The next generation of real-time water quality monitoring. We are putting the lab in the field to monitor: Nitrate, Nitrate, Ammonium, Phosphate and more.

Eco Detection

Our technology utilises Capillary Zone Electrophoresis (CZE) to capture complex environmental data in real-time, allowing for more responsive water quality information at your fingertips.

Capillary Zone Electrophoresis is an analytical method which separates ions based on size, charge and polarity using a high voltage electrical field. Eco Detection technology uses positive and negative electrical field polarities to detect both anions and cations in the sample fluid. Eco Detection has miniaturised this laboratory process into a robust and fieldable system that can detect specific ions at concentrations as low as 10s of parts per billion.

Capable of operating on battery, solar, or mains power, the Eco Detection technology is equipped with remote connectivity allowing for full remote operation and monitoring. Real-time data uploads and capability for multiple sampling per day enables detection of peak contamination events and more accurate trend analysis.

Eco Detection’s innovative sensors test water quality every 15 minutes and transmit the data in real-time so that in­formed decisions can be made to improve freshwater environments.

By harnessing our game-changing, patented sensing technologies, we aim to drive down and reset the cost of real-time data - and become the world’s most trusted source for reliable water quality data.
