Extreme weather events such as flooding can also result in contamination of drinking water with robust pathogens. As the number of such events is expected to increase as a result of the climate change, drinking water sanitation will likely be impacted. Furthermore, the increase in global average temperature could favor the proliferation of pathogens in drinking water. To meet these challenges, an expansion of hygiene monitoring for drinking water is necessary.
Thanks to its µBead sensor technology, SpheroScan can be used inline in various process steps of water treatment in a decentralized manner. This makes it possible to monitor the quality of drinking water over a wide area at economical operating costs.
