SMS organised its 3rd demonstration workshop!

Le 25 07 2016



On July 21st 2016, the University Tor Vergata of Roma, in collaboration with the SYSTEA and the other SMS partners, hosted the 3rd SMS demonqtration workshop on biosensors assembling and measurement for water monitoring.

The workshop aimed at sharing and demonstrate, to different stakeholders, technics and innovation developed by the different SMS partners in order to finalise the water monitoring devices.

The morning session was dedicated to oral presentations on the development of the different biosensors, the sampling and preconcentration, and the integration of the modules into one detection tool. Demonstration of the detection instruments were made in the afternoon in the lab of the University.

Our buoy monitoring water in the Gulf of Trieste!

Le 14 07 2016

We are pleased to inform you that our WIZ nutrients (NH3, NO3, NO2 and PO4) in-situ probe with 0.1 microns automatic filtration & backwashing and our ZetaLOG data-logger is operating, unattended, in our coastal buoy in the Gulf of Trieste.

Our ZetaCED Web based data storage, presentation and validation system, regularly collects mesurement data acquired by the probe.

Our partner NIB will take care of the regular maintenance along the following months and will perform data validation, collecting water samples in the same place and measuring them in their lab using oligotrophic water as blank and the same standard solution we used to calibrate our WIZ probe.
