Introducing BactoBox®

Bacteria measurement in 2 minutes

Our technology

Fast, accurate and easy-to-use

Our novel technology for rapid bacteria detection

We have developed a new approach to bacteria measurement, using a technology called "impedance flow cytometry". Inside a microfluidic flow-cell we are able to detect all types of bacteria, distinguishing them from mere particles and dead cells, based on their electrical properties. This differs from existing technologies by being both fast, accurate, easy-to-use and affordable.

Our products

A user-friendly approach to bacteria detection

We design user-friendly bacteria counters



BactoBox is a small and easy to use benchtop device for measuring bacteria in contaminated water and pure cultures. Simply insert a sample, press “Measure” and BactoBox will provide a total bacteria count in 2 minutes. No extensive training or complex work procedures required.

Our Vision

Bacteria measured by everyone, everywhere


There are many applications where bacteria are measured today. However, there are even more applications 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.
