Bacteria measurements in 2 minutes

Our technology

Fast, accurate and easy-to-use

Our novel technology for rapid bacteria detection

SBT has developed a new approach to enumeration of bacteria using a novel technology, impedance flow cytometry. Our technology can determine the concentration of intact cells in a sample.

Impedance flow cytometry is different from existing technologies by being fast, accurate, and easy-to-use.

Our products

Standardize your bacterial measurements with ease

We design user-friendly bacteria counters



BactoBox is a small benchtop device used for enumeration of bacteria within the entire bioprocessing production pipeline from the initial fermentation to the final quality control investigations. Grab sample, dilute, homogenize, insert it in BactoBox, press “Measure”, and BactoBox will provide a total bacterial concentration in 2 minutes. BactoBox is easy-to-use and standardize as a method. Training of new operators is typically completed within 15 minutes.

Our vision

Bacteria measured by everyone, everywhere


There are many applications and use cases where bacteria are measured today. However, there are even more applications and use cases where there is a huge desire to measure bacteria, but it is hindered by the fact that measuring bacteria today is slow, expensive, and difficult.

We are enablers and innovators. We enable people to measure and monitor bacteria everywhere through our novel detection technology that is fast, affordable, and easy-to-use. Having innovative products that are user-friendly makes it possible for everyone to use them, and as a result, everyone will be able to measure bacteria, everywhere.

Want to see it in action?

BactoBox is a small device that can easily be shipped around the world for trials, and the first-time user training procedure take less than one hour. Let us know if you want to have a quick online meeting to discuss the technical fit with your application and explore the potential trial opportunities.
