Affordable Arsenic Sensor Could Save Lives

Affordable Arsenic Sensor Could Save Lives
An inexpensive, rapid arsenic sensor from Bio Nano consulting could help save lived in developing countries.

In some areas, such as Bangladesh, the drinking water is contaminated with arsenic, which causes up to twenty percent of deaths. To help reduce these fatalities, the team created a small, handheld sensor able to detect and measure the amount of arsenic in a tiny water sample. The results are delivered in less than a minute, and the inexpensive test could revolutionize the way the problem is addressed.
