About Us

Aquagenx provides portable microbiological water quality testing products that detect potential health risks to help eliminate waterborne diseases due to contaminated water.

He was Kenan Distinguished Professor of Environmental Sciences and Engineering in the Gillings School of Global Public Health at University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, where he taught from 1974-2018. Dr. Sobsey serves on a number of global committees and working groups in WASH.
