About American Micro Detection Systems (AMDS)

American Micro Detection Systems (AMDS) manufacture innovative water analysis instrumentation designed to enable a cleaner and safer environment.


Their patented Real-time Elemental XRF system (REX) delivers repeatable, accurate analysis of dissolved toxic metals to low ppb levels at the source. The system also features automated process stream sampling that can trigger alarms or process changes.


Fluid flow is regulated to 40ml/min, with dissolved metal ions captured onto meso-porous nano-cellular carbon aerogel foam through a process similar to capacitive de-ionization.


No labour force is required and there are no user serviceable parts. Data is delivered via text file format and can be sent to any IP address via ethernet or wireless device.


AMDS’s work has seen them chosen by The Artemis Project as a Top 50 Water Company competition winner for three years.


The Artemis Top 50 is the water industry’s benchmark for recognizing innovation that matters, and identifies the entrepreneurs that are applying technology to meet the world’s water challenges.

REX specifications (read more)

REX is the perfect choice for process control applications. Rex is also programmable to monitor single elements and will expand to cover all EPA regulated metals. With an analysis time of 15 minutes for low ppm levels to just under an hour for low ppb levels, REX detects trace metals from aluminum to uranium in record time. REX has numerous output options including:


  • Spectral
  • Text file with concentrations
  • Wireless alerts to phones or computers
  • Satellite uplink


Here is an example of a typical REX printout:
