All over the world horticulturalists, soil scientists, gardeners and hobby hydroponics growers want to measure the ionic content of the soil or solutions. We have developed the sensors and technology to do just that. Measure up to 8 ions and EC plus pH in a solution.

The barrier for most people is a fear of analytical chemistry. We have partnered with a company to manufacture a completely automatic device to take the scary bits out. The user simply either presents a sample to the machine, the machine automates the calibration and sample analysis and presents the data on screen to be viewed by the user. The data can be saved or printed off immediately ready for the next sample. Another version can be installed and a sampling scheduled to occur as often per day as the user likes, in this version an input pipe is simply inserted in the nutrient tank or the return drain tank, the user can then see the data on their pc in their office or on their phone/tablet with alerts if the data appears outside of the parameters they need to grow their plants successfully, they can then perform the appropriate actions to fertilise or alter the nutrient tank contents.
