LA JOLLA, Calif., Sept. 15, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MyDx, Inc. (OTCQB:MYDX), a rapidly growing chemical detection company and the makers of MyDx®, the first multi-use hand-held chemical analyzer for consumers, today announced it is launching its AquaDx™ sensor chip for the analysis of toxic chemicals in water, and is now accepting pre-orders at special pricing for early adopters.

MyDx Analyzer Applications Growing: AquaDx Addresses $3 Billion Growth Market
The global addressable market for water testing and analysis instruments is approximately $2.9 billion, and projected to grow at compound annual growth rate of 5.2% to reach $3.5 billion by 2019. By putting sophisticated water chemical test and analysis technology in the palm of consumers’ hands, conveniently and affordably, the Company expects its next-generation AquaDx technology will disrupt and significantly expand the global marketplace for water testing.
The Next Generation of Consumer-Grade Water Quality Testing
Just as it does for the CannaDx sensor, the MyDx Analyzer connects the AquaDx sensor by Bluetooth to a smart phone app (iOS and Android) that uploads and aggregates big data analytics and downloads a comprehensive report to the consumer within minutes. The AquaDx application will offer three different one-time disposable sensors, for:
- Pesticides and Heavy Metals (Set to US Military Standards)
- Lead (Set to EPA Standards, Think Flint Michigan water health crisis)
- Total Hardness, Total Chlorine, pH and Total Alkalinity (Many municipalities use chlorine to “purify” their water. Alkalinity and pH of the body must stay within a narrow range to be healthy and accordingly, in recent years, the scientific community places increasing importance on the alkalinity of the food and water we consume.)
AquaDx features include:
- Real-time detection of toxic chemicals in drinking water
- Tests for pesticides, heavy metals and other neurotoxin chemicals to the US Military Exposure Guideline (MEG) for Safety
- Easy to use, pass/fail results within six minutes
- Handheld, battery operated, fits in your back pocket
- Track your data, share on social media, print results
AquaDx provides its users with a Total Toxicity Profile™ (TTP), a proprietary measurement that reports a Pass or Fail based on the presence of neurotoxic chemicals in water at concentrations that exceed the US Military Exposure Guideline (MEG) for drinking water (assuming 7-14 day exposure, 15L/day consumption, 70kg person) and are below the estimated Human Lethal Consumption (HLC) guideline. This test covers key organophosphate/carbamate pesticides and toxic heavy metals.
Dramatic Boost to Earnings Power and Ensuring Safe Water for All
Commenting on the AquaDx launch, Daniel R. Yazbeck, MyDx Chairman and CEO, said, “Unlike our popular CannaDx analyzer, which addresses a rapidly growing $5 billion legal cannabis market whose product quality is largely unregulated, the AquaDx analyzer potentially addresses everyone on the planet who drinks water.
“The Flint Michigan poisoned water health crisis is only the most recent and highly publicized incident of its type; there are many others,” he added. See the July 28, CNN article featuring MyDx on this subject at: http://money.cnn.com/2016/07/28/technology/water-contamination-flint-cdx/index.html.
“While AquaDx is highly anticipated to provide a dramatic increase to our earnings power, this launch is especially gratifying for myself and all MyDx employees at a personal level given that everyone, worldwide, should have access to clean, safe drinking water. AquaDx will empower consumers to test their water safety in a simple and practical way,” Mr. Yazbeck concluded. “I invite all MyDx shareholders to share in the pride and satisfaction of helping to commercialize the important health benefit our AquaDx will provide consumers globally.”
