UNICEF Report on the Wagtech Arsenator
The UNICEF India Country office recently commissioned a report with the Shriram Institute for Industrial Research in Delhi to validate the performance of the Wagtech Digital Arsenator. UNICEF in India has a Long Tern Agreement (LTA) with the Shriram Institute to evaluate the performance of various products related to water quality monitoring and given the importance of arsenic contaminated drinking water in the region.

UNICEF India has already committed to buying large numbers of the Arsenator for the country and this report was the first step in the process of identifying and validating a cost-effective, field instrument that can measure arsenic in drinking water accurately down to ppb levels.




Wagtech International is a UK based exporter specialising in the manufacture and supply of scientific and laboratory equipment, with a focus on water quality & environmental testing.  


Key products include portable field water testing kits for testing if drinking water is safe. Wagtech also manufacture a unique range of low cost Arsenic testing equipment, including the Arsenator, the world's first digital field instrument , accurate down to ppb levels.


We count UNICEF, WHO and many of the international NGOs as our customers for this type of product and we have supplied this equipment all over the developing world. We are now one of the world's leading manufacturers for this kind of water testing equipment. 

It is ideally suited to portable testing in the field and in remote rural locations.   Wagtech are based in the UK, but we only export our products. We operate through a well established network of Regional Offices, Agents and Distributors.

In Africa alone we have five Wagtech regional offices, in Ethiopia, Ghana, Rwanda, Uganda and South Africa. In most other countries we have dedicated distributors who are on hand locally to provide technical advice, after sales support, reagents and consumables for the kits, and training.  

We have a new short-form catalogue - its called "The Definitive Guide to Portable Water Testing" - it contains all you would ever need to know about water testing and showcases the type of products we have.
