Water quality control made fast and easy –

Results in only 20 minutes with online microbiological monitoring

Precise bacteria count in minutes instead of days

Green petri dish

Routine water surveillance still relies on old plating methods (HPC), requiring many days to give a result and detecting only 1% of bacteria.

Alternatively, 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, but it also significantly decreases the costs per analysis.

BactoSense is a good measuring instrument we've been using for two years. BactoSense has taught us much about our groundwater aquifers and has allowed us to move the new well/pump sites to an even better location (hydro-geologically better). The groundwater quality is safely and reliably monitored.
