“The device was easy to use and safe, and having immediate results not only made the work in the field easy, but also faster than it would otherwise have been. Getting water sample shipments from outside the EU to Finland is always a bit of a challenge, and so the waiting time could have been days at worst, extending the overall project duration by weeks.”

“MWAS performed reliably as a real-time on-site measurement method from an environmental specialists’ perspective. It takes approximately 15 minutes to collect the water sample and to perform an on-site measurement. Less than 1 h of training is needed to be operate MWAS”

“The accuracy is at a good level, when considering the total accuracy of environmental water analyses.”

“The main advantage of the MWAS system is the ability to obtain results quickly, which enables fast decision making whether for further sampling or any other necessary measures.”
