A Portable device for on-the-spot detection and identification of bacteria

Cytecom is developing a novel detection point system that can discern whether bacteria are present in a liquid solution and critically whether those bacteria are alive or dead, all within a matter of minutes. Our technology can be used for research purposes and will improve the quality of drinking water through rapid monitoring by saving time, money and keeping the population safe.

HOW IT WORKS

Our patented technology allows a user with minimal training to assess whether bacteria are present in a solution and critically whether those bacteria are alive or dead in a matter of minutes.

The technology works like an EKG for bacteria. By using a fluorescent dye, live bacteria light up when the electrical signal provided by our device is switched on.

Our new technology overcomes the many limitations of other techniques used to monitor bacteria within water and other critical environments.

APPLICATIONS

Cytecom are currently developing our bacterial monitoring technology for research use as a microbial electrophysiology system for determining live / dead status in experiments.
