The single incubator version of the advanced Potalab kit, the Potatech features a complete set of digital instruments but remains lightweight and extremely portable for rural and remote water monitoring.


Previously called the ‘Basic Water Safety Planning Kit’, the Potatech is designed and supplied for the field monitoring aspect of the Joint Monitoring Programme (JMP). A favourite of field-based WASH professionals, the Potatech combines sophisticated digital instrumentation with high levels of portability to provide a detailed assessment of the microbiological, physical and chemical quality of a water supply:

  • Field microbiological analysis – single incubator constructed from thermally efficient materials to deliver maximum incubation cycles from the high capacity battery
  • Reliable physico-chemical analysis – includes the Photometer 7100, Turbimeter Plus and Pocket Sensors for pH and conductivity
  • Supplied with consumables and parts sufficient for processing/analysing 200 samples.
