What if bathing water quality management was an active process, driven by real-time data? What if bathing water users could be protected by wider health impact monitoring information? What if pollution incidents could be identified as they occur?
SirenBW is the new concept from Palintest, delivering real-time pathogen risk information to support complete bathing water quality monitoring and user protection.
The patented SirenBW method detects the quantity of lipopolysaccharides (LPS), the key cause of inflammatory and immune response present within Gram-negative pathogens such as E. coli, pseudomonas and campylobacter. Through the analysis of this health risk indicator, monitoring teams can generate real-time data to protect bathing water users.
Unlike traditional faecal indicator approaches, the SirenBW method generates results in around 30 minutes and is designed for testing at the point of use.
With SirenBW the gap between sampling and action disappears, protecting bathing water users by identifying problems in real-time and reducing the exposure to poor bathing water quality..
SirenBW increases management of bathing water quality by supplementing current indicator compliance sampling and improving predictive modelling of bathing waters. By removing “blind” sampling we can locate the sources and causes of pollution, and take meaningful and cost-effective steps to protect and improve the environment.
We are working with a number of key partners to evaluate our Siren kits. If you want to drive the change to improve bathing water standards, contact our team to get involved.
Currently the contact form is under maintenance, please use the below contact details to speak to your local Palintest branch where a member of the team will be happy to assist.

In summer, Product Manager for our Wagtech product range, Shaurya Sheoran, visited a WaterAid field site in India to discuss the current challenges on water quality faced by rural parts of India and how our kits are helping them achieve their mission of providing safe drinking water.

Last month Product Manager for our Wagtech range Shaurya Sheoran and Technical Support Specialist Jessica McKenna provided some water quality training sessions as part of the RedR/ Cranfield University borehole drilling course. The event is a week-long training course covering well siting, drilling supervision and water quality sampling.

Last month we closed our offices globally for one day to allow our employees some well-deserved rest. Our designated wellbeing day took place on 7th October 2022 and was day off work for all Palintest employees to relax and recharge in whatever way they felt appropriate. We have received some great stories of how our employees chose to spend this extra time away from the business to relax and focus on their physical, mental, and emotional state.
