Online, fast and cheap monitoring of E. coli in water
Drinking water is essential for life, but if contaminated, it can pose substantial health threats. Take for instance, E. coli, one of the most common bacterial infections in humans and animals. Access to safe water is critical. The EU-funded ColiSense Online project is developing a fast, cheap and accurate cloud-based analyser that can quantify E. coli cells in drinking water. This solution, which takes only 60 minutes and costs just EUR 1 per analysis, can be applied anywhere – from waterworks to beverage distilleries – either at site or remotely. The goal is to eliminate E. coli-contaminated drinking water in the EU.
