Pathogen detector for water treatment receives funds for further development

Abstract:
Sustainable Development Technology Canada has announced a new group of "clean" demonstration projects that will receive grants for further development. The new projects relate to contaminated land cleanups and water quality.

One project is called the "Biothreat Early Warning System" that uses a nanotechnology-based sensor to test for 100 pathogens in less than 30 minutes.

The consortium developing the testing system is led by a Montreal company called Early Warning, and includes consulting engineers Conestoga-Rovers & Associates. NASA, and the University of Waterloo, CAP EnviroMicrobial and the State of Utah Center for Excellence for biomedical Microfluidics are also in the consortium. The work is to help measure for preventing waterborne outbreaks of pathogens such as E-coli.
