Biodiversity in streams is a sign of a healthy environment. Where water supplies are affected by contamination, the presence of different organisms will vary depending on their resistance to pollution. Measuring the numbers of these species is the basis of biotic indices identification and ballast water sampling.

Ballast water sampling and biotic index measurement identify organisms in your water to check the water quality and determine any purification treatment needed. Our worldwide sampling and testing laboratories help you to meet all national and international regulations for water cleanliness and minimize effluent and discharge from your industrial activities.
