Xylem’s partnership with MIPS


June 23, 2023

Xylem is a global water technology provider focused on helping customers solve challenges with regards to water through innovative products and services to create a more water-secure and resilient world. Members of Xylem made a trip down for a detailed tour on our online sensor system, which allowed customers to be able to analyze environmental samples in real time with re-generable sensor chips and IoT features with high accuracy. For example, in the detection of iron in water samples, the online sensor shows more than 95% agreement with ICP-MS, with the detection limit to go as low as parts-per-billion (ppb) level. MIPS have collaborated with Xylem for applications in China using our online sensor.
