Microbia Environnement provides managers of water resources with an early warning system based on genetic biosensors to anticipate the environmental and public health risks associated with microbial proliferations.
The genetic biosensor technology represents a new responsive solution for water managers, that greatly improves the means for waterborne microorganisms surveillance thanks to its multiplexing and high-throughput capacity.
Our biosensors come in an ultra-rapid colorimetric assay format contained within a set of reagents (CARLA Kits). Available in 7 different versions, they offer an efficient and unprecedented way of detecting and quantifying the activity of the most frequent harmful cyanobacteria and microalgae.
When used at high-frequency, this unique technological approach allows a proactive risk management by generating near real-time data. This societal innovation represents a game changing tool for early warning systems but also for screening programs, and for the follow-up of prevention actions or restoration of degraded ecosystems.
Our solutions are made for drinking water suppliers and utilities, territorial authorities, water managers of recreational sites, aquaculture and agriculture professionals, water quality analysis laboratories and environmental consulting firms willing to implement or to offer self-monitoring and early warning systems in order to anticipate environmental and health risks associated with microbes in water.
