HELSINKI, FINLAND: Kemira Oyj acquires liquid fingerprinting technology for qualitative and quantitative liquid analyses from start-up Aqsens Oy, headquartered in Helsinki, Finland.

This technology utilises enhanced time resolved fluorescence (E-TRF) method that enables high sensitivity and selectivity to monitor various liquid samples. 

The first application where this technology has been used is Kemira KemConnect SI system, which measures residual polymeric scale inhibitor concentration from oil field waters in a few minutes. Reliable real-time data on-site improves operators' treatment effectiveness and maximises the production.

"The acquisition demonstrates Kemira's commitment to acquire new technology that improves our capabilities to provide smart chemical monitoring tools for our customers. We look forward to developing this technology further to become a vital part of Kemira KemConnect process management package in multiple applications," said Antti Salminen, president, industry & water.

"Aqsens has decided to refocus the company's business on Health Monitoring, and we are delighted to see our long-term partner Kemira to continue the development and business activities with the jointly developed E-TRF technology platform," added Timo Teimonen, CEO, Aqsens Health Oy.
