ALZ Agro are a group of companies who specialise in bringing innovative solutions to the agro-industrial sectors. They have a number of clients who export fresh produce and are working with them to review and improve their processes. As part of the review ALZ Agro are exploring test methods for measuring disinfection in produce wash water.
ALZ Agro are using Kemio™ to measure chlorine dioxide and PAA in wash water. Fresh produce is washed with sanitiser to remove dirt, pesticide residues, and microorganisms responsible for quality loss and decay. It is critical to monitor the wash water to ensure the correct amount of sanitiser is present.
Kemio™ is a multiparameter testing platform making it ideal for users, such as ALZ Agro, who need to measure more than one disinfection type.
With readings to two decimal places, Kemio™ provides results of laboratory-grade accuracy. Kemio™ has been independently verified as the best method for testing produce wash water providing rapid and accurate test results.
ALZ Agro compared the test strip method to Kemio™ and found Kemio™ to deliver much higher levels of precision.
Luis Roberti, H2o control said “Kemio™ is a very practical piece of equipment delivering precise results.”
Unlike traditional test methods Kemio™ is extremely user friendly. With on-screen instructions. Kemio™ guides the user, minimising the chance of errors. Kemio™ requires no special training for operation and can be used by anyone straight out of the box. With results in 1 minute ALZ Agro have experienced time savings since using our Kemio test method.
Luis Roberti, H2o control said, “Compared to other test methods the time savings using Kemio are impressive, with Kemio I get water quality results in 1 minute.”
