e-SENS Corp. has revealed that it has begun preparation for the release of its water profiling system. The product uses electrochemical sensors based on patented and microfabricated semiconductor "lab-on-a-chip" technology that simultaneously tests up to 18 disinfectant and infrastructure critical analytes and parameters in water in less than five minutes.

The patents for the sensor technology are licensed to e-SENS from the University of Michigan for exclusive worldwide use.�Technology development by the founders has been ongoing for over 30 years, stated the company.

According to Michael McCorquodale, president, and co-founder of e-SENS, "Water quality is critical in so many different fields: municipal, industrial, medical and environmental. Potable water quality is also a critical health concern. Our silicon-based system leverages over three decades of research and will be a major advance in giving users a complete, comprehensive and nearly instant picture of the quality of the water we depend on and take for granted. This change mirrors the many ways that silicon technology is transforming the world now, from communications and photography, to music and reading."

The company is expected to ship samples of the solution within the year.
