We designed BactoBox to help users get fast bacteria measurements where they are needed: Close to the action. It has a small footprint to fit in most places, is user-friendly to avoid extensive training and still delivers accurate total bacteria counts in just a few minutes. Grab a sample, insert it in BactoBox and press measure. Simple as that.

BactoBox is designed to measure bacteria in water directly and in pure cultures and some liquid products with simple sample preparation. It measures all bacteria, including endospores and difficult-to-cultivate bacteria.

The core technology

Measuring bacteria using impedance flow cytometry

BactoBox® measures bacteria using Impedance flow cytometry

SBT_Explainer-03

BactoBox employs a new approach to bacteria measurements called Impedance flow cytometry. Inside a microfluidic flow-cell, bacteria in the sample are detected and distinguished from particles and killed cells based on their electrical properties. It differs from existing technologies by being both fast, accurate, easy-to-use and affordable.

BactoBox is bringing value to customers in a range of application

BactoBox is bringing value to customers in a range of applications

Water monitoring

BactoBox has been successfully employed to monitor bacteria in raw-water, build-up of bacteria in cooling water and bacterial control of process water. This empowers users to spot bacteria before they create issues in their processes.

Clean-in-place validation

BactoBox is being validated to monitor CIP processes by measuring bacteria in rinse water. This allows users to ensure all bacteria have been eliminated before starting a new production batch.

Pure culture control

BactoBox is currently being validated for controlling bacterial fermentations and starter cultures. This allows users to keep accurate control of their bacteria numbers in production or lab environments.
