January 9, 2018 | Israeli water tech company Lishtot, Hebrew for “to drink,” won first place at the CES Startup Night competition in Las Vegas on Monday night, on the eve of the CES 2018 annual conference, the largest tech and innovation tradeshow of its kind. The Jerusalem-based startup that develops and builds products to detect for drinking water contamination, was up against 15 other companies. Each had 60 seconds to showcase the technology, which Lishtot CEO Netanel Raisch did by testing two cups filled with water with the company’s TestDrop Pro. The handheld device detects for “contaminants such as E. coli, lead, arsenic and chemicals,” and is being showcased it at the convention. Lishtot says it also developing more products such as the TeStraw, “which can distinguish between different contaminants and concentration levels,” and the TestPipe, a device that attaches to faucets for “real-time advanced water monitoring.” Lishtot was founded in 2015.
