Rapid acrylamide detection in drinking water
Acrylamide is a highly water-soluble compound and its level in drinking water is regulated in many geographies. The WHO guidelines for drinking water provide a limit of 0.5 ppb for acrylamide.
Current methods for analysis of acrylamide in water are costly, time- and effort-intensive, and results are available only after the water has been distributed for use. We would like a faster, less labor-intensive, and accurate method that can give us results in real time.
Deadline: May 31, 2022
$25,000 - $50,000 is available for a 6 month proof-of-concept.
