Climate change and growing urbanisation exacerbate the stress on water networks and the imbalances in supply and demand. bNovate offers solutions for all who urgently need fast, simple and cost-effective ways to ensure that vast quantities of water are clean and safe.

The speed and automation of BactoSense's detection of bacteria in water have the potential to have a massive positive impact in both the municipal and industrial space.

“We look forward to supporting the company's growth, especially in the Americas and APAC regions. The speed and automation of the BactoSense technology in detecting bacteria in water have the potential for massive positive impact both in the municipal and industrial space.”
