BACTEST Launches Speedy Breedy SeaSure´┐Ż to determine if treated ballast water complies with standards

Wednesday, 23 November 2016


Cambridge UK based BACTEST®, inventor and manufacturer of Speedy Breedy®, the world’s most sensitive, versatile and portable contamination test has announced a new product variant specifically designed for the maritime market Speedy Breedy SeaSure®.

Speedy Breedy SeaSure® is a patent pending integrated ballast water testing solution suitable to be used on-board a ship, that gathers test results on microbial, phytoplankton and chemical contamination, reporting on whether treated ballast water is compliant to the IMO-D2, VGP and other standards. This data is automatically input into a secure report called Ballast Log that is suitable for transmission to interested parties such as ballast water treatment systems manufacturers, ship owners and Port State control providing a secure audit trail.

“The Convention will require all ships to implement a ballast water management plan. All ships will have to carry a Ballast Water Record Book and will be required to carry out ballast water management procedures to a given standard.” (Source IMO)

“Using Speedy Breedy SeaSure® as part of a ship’s ballast water management procedure would make the process much simpler and provide a secure digital solution for ship owners” said Bactest CEO Prof. Annie Brooking.

“Our research into the ballast water testing market told us that ships sending samples to a land based lab for testing was just not feasible. Ship owners and Port State control want a one-stop shop to buy a completely integrated solution, which is easy to use, and provides an automated transmittable Ballast Log report, that would tell them if they were compliant with various standards so they would not risk being delayed in port. Speedy Breedy SeaSure® ticks all of these boxes”.
