When Severn Trent started their project in rapid detection of bacteria using BactoSense, the first industrial flow cytometer, their goal was to reach faster results than with the slow traditional methods. They did not expect that it would lead them to win the Drinking Water Innovation Project of the year ! This price was given at the Water Industry Awards in Birmingham. We are very happy to have support them in this project by providing a solution that gives in just 20 minutes results that used to take 24 hours to arrive. We will continue to develop innovation which will help water suppliers to prevent failure and allow them to be more efficient.
Severn Trent Team received their award at the WIA presentations on 20th May 2019
