During the special awards session at the Association for the Science of Limnology & Oceanographic (ASLO) meeting in Honolulu, Hawaii, on Thursday 2 March 2017, SYSTEA was awarded as Winner for Best Overall Performance on both N and P of the Nutrients Sensor Challenge organized by Alliance of Coastal Technologies !
Awards were selected by an indipendent judging panel.
The WIZ in-situ probe was evaluated as cost-effective, commercially available solution for measuring both nitrate and phosphate in an integrated package. It uses a wet chemistry approach to measure both nitrogen and phosphorus, and performed well in lab testing and across the three field deployments, including 72 days in Chesapeake Bay.
