World first for YSI

Posted: Friday 20th February 2009

YSI has been awarded the first MCERTS certificates for multiparameter continuous water quality monitors.

YSI Inc. is delighted to announce that following extensive trials conducted by the Environment Agency of England and Wales (EA), the company's '6 series' sondes have been awarded the first MCERTS certificates for multiparameter continuous water quality monitors.

MCERTS is the EA's Monitoring Certification Scheme which is designed to assure the quality and reliability of environmental measurements. MCERTS is comprised of a number of different schemes, one of which applies to instruments that are employed in the continuous monitoring of water, which includes samplers, flow meters and online water quality monitors.

YSI's certificates relate to the 6 series sondes for the measurement of dissolved oxygen, pH and turbidity.

YSI's MCERTS certificates were presented by Catherine Wright, the EA's Head of Modern Regulation, during a Gala Dinner at WWEM 2008 in Telford, UK on 5th November.

Following presentation of the MCERTS certificates, YSI's Darren Hanson said, “As the first company to receive this certificate we have had to work very closely with the Environment Agency to ensure that the testing procedure is appropriate, robust and reliable. Our equipment performed extremely well in the trials and the report that resulted from them will provide a high level of confidence to prospective customers from all over the world.”

Summarising the company's reaction to the MCERTS award, executive vice president of YSI, Gayle Rominger, said, "Our customers rely on YSI instruments to perform accurate reliable environmental monitoring so we are naturally delighted to receive such authoritative third party recognition.

"The fact that we are the first company to receive an MCERTS certificate for a multiparameter instrument demonstrates our intention to remain a leader in this field."
