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.
