Today, water monitoring is still done the old-fashioned way, by drawing samples and submitting them to labs for analysis.  This repetitive, labor-intensive, process cries for automation.  Sometimes the lab results arrive too late to prevent downstream contamination accidents.  One paper company in Maine spends over $450,000 per year to repeatedly analyze the same contaminants.   There is a market need for a low-cost, continuous-flow monitor to detect waterborne contaminants in real-time.

Quansor has focused on creating such a technology and has finally achieved a long sought-after breakthrough.  The company is ready now to commercialize its monitors and begin sales.
