“Expertise in early warning of harmful micro-organisms proliferation in environmental waters”
Microbia Environnement is a specialized biotechnology company in molecular diagnosis for environmental microbiology and helps organizations, which want to secure their water resources and anticipate the microbial risk. Our company proposes biosensor based solutions to anticipate toxic microalgae blooms in brackish and seawaters.
Our company proposes biosensor based solutions to anticipate toxic microalgae blooms in brackish and seawaters. Our products, as competitive and innovative solutions, allow fast, reliable and cost effective detection of different worldwide toxic algae.
Harmful algal blooms represent a serious threat to aquatic ecosystems, human health and local economies. This phenomenon is globally increasing throughout the world in terms of events incidence and toxic algae species involved. Rapid and reliable detection and identification of harmful algae have therefore become a fundamental requirement in monitoring programs as an early warning system to prevent social, health and economic damages and to secure aquaculture and tourism industries.
Our biosensor solutions are conceived as early warning systems to enhance decision making in order to achieve a sustainable water management. Our biosensors increase the analytical capacity for detection and quantification of microbiological contaminations through a high frequency and effective monitoring of environmental water quality. They are very useful to design a daily and cost-effective monitoring of the water resource in the recreational and shellfish farm sites to prevent any serious socio-economic problems, to secure and guarantee water quality.
