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®:

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.
To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...
The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.
Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...
