At ZP we appreciate that there are many types of horticulture including hydro-culture and the subset hydroponics, which are methods of growing plants, usually crops, without soil, by using mineral nutrient solutions in an aqueous solution. The roots may be physically supported by an inert medium such gravel, or other substrates. At ZP we are asked whether our soil nitrate sensors operate in water and when submerged under water, and whether they can be used as part of a hydroponics system, the...

At ZP we see a great potential for our sensors in the agricultural and horticultural industries whether the growing is in fields, under glass, hydroponics etc. The sensors that show the most interest are the potassium, nitrate, calcium, conductivity/salinity/humidity and pH sensors

Over the last few weeks at ZP we have been very busy with the launch of our new educational site the "ZP Academy". The site follows on from previous work by ZP, developing an open source knowledge base aimed at employees and clients, to our surprise it was found to be extremely popular with student. Delighted with how popular the knowledge base became we thought we would meet the demand and launch the "ZP Academy". The site makes electrochemical biosensing simple with well thought out videos,...

By acquiring ISO 13485 certification, are quality management system is deemed high enough that we can manufacture medical devices. In addition to this ZPAgTech has greatly benefited along the way being the beta tester for all the new systems we have implemented. This include a vast range off benefits the following list just names a few: Product Tracking Incoming Quality Checks Outgoing Quality Checks Testing Documentation Standard Operating Procedures This all helps amount to one thing! When...

At ZP AgTech we are actively encouraging Beta Testers to come forward to tryout our revolutionary new nitrate sensors. This is a very exciting opportunity for any beta testers who wish to get involved! You will be helping lead the next generation of sensory equipment whilst also getting your hands on the latest technology well before it even hits the market. In addition to this, you will be making a conscious effort to support a program that aims to better the world by aligning with 11 of the...

As part of our continual effort to improve upon our existing AgTech products we have fabricated a portable soil stack. This will offer us a considerable advantage not just for understanding the behaviour of our sensors in different environments, but for understanding the complexities of soil as a system. The test rig offers many advantages such as being able to control different moisture levels, temperature, humidity, and monitor the movement of nitrate within the system. In the short period...

To start the New Year on a high, we seized the opportunity to perform a long term stability study to establish if any improvements could be made to our market leading nitrate sensors. Stability is a common issue within electrochemistry that often goes over looked. Whilst sensors may initially seem reliable, they can often be found to loose stability overtime. Thankfully at ZP we are always conscious of this issue and develop special coatings to minimise the change. To find out more click the...

Undoubtedly we are extremely proud of all that we have achieved this year. At the very start we developed a nitrate sensitive sensor on our very own hyper-value easy flex screen printed electrodes. We developed an online platform to monitor the sensors from the comfort of our own homes. And most importantly we not only developed a complete product in one year but shipped 12 just in time for Christmas! The images above highlight some of our key achievements that got us to this stage.

This week we hit a major milestone shipping our first batch of 12x 60cm Nitrate Rods!! As a company we are very proud of this achievement, not just for producing a product but for the team that developed it. It takes a good team to make a good product! Fortunately at ZP we have have one of the best and are very proud to admit it. It is one thing to have a group of operators that get the work done, but it's another to have a team of enthusiastic individuals who cohesively work together towards a...

This week we received our first shipment of our new PCB's. Designed by electrical engineers to have a clean configuration and a form better suited to sit snugly within the protective housing. The boards haven't lost any of their previous functionality and have been put through their paces to prove it. We love this new design not just for it's form and capabilities but for it's awesome blue finish!
