TECTA-PDS markets the world’s first, automated, EPA-approved microbiological water quality monitoring system, which lowers overall monitoring costs and improves both water quality and human health. Originally formed in 2003 under the name Pathogen Detection Systems (PDS) as a direct result of the Walkerton disaster in Ontario, Canada, TECTA-PDS was determined to revolutionize microbiological monitoring methods. With over 300 systems now around the world and adopted as the method to test water in over 30 countries, TECTA-PDS is succeeding in achieving its goal of setting the new standard for microbiological monitoring of drinking water quality.
