NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Waters today said that it would offer water authorities in the US a complimentary drinking water analysis for common over-the-counter and prescription antidepressant pharmaceuticals.
The Milford, Mass.-based firm said that the “limited time” offer would be available to any US water authority that serves more than 100,000 customers. Such authorities can submit a request to the company to perform the analysis on tap water. Waters did not disclose the length of the limited time offer.
Waters said it would test the samples using its AquaAnalysis System.
Waters’ offer comes a week after the Associated Press reported the findings of its own investigation into the water supplies of 24 major metropolitan areas across the country, which found traces of a variety of drugs including antidepressants in the water.
