About SBT


Bacteria measured by everyone, everywhere

Welcome to SBT


This is our vision. 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.

To achieve that, we follow our core values:

We are driven to improve society

We want to introduce a global technology leap within microbiology measurements. We work hard to make our solutions widely available and we take pride in helping our community when we can.

SBT is people

Our success is entirely dependent on the collective energy and well-being of all members of the team. We value trust and flexibility in the workplace, and encourage initiatives that increase happiness.

Successful customers are everything to us

We want our customers to love our products. We focus on making our customers wildly successful, and we will do everything we can to generate as many happy customers as possible.

Knowledge creates smarter solutions

Knowledge is key to pushing technological boundaries therefore we are knowledge hungry, driven, and sharing. We value the independent and collective pursuit of knowledge and we recognize great ideas when we see them.
