This sensor is a scanner that allows for the detection of Legionella in a water system onsite in under one hour, as opposed to a process that now takes 10 days of cultivation and analysis offsite.
3—The stakeholders are anyone utilizing hot water systems, or industrial cooling that requires cooling towers. (Building owners or facility managers, chemical application companies.)
4—Construct a plug-in cartridge/ component that fits into an already onsite side- stream chemical injection system. Contact regional chemical application companies already defining the market. (Barclay, Nalco). Persuade the companies to purchase and install this sensor as a brand protection step.

The device uses a photonics technique called Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR) which reads information from a refracted laser beam, allowing for fast, highly sensitive, inexpensive detection from a small sample.
