FREDsense is a Calgary-based biotechnology venture developing novel tools for real-time water quality analysis. Our lead product - the Field Ready Electrochemical Detector (FRED) - consists of a genetically engineered bacterium tuned to sense heavy metals and other contaminants. The system is portable, autonomous, and connected, providing users with continuous water quality measurements.
Does Water Chemistry Affect the Efficiency of Your Process?
Chemical Analysis is Complex
Water is essential to our lives, almost every industry, and our environment. It is our most precious resource. Despite this, our ability to monitor the quality of our water assets is lacking. Tools are expensive, complex, and require processing steps. This costs time, money and means that decisions can’t be made in real-time.
We are Here to Change that
FREDsense combines biology and engineering to detect chemicals in your water. Our portable field kits are fast, sensitive, and require no training to use. Spend less time acquiring your water quality information and instead focus on making active decisions affecting your infrastructure. The Field Ready Electrochemical Detector (FRED), is fast & sensitive, achieving trace detection of select chemicals (down to 1 ug/L - ppb), and is easy to use.
