Smarter digital water testing incorporating a smartphone

The new eXact® iDip® by Industrial Test Systems, Inc.

The new eXact® iDip® handheld photometer uses the simple 4 step Reagent Delivery Method, a quick yet safe and easy procedure for analysis. Simply select your test then push a button and dip an eXact® reagent strip into the built in 4 ml water sample cell for 20 seconds using a gentle back and forth motion. Discard the strip and read your results!  Our methodology uses fewer steps which limits source of errors in results. The iDip4 provides smooth, precise reagent dispersion into samples without leaving suspended solids in the sample vial that can adversely affect results, especially when testing cold water.
