up the soil. They recently purchased EDF Energy, a UK electrical distribution company part of the French EDF group, which was one of the initial EUREKA project beta-testers. "Their clean-up contractor tells us we have saved them hundreds of thousands of pounds," says Bell.

An expanding business

In the UK alone, the chemical soil testing business is worth over 220 million a year ($350 million). But with lab tests costing up to 180 and taking up to two weeks to provide results, the SST offers clear cost advantages. At 15,000, the SST is a significant investment, but the initial cost is balanced by the speed and accuracy of the device's results, and the subsequent cost per test is much lower than traditional lab testing.

But Bell's team is not about to stop at testing soil for carcinogens. The SST could be developed to detect other pollutants such as heavy metals, radioactivity, and disease pathogens. Bell is currently negotiating the development of other detectors with partners from Europe, the US, Canada, Brazil and the Middle East, related to military and government.

"We have also signed a commercial collaboration agreement with the UK Health Protection Agency (HPA) to develop biological biosensors that could pick up highly dangerous pathogens, such as anthrax, but some of this is very secret as it's the government," says Bell, with Bond-like discretion, before jetting off to another hush-hush international meeting.
