IIT Kanpur Incubated Start-ups i.e. Earthface Analytics Pvt. Ltd. & Kritsnam Technologies Pvt. Ltd. have developed a device, for analysing and monitoring water quality through easy to use colorimetric test-strip, based on smart-phone technology that screens multiple important water quality parameters in less than 2minutes. The invention enables analysis of multiple water quality parameters in a cost-effective, easy to operate, eco-friendly manner, and have a centralized data management scheme. The system for measuring quality of liquid will empower the masses with an on-site, low-cost, smart water quality testing device to deal with field-level to household-level water contamination problems.
The present invention will address challenges in water quality monitoring by creating an easy to use colorimetric test-strip based smart-phone technology that screens multiple important water quality parameters instantaneously.
A collaborative Indian Patent application has been filed by the start-ups for the above invention. One of the above companies i.e. Earthface Analytics Pvt. Ltd. is a Faculty Member run company by Dr. Indra Sen from Department of Earth Science at IIT Kanpur.
