e-SENS Incorporates Plans Launch of Solution for Water Profiling

Press Release

September 21, 2012

e-SENS Corporation announced initial investments have been secured, and a new office and lab are now open and operating, as the company prepares its first product for the market, expecting to ship samples within a year.

That product will be a potable water profiling system, using electrochemical sensors based on patented, and microfabricated, semiconductor “lab-on-a-chip” technology, that simultaneously tests for up to 18 disinfectant and infrastructure critical analytes and parameters in water, in less than five minutes. These analytes and parameters of water are critical to the management of potable water quality and safety.

The patents for the sensor technology are licensed to e-SENS from the University of Michigan for exclusive worldwide use. Technology development by the founders has been ongoing for more than 30 years, and initial hires have been made while the company actively seeks additional investors and staff members.

According to Michael McCorquodale, president, chief operating officer and co-founder of e-SENS, “Water quality is critical in so many different fields: municipal, industrial, medical and environmental. Potable water quality is also a critical health concern. Our silicon-based system leverages over three decades of research and will be a major advance in giving users a complete, comprehensive and nearly instant picture of the quality of the water we depend on and take for granted. This change mirrors the many ways that silicon technology is transforming the world now, from communications and photography, to music and reading.”

Said Uwe Michalak of ASPON Consulting, a product management and marketing consultancy firm in Fort Collins, CO, “With a rapidly aging water supply infrastructure, and an increased demand on municipalities and industrial and commercial water users to provide more and better results at a lower cost, the introduction of an integrated water quality testing solution is not only timely, but essential to achieve such goals. The same industries are further challenged with the implementation of new regulations like EPA’s Disinfection By-Products Rule.”
