Capilix, Intellitect, and Dynamax Among Exciting Startups in $1.5 Billion Water Quality Analytics Market
BOSTON --(Business Wire)--
Capilix, Intellitect, and Dynamax are some of the "dominant" startups
poised to revolutionize the $1.5 billion global water quality analytics
market, according to a report by Lux
"Advances in analytics techniques, driven over the last two decades by
research in the pharmaceutical industry, have begun to find their way
into water analytics," said Brent Giles, Lux Research Senior Analyst and
the lead author of the report titled, "Dropwise:
Leveraging the Revolutionary Value of Next-Generation Water Quality
"Microfluidics has begun to drive down reagent volumes and has opened up
new techniques to practical online analysis, and the increasing
affordability of biological molecules is creatig handheld instruments
with sensitivities that would have been science fiction a few years
ago," he added.
Lux Research positioned water analytics technology developers on the Lux
Innovation Grid based on their Technical Value and Business Execution -
companies that are strong on both axes reach the "Dominant" quadrant.
They also assessed each company's maturity, and provided an overall Lux
Take. Among their findings:
Dynamax high in technical value. Using a powerful DNA-based
recognition approach, Dynamax is building a library of indicators to
quantify heavy metals at the part per billion (ppb) level. It scores
high in technical value because its technology can handle difficult
environments and offer continuous monitoring.
Intellitect advances standard probes. Intellitect offers a
suite of common sensors that can be used on a single pipe, helping
drinking water companies redefine how they monitor water quality in
their distribution systems.
Capilix taps agriculture market. The Netherlands-based
Capilix uses miniaturized capillary electrophoresis sensors that can
read a wide range of agriculturally relevant parameters to monitor
water quality. Early customers include greenhouse growers, and the
firm is also targeting the anaerobic digestor market.
The report, titled "Dropwise: Leveraging the Revolutionary Value of
Next-Generation Water Quality Analytics," is part of the Lux Research Water
