About Us

Our mission is to invent the future of water sensing, ensuring that everyone has access to cleaner and safer potable water. Current water infrastructure is aging and needs to be routinely monitored for water quality until it is updated with newer and safer technology. The process of identifying and replacing all sources of lead contamination in water infrastructure will take decades. The short-term visionĀ of NanoAffix is to launch a portable meter to detect lead in drinking water. Our long-term vision is to integrate this new platform technology with existing infrastructure for continuous monitoring of a larger number of toxic contaminants found in water.
