Biosensors for Cyanobacteria
Example of a 47-day summer monitoring with the Microcystis CARLA Kit in a reservoir lake in Spain, showing accordance of microscopy and biosensors for detection of cyanobacteria.
While microscopy data were generated only at the end of the campaign, the biosensors data have been recorded on the course of the campaign (results obtained in less than 3 hours after sampling)
Move from risk management to risk anticipation
Thanks to the CARLA unique technology, you can get the activity trends of problematic cyanobacteria in pounds, lakes, rivers or drinking water catchment sites. With appropriated time resolution, it is then possible to follow the population dynamics and predict what will happen in the next days/weeks like a “weather forecast” for water quality.

5 Biosensors for common harmful cyanobacteria
- Microcystis sp.
- Planktothrix sp.
- Anabaena-Aphanizomenon-Dolichospermum (ADA clade)
- Cylindrospermopsis sp.
- Phormidium/Oscillatoria (benthic cyanobacteria)
Some new biosensors are coming soon, e.g. Woronichinia, Nodularia…
