Palintest paired up with CEBAS CSIC in Spain, Campden BRI in the UK, and SGS in China to get external validation of the sensor products against laboratory methods such as titration and HPLC.
In the fresh produce washing industry, the best way to ensure that the produce is free of pathogens is to monitor the disinfectant level of the water. Accuracy describes how close to the true value your measurement method result is. An inaccurate measurement result will give you a false view of the disinfectant level in the wash water. Take a look at our short support document which explains the difference between accuracy and precision.
Each method was used to measure produce wash water with differing disinfectant levels, and the average results for each method compared to ensure that the sensor methodology was comparable to the lab methods, and had improved accuracy and precision compared to the drop count method.
Across all concentrations of disinfectants, Palintest’s sensor technology produces measurements with a similar degree of accuracy and precision to the laboratory methods.
Accuracy in disinfectant measurement is key to keeping customers safe and managing cost efficiencies

The Palintest USA team has been in Canada this week training 250 people to use our Kemio Heavy Metals to identify drinking water contaminated with lead in local schools. Kemio will detect lead contamination in 3 minutes, enabling the school to close off any affected water supply.
