A new technology called ScanDrop takes 8 hours to provide water quality diagnostics of Escherichia coli bacteria instead of 2-3 days. The process can quickly and rapidly capture, detect, and identify bacteria in drinking water. The process uses “droplet microfluidics, a portable imaging system, and cloud-based control software and data storage.”
