Mycometer develops flexible and versatile methods of documentation and delineation of microbial contamination in buildings and Water systems. Our technology is the Swiss knife of rapid microbiology allowing reliable quantification of microbes in almost all environments:
- on surfaces
- inside porous materials
- in water
- in diesel and slurries
- in air
Using the same analytical equipment, the Mycometer technology can differentiate between bacteria and fungi using different chemistry.
Mycometer technology is being used across 5 continents and improves the quality of life for millions of people around the globe every day. All Mycometer products are patented and trademarked by Mycometer.
The technology has been tested and verified by US-EPA (2011). Reproducibility was found to be very good with a relative standard deviation on the mean between 1.4 and 8.7 % when different assays and conditions were used. The calculation includes both variability on sampling, analysis, analyst and instrumentation.
Mycometer technology has been a DOD preffered technology with the US Department of Defence since 2010.
Mycometer technology is also used for verification of Water Hygiene in Professional Quality Systems ISO 22000/HACCP.
Mycometer technology is documented in peer-reviewed scientific publications and we enjoy close collaborations with the industrial, consulting as well as scientific communities.
For many applications the traditional cultivation methods are simply to slow, taking days to get results. With Mycometer products you get results within an hour. But getting fast results in itself is worth nothing if they are not reproducible or provide relevant information.
Mycometer assays has been developed to ensure the highest standards in the industry - focusing on both sampling and analysis as well as interpretation criteria.
In our contínued effort to provide high quality products we have always emphasised the value of education and training. To ensure the best implementation, all users need to go through a proficiency course. The course is included in the equipment price.
