Europe: Austrian company honored at water summit
Vienna Water Monitoring Solutions was named First Place Innovator in the Industrial Water Sector at the International Water Summit in Abu Dhabi. The company’s ColiMinder® technology for fast and automated microbiological water quality measurement (which takes only 15 minutes to get a result on the actual bacterial contamination of water) was a standout performer for the award. Traditionally, a classical lab test on bacterial contamination takes 24 to 72 hours to deliver a result. This new methodology provides an extremely important parameter of microbiological water quality as an online parameter for quality monitoring, process control and early warning.
