About the entity

Palintest, Providing equipment for water quality monitoring and disinfection control, our equipment empowers individuals to make water quality decisions with confidence.

As the European water testing sector continues its swift transformation, UK market leader Palintest is bolstering its presence in key European territories, announcing its intention to seek strategic distribution partnerships, starting with France, Germany, Spain, and the Benelux region.

Palintest, a division of Halma plc, is placing its groundbreaking Kemio electrochemical testing technology at the forefront of this European expansion, alongside its established Lumiso photometric products. The Kemio range sets set new standards for simplicity and reliablity, showcasing the company’s dedication to top-tier water quality. Having set benchmarks in the UK, Palintest see the transformational technology as the key to solidifying strong distribution alliances in the drinking and waste water sector across Europe.

Heading up this ambitious venture, Gregory Godeau, Head Of Sales - Export & EU, remarks: "Our dedication to the protection of water and public health remains steadfast. Our notable achievements in the UK market set a precedent, and with Europe's increasing emphasis on water quality and the new Drinking Water Directive, we recognise a significant opportunity to mirror our UK success across these crucial markets. Sitting alongside our proven photometric solutions, we see Kemio, our groundbreaking new product series, as central to this endeavour."

The Kemio range, encompassing Kemio Disinfection, Kemio Heavy Metals, and Kemio Multi, is designed for maximum water testing efficiency. The range is built around Palintest's patented single-use sensor electrochemical technology, ensuring laboratory-level accuracy whether utilised in a lab or in the field, and giving reliable results regardless of the colour or turbidity of the water.

Highlighting Kemio's unparalleled adaptability, Mr Godeau comments: "Whether it's swiftly testing critical disinfection parameters or assessing heavy metals content in a matter of minutes, Kemio stands alone in the marketplace. It's also the sole EPA-approved portable method for lead testing, serving as a shield against this and other harmful contaminants."

With the EU’s renewed Drinking Water Directive setting a world-leading standard for water purity, Palintest's offerings become even more pertinent. The directive, now translated into national legislation, pursues a zero pollution objective, promising EU citizens unmatched water quality standards. Palintest's technology aligns perfectly with the directive's requirements, ensuring meticulous adherence to guidelines, especially with the heightened vigilance on potential contaminants like arsenic and ammonia.

Palintest is fully supportive of the quest for high quality drink water, as well as the need to avoid waste water contamination, which is why it is delivering products that both detect and combat potential water threats and is keen to collaborate with like-minded partners in the industry who share a similar vision. 

Palintest will be exhibiting on stand 02.206 at the Aquatech Show in Amsterdam from 6-9 November. Gregory and his team are on the lookout for prospective clients as well as potential partners.
