Portable testing laboratory designed to assess the suitability of drinking water on-site, even in remote areas.

The kit of choice for NGO's and water technicians implementing rural water and sanitation programmes and who only have access to limited funds but still wish to conduct an accurate assessment of the full range of drinking water quality parameters in the field.

This kit is capable of carrying out all the same tests as the Potalab, however the Potakit features less sophisticated instrumentation which in many cases makes the Potakit a more attractive and cost-effective choice.
