The Industry’s First Water Monitoring Smartphone App Transforms the Way Environmental Professionals Collect Water Quality Data

FORT COLLINS, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- In-Situ® Inc. announces the new smarTROLL™ Multiparameter (MP) Handheld Instrument and iSitu™ Smartphone Application for environmental monitoring applications. Ideal for water quality spot checks, the smarTROLL MP Handheld can be used for any surface-water monitoring application. No training time is required to use the probe or the intuitive smartphone application. Technicians can instantly read results for 14 water quality parameters by simply using a smartphone—no bulky handheld meter is required.

In-Situ Inc.’s unique iSitu App, designed to run on an iPhone®, iPod touch®, or iPad®, makes it easy to email data instantly to colleagues and to log site-specific data to a smartphone.
