BIOTA GUARD wins ONS innovation award

Biota Guard is a research based startup company from IRIS and has during relatively short time moved from research and labscale experiments via prototype testing to approach the market.

The ONS 2012 SME Innovation Award was presented to Biota Guard for their research based innovations resulting in the Biota Guard System. This system is a unique technology combining advanced analytics and data management with the use of multiple on-line biological, chemical and physical sensors which will enable fast and effective response to damaging spills in marine environments.
The innovative sensing system based on biological sensors is already offered to the market for shallow water applications and the company is working to demonstrate the technology for arctic environments and subsea applications.
