Strathkelvin Instruments Ltd. new Strathtox respirometer is taken on by Canadian Distributor – Aquatic Life.

The recent launch of StrathtoxTM at WEFTEC in New Orleans saw huge interest in Strathkelvin's latest innovation in precision respirometry. A large number of global blue chip companies posted very early interest in the new Respirometer, and a number of notable distributors from across the world also showed keen interest in taking on StrathtoxTM, and benefiting from it's unique range of hardware and software features. However the first to seal the distribution rights for the new respirometer was Aquatic Life who occupy a premier position in the Canadian market place for top class wastewater treatment consultancy and products.

    Ken Diamond, Sales Manager for Strathkelvin, said: “The level of interest during WEFTEC confirmed that our decision to develop of a fully integrated desktop precision respirometer was correct, and the aspiration shown by Aquatic Life of Canada to distribute StrathtoxTM typified the commercial interest shown by Distributors and End-user clients alike.

    We were extremely impressed by Aquatic Life’s quick recognition of the benefits end-users can rapidly achieve, and their marketing in Canada is aimed at the same markets that we are focussed upon in the UK in a direct manner.

    We are already experiencing keen interest from companies dealing with unknown liquid wastes, water treatment plant operators who wish to avoid acute and chronic toxic effects, and chemical manufacturers keen to demonstrate their environmental compliance. StrathtoxTM offers critical features that will assist these companies in taking the guesswork out of their wastewater treatment processes.

    A truly innovative product, StrathtoxTM, will soon become the standard against which respirometry in a wide range application areas will be measured against, and we look forward to helping our clients achieve solutions that provide them with a direct commercial benefit.”
