Intelligent Materials is a Memorial University spin-off company that provides a clean tech portable water sampling device for analysis and monitoring of particular compounds of interest in water. Our approach to water analysis reduces the standard time spent for water sample handling and analysis down to a few minutes with the advantages of a portable, green, cost-effective water sampling system. The target customers are laboratories that offer analytical services to environmental and energy industries, and marine science researchers.
Our technology is based on a thin-film molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) coating. When immersed in water, the MIP adsorbs a targeted compound (or class of compounds). These compounds can then be directly analyzed on the surface of the MIP or extracted and injected into common detectors found in analytical laboratories. If sampling must be done in a remote or inaccessible area, then the MIP can be attached to a remotely operated vehicle for deployment.
