Next-generation water testing for the European market (NG-WTEM)

Project description

A rapid, simple to use water testing system

Managing water quality in developing countries remains an important issue. The World Health Organization guidelines state that there should not be a single bacteria present in 100 ml of water. In this context, the EU-funded NG-WTEM project is designing a rapid, simple-to-use water testing system. Already trialled in a large refugee camp, the project will investigate the use of this technology in the European market. The project’s automated testing system allows for a much faster test, with results obtained in less than six hours. This is faster than anything on the market at the moment, with results automatically quantified. By identifying and quantifying the market segment, the project will build and formalise partnerships with developers, manufacturers and distributers.
