Description of the Solution
BiWAS - Biological Water Alarm System
Sensors for distributed installation in the drinking water network.
There are three things that make BiWAS stand out from all other comparable products;
1) It provides «real time monitoring»
2) It monitors a broad spectrum of toxicants, pathogens and (future) carcinogens
3) It does this in a very cost-effective way because of micro and nano technology
Main Innovative Element:
Modular Lab on Chip, micro and nano technology enables a solution that is small enough to install cheaply along the drinking water network.
Among the technologies we use are
-living cells that emit varying luminescence dependent on exposure
-micro light sources and fluorescence measurements
Kinds of Problems
- Reduce unnecessary water analyses and concentrate on the risks that really matter, including biological dangers and terror.
- Ensure broad spectrum monitoring and continuous monitoring throughout the whole water supply network.
