Fuel test provider Conidia Bioscience has launched a mobile app that will work alongside its FuelStat microbial contamination test kit. The free FuelStat Result app works with iPhone and Android devices and allows operators to complete compliance testing on site, without registration, verifying fuel test results and preparing a professional report that can either be printed or emailed.
Once fuel samples have been collected, the app uses the phone’s camera to interpret the results. As the user lines up the test kit with the outline on the camera screen, the app will verify the results and provide an instant indication of the fuel’s level of microbial contamination using a simple “traffic light” system. The app will also give an alert if the results are close to a threshold, helping the user determine the next test interval.
The app will also keep a record of the previous 10 test results on the device. If the user wishes to register on the app, their details are automatically entered in the reports and the results are then transferred to a secure portal.
“From taking fuel samples to having the test report ready to send can be completed on site in as little as 15 minutes compared to sending samples to a laboratory, which can take up to 10 days," said Myrsini Chronopoulou, Conidia’s research and development manager.
