Biosensors for Marine Microalgae
Spring-summer 145-day monitoring of Pseudo-nitzschia at a oyster farm site (French atlantic coast) with the CARLA Kit, showing good accordance of biosensor data with microscopy and anticipation of bloom occurence.
Move from risk management to risk anticipation
Thanks to the CARLA unique technology, you can generate the activity patterns of HAB-forming microalgae. With appropriated time resolution, it is possible to predict close-future trends as a “weather forecast” for water quality.
A technology under the patent WO 2020/058291 A1

M.A.R.T.A. : to evaluate the risk of microalgae proliferation with a complete diagnosis
M.A.R.T.A. is a microarray platform (lab-on-chip detection test) enabling the identification and the estimation of the activity of the toxic microalgae most commonly observed in marine environments, i.e. an overview of 30 genera/species.
A technology under the patent N° WO 2015/008011
Based on site characteristics, our team designs specific workflows to follow the algal community overtime, focusing on critical periods to adjust the alarm threshold.
