Waterborne disease is the leading cause of death around the world. Our partners Frank Water are working with UWE Bristol to develop a sensor that will detect bacteria in water. The sensors are more accurate than traditional water testing methods and will detect a greater number of different bacteria. Results from the sensor will be fed directly to those communities that use the water source to allow them to monitor the quality of their water and take steps to improve it where needed.
