spectrophotometric wet chemistries and an advanced fluorimetric method for ammonia measurement.
Many other analytical methods are available on request, including silicates, Total P, Total N, iron and other metals.
The Wiz Probe is the most advanced analytical probe for field applications:
A 1.5 ml micro Loop Flow Reactor (μLFR*) enables an extremely low consumption of reagents and calibrants
An exclusive multibeam compact, optic fibers based, colorimetric detector, coupled with a state of the art fluorimeter
A new compact cylindrical design allows the deployment as any conventional water quality monitoring probes available in the market
A new innovative “plug-in” and compact reagents container allows an immediate field reagents and calibration solutions changeover.
Results are directly provided in concentration units; all measured values are stored with date, time and sample O.D.; the same data are remotely available through a serial communication port, which allows the complete probe configuration and remote control using the external Windows® based Wiz Control Panel software.
The Wiz reagents container:
Reagents and calibrants flexible bags are placed inside the “plug-in” compact reagents container.
The bags are connected to the internal analytical reactor with an enhanced version of our exclusive fast hydraulic
10 lines multiconnector*, ensuring quick replacement in the field.
Reagents consumption is limited to about 30-60 microliters of each reagent per single analysis; the reagents container is designed to contain up to 500 ml of reagents and calibrant solution, to ensure at least 1000 automatic field analysis.
Auto-calibration is performed using concentrated standard solutions, contained in the same reagents container.
