Science to save the Mar Menor: The innovative automatic ion analyzer AMIC7

The innovative AMIC7 automatic ion analyzer is the necessary tool to combat water pollution in the Mar Menor, a region of Murcia, Spain, known for its crystal clear waters and rich marine life

Join us on this journey to learn how this find can be the savior of the Mar Menor.

The Mar Menor, a natural paradise in the region of Murcia, Spain, is known for its crystal clear waters and rich marine life. In recent years, however, it has fallen victim to serious pollution due to the presence of nutrients such as ammonium, nitrogen and others, which can have harmful effects on the ecological balance of the ecosystem.

To combat this problem, our scientists have developed an automatic AMIC7 ion analyzer that generates solutions to measure the levels of these nutrients in the water of the Mar Menor and in all fertigation and leachate processes that can generate an excess of input. This device is crucial to detect early pollution and take measures to protect biodiversity and water quality in the area.

Ammonium, nitrogen, among others, are essential nutrients for the growth of algae and other aquatic organisms, but in excess they can be harmful to the ecological balance of the ecosystem. If there are too many nutrients in the water, an algal overload can occur, which in turn can deplete oxygen and create “dead zones” where marine life cannot survive. Thanks to the automatic ion analyzer, scientists can accurately measure ammonium and nitrogen levels in Mar Menor water, allowing water managers to take immediate action to prevent pollution and protect the health of the marine ecosystem. This device is a valuable tool for long-term monitoring of water quality in the Mar Menor.

The recovery of the Mar Menor will be a “very long process
complex” and will last for decades

By measuring nutrient levels in water on a regular basis, trends and patterns can be detected over time and resource management adjustments made to protect the area’s biodiversity. In conclusion, the automatic ion analyzer is a vital tool in the fight against water pollution in the Mar Menor. By allowing accurate, real-time measurement of nutrient levels, immediate action can be taken to protect the marine ecosystem and maintain water quality in the area.


With the help of this technology and responsible resource management, we can ensure the conservation of the Mar Menor and its rich biodiversity for future generations. Discover how a revolutionary automatic ion analyzer can be the solution to restore water quality in the Mar Menor.

This innovative device generates precise solutions in real time to combat pollution caused by ammonium, nitrogen and others. Thanks to its efficiency and speed, it can be a crucial tool for protecting the environment and aquatic life in the Mar Menor.


4 Features of Hydroponic Nutrient Sensor

Hydroponics nutrient sensor for analysis

Hydroponics is an alternative method of growing food using water instead of soil. The hydroponic nutrient sensor meter and nutrient meter track nutrient levels.

4 Features of Hydroponic Nutrient Sensor

  1. It measures nitrogen levels with an ISE nitrogen sensor. A nitrogen sensor measures the nitrogen level in its solution. You can use this data to determine whether you need to add more fertilizer or not.
  2. Monitors nitrate levels with a nitrate ISE sensor. A nitrate sensor monitors nitrate levels in its solution. This allows you to see how much nitrate is available in your solution.
  3. Detects ammonia levels with an ammonium ISE sensor. The ammonia sensor detects ammonium levels in water. It will let you know when the level is too high. You can adjust the pH of your solution to reduce ammonia levels.
  4. Check pH levels with an ISE pH sensor. A pH sensor is a small device that connects to the sample. It measures the pH of your water and checks data. This allows you to see how your plants are doing.

Water Quality Monitor

A pH sensor will alert you when the pH level drops below 5.5 or rises above 7.0. If you notice a sudden drop in pH levels, you should check your water quality immediately. You can also use an inline pH sensor to measure the pH of your water every day.

Excellence in crops: precision agriculture

Precision agriculture is a relatively new concept. It was born in the USA at the beginning of the 80s, but its importance grows exponentially in recent years with the arrival of new technologies (sensors, GPS, drones …). Field and crops are dynamic and are constantly changing, therefore it is necessary to analyze and understand all those variations and particularities of the environment in order to be able to provide the exact inputs for crop optimization.

The application of the most innovative technology, in all fields of agriculture, allows us to obtain the necessary information to understand the variations of soil and crops. To be able to understand the variability of the productivity of agricultural systems we must analyze two concepts: The spatial and temporal variability.

The spatial heterogeneity is caused by different environmental factors, among which, is the soil (texture, depth, nitrogen content phosphorus and potassium), weeds, and diseases. In this case we can use nutrient analyzers like IMACIMUS to know the composition of the soil, the sap or the nutrients present in irrigation water.

In contrast, the temporal variation is mainly related to differences in climatic conditions between years (hail, drought, rain, etc.), as well as, to management and cultivation practices.

Successful application of Precision Agriculture practices increases the efficiency of production processes and reduces costs while reducing pollution

Precision agriculture consists of four phases, the first is the acquisition of data, then the analysis of this data and decision making in relation to the information obtained. These actions can be both preventive (eg, anticipating pests and diseases) or management (eg knowing how much and when to irrigate with consequent savings) thanks to forecasts and measurements.
The fourth phase is performance monitoring. The fact of evaluating the production, our actions and the final performance, allows us to correct course and know our successes. This is possible thanks to the continuous monitoring we have of the crop and thus measure the immediate and long-term effect of our actions. The ability to store information allows us to compare campaigns.

In short, precision agriculture implies a cyclical system of data collection and GIS (Geographic Information Systems) have a preponderant role in the integration, interpretation and analysis of the available information. The information collected through the new technologies allows us to evaluate with greater precision the optimum density of sowing.

Through sensors we can estimate the appropriate amount of fertilizer or other necessary inputs, and more accurately predict the yield and crop production. With IMACIMUS it is going to be a simple and fast task.

IMACIMUS is the fastest and most reliable nutrient analyzer on the market thanks to its formula based on nanotechnology patented by NT Sensors. Precision agriculture is fundamental to the sustainable development of the agriculture sector. With these new production systems, we will be able to guarantee a sufficient and sustainable agricultural production.
