Sensor Detects Harmful Chemicals In Water

There does not seem to be anything truly unique about sensors that detect chemicals and other substances in water and other liquids. They have been around and in numerous varieties for quite some time. However, MyDx, Inc., makers of the first multi-use hand-held chemical analyzer for consumers, is launching its AquaDx sensor chip for the analysis of toxic chemicals in water. The company is and is now accepting pre-orders at special pricing for early adopters.

Apparently, the chip works with the company’s other analysis products. For example, the AquaDx Sensor works with the MyDx Analyzer multi-use hand-held chemical analyzer, OrganaDx for testing organic fruits and vegetables, and AeroDx, which tests air quality.

The MyDx Analyzer connects the AquaDx sensor by Bluetooth to a smart phone app (iOS and Android) that uploads and aggregates big data analytics and downloads a comprehensive report to the consumer within minutes. The AquaDx application will offer three unique one-time disposable sensors, for:

1. Pesticides and Heavy Metals (Set to US Military Standards)

2. Lead (Set to EPA Standards, Think Flint Michigan water health crisis)

3. Total Hardness, Total Chlorine, pH and Total Alkalinity (Many municipalities use chlorine to “purify” their water.

Alkalinity and pH of the body must stay within a narrow range to be healthy and accordingly, in recent years, the scientific community places increasing importance on the alkalinity of the food and water we consume. Other AquaDx features include real-time detection of toxic, tests for pesticides, heavy metals and other neurotoxin chemicals to the US Military Exposure Guideline (MEG) for Safety, and easy to use, pass/fail results within six minutes.

MyDx Early Adopters

For a limited time, the Company is running a special AquaDx pre-order promotion. New MyDx customers ordering the multi-use Analyzer and AquaDx Electronic Sensor Chip will receive a $100 discount, plus ten free single-use AquaDx sensors and free shipping and handling. Existing MyDx Analyzer owners will receive the AquaDx Electronic Sensor Chip plus ten free single-use AquaDx sensors and a free Multi-Use retrofit upgrade kit ($99 value) and free shipping and handling, for $69.95.  AquaDx delivery is scheduled for December 15.
