3 Steps to Faster, Highly Accurate Water Testing.

1. Insert Chemkey™ reagents

2. Dip into water sample

3. Read Your Results

No zeroing, no mixing, no shaking, no chemicals or vials to handle.

  • Perform up to four colorimetric and two probe-based measurements in parallel, and complete the entire test suite in 25% of the time. Complete more tests on site, get the results you need faster, and visit more sites in each shift.
  • Avoid manual steps that can introduce variability, even when performed by experienced testers. Automation and internal temperature control make the entire process consistent and repeatable, while applying the same processes and reagents as current Hach methods.
  • A single instrument combines colorimetric and probe testing, in a field kit that requires fewer bulky accessories. There are no powder pillows or glass vials to handle. All chemicals and processes are entirely contained inside the Chemkey.
