Microlyze's Waterlyzer makes real-time water contamination detection possible, therefore, alleviating some stress surrounding tap water consumption. The gadget works on a few levels. First, it protects the household. Secondly, it can signal "potential threats to health and safety" in the community. Thirdly, it can call attention to a home utility that is not performing as expected. In addition, the gathered data can have implications for the infrastructures in neighborhoods and even cities.
The water contamination detection can be used quite efficiently. The biosensor of the Waterlyzer requires only a single drop from the tap to gather enough data for a thorough analysis. The device looks for contaminants such as LEAD, chlorine, pH, heavy metals, pesticides, nitrates, bacteria and more.
