Protecting public health by providing safe drinking water to citizens served by community water systems is and will always be a serious concern of government agencies, public water suppliers and private industries around the world. There is a growing need to make the on-site testing of these water supplies easier and more reliable to detect and assess contamination in a timely manner to shorten the deleterious health effects of heavy metals in water. A completely new technology is now available to the pollution control industry that offers a new way to test water for contaminants that greatly reduces the time, effort, cost and complexity of testing water samples for contaminants such as lead in water. Using DNAzyme technology applied to heavy metals testing in water, ANDalyze, Inc. has developed a DNA sensor technology combined with a hand-held fluorimeter platform that tests water samples within two minutes giving results at the push of a button.
