The SA-1000 scanning analyzer provides schools, municipalities and health departments with an easy-to-use, accurate test for lead and copper in potable water.

As a result, water utilities across the country retested for radium. Those that found radium contamination exceeding new EPA standards faced a three-year deadline to comply—by either removing the radium to improve the quality of the existing water supply or finding alternative water sources.
