Singapore | Posted on June 5th, 2012

The Membrane Integrity Sensor is currently the flagship product from MINT. It is a sensitive analysis system for continuous and reliable online monitoring of water quality at water treatment facilities. The system was developed at the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore and introduced to the market last year.
