The team Microbia Environnement
First and foremost, Microbia Environnement is a complementary team of dynamic, highly-motivated and passionated scientists that fully invest for a sustainable protection of the water resource.
Committed to address tomorrow societal, economical and environmental challenges, we give the best of our expertise in molecular biology, ecology and microbiology to transmit risk prevention messages and to change current strategies based on “just reactive” policy, once populations face ecological disastres. With this in mind, our team assists customers through tailored collaborations responding accurately to their needs for diagnosis, surveillance and anticipation of problematic microbial proliferations.
Delphine Guillebault, PhD
« Understand erratic and sudden toxic microalgae blooms was already the common thread of my PhD work in cellular and molecular biology. I have been pursuing research on this topic for many years with successful development of highly-sensitive detection and monitoring systems based on molecular technology to target microorganisms causing environmental and public health problems, in marine systems first, but in freshwater as well. Willing to transfer this expertise, these novel and unique technologies, and the scientific know-how to serve a more general interest, I co-founded Microbia Environnement in 2013.
My objective is to take advantage of disruptive, high-tech, and social innovations to anticipate the risk associated with microbial proliferations. In a context of climate change, pollution from diverse sources, loss of biodiversity, such robust and powerful scientific tools are essential to preserve the water resource, protect water users and secure dependant economic activities.
By today, with a close team of devoted and passionate associates, I am tirelessly promoting our leitmotif “Move from risk management to risk anticipation”. We aim to bring our technology and our propositions on the water market, to improve current strategies used in the aquaculture, the water supply industry, and all the touristic or recreative sectors related to water. We hope to grow up and be visible on the international scene really soon, and ideally help moving towards a more high-tech oriented, respectful and eco-responsible era. »
