Real-Time Integrity Monitoring of Reverse Osmosis Membranes

Technology Description: Professor Cohen and his research team have developed a Membrane Integrity Monitoring (MIMo) system and approach to monitor the integrity of reverse osmosis membranes in real-time. By utilizing automated marker injection and high sensitivity detection this monitoring system can detect integrity breaches and their severity and assess the potential passage of various pathogens and contaminants of concern. In addition to providing marker detection down to the part-per-billion level the marker used in the approach is FDA-approved non-toxic and economic to use for routine integrity testing. Applications: The MIMo system can be deployed in any situation that used reverse osmosis membranes to purify water including seawater desalination wastewater treatment and decontamination of impaired waters.
