Lishtot is working on three types of devices:
Lishtot is working on three types of solutions:
Lishtot’s devices will give any person around the world the ability to test water before drinking.
Lishtot’s fixed devices can solve many problems related to running water.
There are many applications from the food and beverages industry for using our technology in production lines
The Sensor works on the following principle: presence of contaminants, either general or in some embodiment’s specific bacteria or organic pesticides causes a differential electrical output in an electrical circuit. For example, clean tap water tested by Lishtot showed consistent outputs between +600 and +1000 Lishtot’s Safety Points; a similar water sample spiked with pathogenic E. coli at 1,000 cells per milliliter gave readings of 0 to -200 Lishtot Safety Points under similar testing conditions .
Lishtot technology has been successfully tested in and out of the lab several thousand experiments. The system has shown excellent reproducibility and the robustness required for testing under the most challenging conditions. As many who live in areas lacking dependable water resources boil their water, bacteria are not their major health concern. There are dozens of major pesticides used in Africa, China, India and in other countries and regions; while these specific chemicals will have to be tested for device calibration, preliminary results with several unique organic pesticides show that pesticides are easily detectable in otherwise clean water samples. Heavy metals such as mercury, cadmium and lead have been successfully identified at the ppb level with the same technology.

Lishtot tests take between two and four seconds. Competing “fast” heavy metal tests generally require fifteen minutes, while typical plating protocols are eight to twenty-four hours.
Ease of Use
Many Lishtot embodiments require no user input whatsoever, as the systems are automatic in sampling, testing, data collection, and results determination.
Lishtot's technology is based on robust components that are inexpensive and readily available. There is no requirement for added reagents or special—and expensive—tracer molecules. Cost is pennies per test.
Lishtot's technology detects heavy metals, pathogenic bacteria, and organic pesticides in water and is not affected by dirt or soil.
Lishtot ("to drink" in Hebrew) has developed a technology for water testing that detects contamination in water in less than 4 seconds based on changes in water electronic characteristics.
Lishtot's mission is to connect through the Internet via a dedicated smartphone application many water testing devices in order to build worldwide and local water quality maps that provide the answer to any person in real time whether "to drink or not to drink?".
Lishtot's technology, based on 15 years of research, detects many contamination types (including bacteria, heavy metals and organic pesticides) and is reusable, requires no added reagents and costs cents per test.

In the last days Cal Water issued “water boil alert” for part of Los Altos, CA. The boil water alert has been issued after finding E.coli bacteria in drinking water. The customers complained why it took so long, almost two days after the contamination started to alert the customers. In addition the water company decided[…]
Watch Lishtot’s CTO, Dr. Alan Bauer talk about how useful is Lishtot’s technology against terror threat.
The most basic need of every human being is water. Two liters of water are suggested for daily intake. Yet, much of the world does not enjoy safe drinking water: According to the most recent UN estimates, 785 million people worldwide, and especially in developing countries, do not have access to safe water, while 3.4[…]
