Wagtech Water Technology Division (WTD) is a division of Palintest Ltd within the Halma plc group. Acquired from Wagtech International Ltd in 2011, Wagtech WTD continues to manufacture water quality testing instruments including the leading range of water quality test kits for which it is the preferred supplier to organisations such as UNICEF, World Health Organisation and the International NGO community. Wagtech is the market leader in the core markets of Africa, Central and Southern Asia, and parts of Latin America, and with the support of Palintest and Halma, continues to offer a distribution and support network covering over 110 countries worldwide.
Wagtech's ranges of portable water test kits provide laboratory solutions in the field for determining the quality of water. Such kits allow for the measurement and quantification of both physico-chemical and microbiological parameters, providing users with all the information required to assess the potability of a sample.
Other products include the unique Arsenic test kits designed to measure concentrations of Total As in parts-per-billion. Initially utilised by the WHO for systematic screening programmes in Bangladesh, the Wagtech Arsenator is now the leading product in its field and is supported by a range of alternative instruments designed for measuring arsenic and other toxic elements in water.
