Water quality control made fast and easy

Results in only 20 minutes with online microbiological monitoring

Precise bacteria count in minutes instead of days


Routine surveillance of water still relies on old plating methods (HPC) that require many days to give a result and detect only 1% of bacteria. On the contrary, modern technologies like BactoSense are fast and accurate. 99% of bacteria are counted in just 20 minutes.

Plug and measure –  easy water monitoring anywhere

Don’t bring your sample to the lab, bring your lab to the sample!
With our fully automated Flow Cytometer, assuring the required level of water quality has never been so easy. Online monitoring not only gives a result 70 times faster than HPC it also significantly decreases the costs per analysis.
