Water Quality Laboratory

Water Quality Laboratory

This laboratory is equipped with very advanced instruments that especially suit the Sudan environment and needs. Moreover, the lab covers a wide range of tests and offers services for testing physical, chemical and biological properties of water. The lab was built in a flexible way to accommodate future development in basic and applied research, beside the general services for the society. Total quality central management program is initiated to combine both efficiency and precision. The state of the art of the laboratory system allows creating multi-analytical approaches to solving problems and generates strategic data and information.

The Water Microbiology division provides testing services for numerous water types including, potable water, waste water, bottled water, food processing water and dialysis water. UNESCO-CWR lab provides advice and assistance on water quality monitoring and water sample collection.

The laboratory provides bacteriological analysis of water for the private sector, researchers, students, government departments and the general public. Various water quality tests are available to detect the number and types of microorganisms in water and assist communities in keeping the microbial content of their water supplies at safe level. These tests and standard procedures include:-

– Most Probable Number (MPN) using liquid media

– Presence/ absence test using liquid media

– Total Bacterial Count

– Membrane Filtration Technique

Further the following analysis can be performed in the lab.

– Physicochemical analysis;

– Major cations;

– Major anions.
