The U.S. EPA has issued ATP Case No. N07-0003 in 40 CFR part 136.3 for the use of Nitrate Reductase method for nitrate/nitrite analysis for CWA reporting. Contact your state agency or regional ATP coordinator for approval to stop using cadmium now.
We are a biotechnology company that develops and manufactures analytical grade enzymes. Our Nitrate Reductase enzyme is used in laboratories all over the world, including the laboratories of USGS, The Chesapeake Bay Foundation, and more to quantify nitrate in complex samples.
In addition to laboratory applications, we offer simplified nitrate test kits to measure the amount of nitrate in water, soil, plant samples, and animal feed at home or in the field. Nitrate Reductase provides accurate, reliable, cost-effective, and safe nitrate quantitation for individuals and the environment.
We are currently researching and developing other enzymes for analytical chemistry applications to detect phosphate, total nitrogen, total phosphorus, glycerol, alcohol and galactose in complex mixtures. Enzymes are protein catalysts that speed up the myriad reactions that make life possible. Use enzymes in place of toxic chemicals for analyte quantitation!
We Currently Offer Nitrate Reductase for Various Applications:
Simplified nitrate test kits for users with little to no lab training - for water, soil, plants, and animal feed
Reagent packs for automated liquid handlers, discrete analyzers, and high throughput labs
Reagents and test kits for laboratories with spectrophotometers and other neccesary lab equipment
Enzyme-based analytical chemistry has real benefits:
Selectivity – Enzymes are able to find “targets” in complex mixtures, reducing sample prep time
Sensitivity – Enzymes offer low detection limits in complex mixtures
Specificity – Enzymes react ONLY with the target to be analyzed
Safety – Enzyme-based analysis involves only non-toxic reagents
No high heat or pressure, heavy metals, or solvents involved
