Advanced water analyzer technology expands its global IP protection with Canadian patent



Blue I Water Technologies, a prominent global provider of smart and simple water quality analyzers and controllers, has been granted yet another patent on the PRIZMA water analyzer and controller for residential swimming pools, this time by the Canadian Intellectual Property Office.

The PRIZMA’s success has been based on its innovative electro-optic test strip technology that has introduced automation to the litmus paper test for monitoring chemicals in water. The system assures chemical balancing for the pool’s water, features automatic calibration, and provides real-time online reports. The patent, entitled “Indicator Strip and a Device for Automatic Testing of Liquids”, further protects the technology that is already patented in the United States, Australia, China, South Africa, UK, France, Germany, Spain, and many other countries. This latest development will increase accessibility to the product worldwide and is likely to increase demand.

One of Blue I’s flagship developments, PRIZMA’s system is particularly suited for use in residential and private swimming pools and spas, ensuring pool sanitation and clear water. It works by applying electro-optic capabilities to accurately analyze test pads that automatically monitor water quality at regular intervals. A continuous indicator strip is run across a series of individual test sections, each providing analysis for a different chemical, such as chlorine and pH. Pool owners and pool service companies benefit from the simple-to-use, probeless (no calibration) and low maintenance technology that helps to significantly reduce work load and unnecessary pool maintenance, as well as keeping them up-to-date with online reports.

“The Canadian patent is a very welcome milestone for Blue I Water Technologies in completing global patenting” says CEO Jacob Azran. “The PRIZMA and our other innovative water analysis and control products have broken into the world market and are gaining prominence in many locations including North America, China, India, Brazil, Colombia and Europe. We intend to continue developing solutions and providing our clients with the most advanced technologies in the industry, while protecting the environment by saving energy and water.”

About PRIZMA®:
This revolutionary system automatically measures and balances the chlorine and pH levels in private pools and spas, preventing chemical overdosing and under-dosing and ensuring environmental and personal safety. The electro-optic technology yields accurate readings, utilizing a colorimetric-based test strip cartridge, eliminating the pH effect on chlorine measurements as well as the need to calibrate the system. Measurements and alerts are transmitted via wireless communications, allowing 24/7 remote monitoring and control by the pool administrators, saving unnecessary maintenance.

PRIZMA’s simple operation, calibration-free system, and remote reporting significantly reduce maintenance work load and costs.

About Blue I Water Technologies:
Blue I Water Technologies was established in Israel in 2003 with the development of a number of unique technologies for water quality monitoring and treatment. Its products are leading global technology in detecting chlorine and other components in sea water and in controlling municipal water systems. They are pioneering the most advanced methods of monitoring water for the food and beverage industry, the petroleum and petrochemical industry, and public and private swimming pools.
Clients include international industry leaders such as Coca Cola, Yoplait, Euro Disney, Total, BAZAN Oil Refineries Ltd., Israel Electric Corp, and the Olympic swimming pool in Beijing.

Jacob Azran, formerly a senior staff member at Orbotech, was appointed CEO of Blue I in 2011.

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.

In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
