Dallas, TX-based Max-IR Labs announced it has been awarded a Phase I Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) grant of $225,000 (USD) from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to continue its development of a novel real-time optical sensor for nitrate detection in water and soil. Driven by recent advances in infrared technology, the proposed sensor will provide superior performance and flexibility, while being 70-percent less costly than traditional UV instruments and more robust and versatile than ion-selective electrodes.
