Every day, we wake up in the morning and head to the kitchen to have our first drink of water. It might be direct from the tap, or from a bottle in the fridge – either way, it has been supplied by a responsible and professional water utility or from a bottled water supplier, both subject to strict regulatory requirements. We don’t think twice – we assume it’s safe and we just drink it… However, it’s not always like this.
Imagine a different scenario. You’ve been hiking for hours, your water bottle is empty and you come to a pretty little stream. The water is crystal clear and you’re thirsty. You are about to kneel down and take a much-needed drink – but is it safe to drink? Will you get sick? Will you take a chance, or just keep hiking to the next place you can buy a bottle of water?
Whether you are hiking, driving, boating, flying to an unfamiliar location, or visiting a country property and taking a drink from the rainwater tank, the issue is the same. Do you have any idea if that next sip of water is safe to drink – or not?
Contamination by nasty bacteria such as E.coli, pesticides and heavy metals doesn’t necessarily discolour the water, leave a smell or any other obvious sign that there is a problem.
Lack of access to clean water is a global issue. Part of the problem is the inability to check if the water is clean or not.
A new portable and affordable device, the TestDrop Pro, is changing the game. The TestDrop Pro can instantly detect contaminants such as E. coli, lead, PFOS, arsenic, mercury, copper, chlorine, protein and more, just by analyzing the electric field around it. There is no need for strips, microfluidics or toxic chemicals.
Developed by Lishtot, an Israeli firm which has been named one of TIME Magazine’s 2018 Genius Companies, the TestDrop Pro does not even need to touch the water.
Swirling the water in a small plastic container uses the triboelectric effect to create a local electrostatic field. The field is measured by the TestDrop’s in-built sensors. Clean drinking water has a characteristic field which is indicated by a blue light, while contaminants, including bacteria, organics, heavy metals, pesticides, and toxins create distortions, in that field, and are indicated by a red light.
The device has been subjected to third-party testing and has been proven to work very well. The technology is incredibly sensitive to anything that isn’t supposed to be in drinking water, including soap or saliva.
The TestDrop Pro also connects via Bluetooth to the dedicated Lishtot mobile app where users can obtain more insight into the test results, track their test history and find a percentage likelihood of contamination.
