Aqua Science Products
Aqua Science bioluminescent reagents, BioLight Multi and Single and consumables, can be used with Aqua Science analysers and the Microtox Model 500, Microtox LX, Microtox FX and DeltaTox as well as other luminometers in the market. If you are currently using Microtox Acute or SOLO, JWII have stock of the Aqua Science equivalent reagent and required consumables.
JWII offer a high-quality bioluminescent reagent from the same Aliivibrio fischeri bacterium as the reagent previously offered under the Microtox brand. BioLight reagents are manufactured by a team of scientists with over 30 years of experience in the manufacture of bioluminescent reagents. It is our goal to provide the Australian market with quality reagents, consumables, and instruments to keep ecotoxicity testing ongoing for years to come.

BioLight system overview
The BioLight Toxy, when combined with BioLight Reagents and Consumables, introduces a swift method for toxicity testing. It stands out as the latest dual-function instrument for bioluminescent analysis. This innovation is the outcome of collaborating with ecotoxicity experts to cater to global toxicity users’ requirements. The device can perform tests both in the field and in labs, reading light variations before and after potential toxic sample exposure.
Portable testing protocols
In its portable form, the BioLight Toxy has two primary protocols: the Screening Test and the Basic Test. It’s essential to keep the reagent frozen as the portable mode lacks temperature control. The device can read the Single reagent initially to establish a baseline and then after sample exposure. Results are typically available in 20 minutes.
Benchtop and Laboratory uses
The bench-top version of BioLight Toxy boasts a cooled reading and reagent well, with an option to add an extra cooling block. Multiple protocols are available, with results typically available in about 45 minutes including 15 minutes for the equilibrium of the reagent wells.
On Board Storage and Wifi Connectivity
The device offers 16 GB of on board storage, optional USB/Wifi connectivity, SCADA connectivity enabling connection to a wide range of PLC’s and client management systems.
Intuitive System Software
The Toxy features a custom PLC software interface onboard. Users can select from pre-programmed toxicity tests or customize their own. The software is user-friendly and supports multiple languages.
Multiple testing protocols
The device supports various testing protocols, including EC50 Tests for different toxicity levels, Effect Tests, Comparison Tests, and more. It complies with ISO 11348-3 standards and can be used for a range of samples, including wastewater, fresh water, and solid samples.
