Facing the increasing threat of harmful microorganisms that can proliferate in both fresh- and marine waters,  Microbia Environnement  strives to develop  innovative, reliable, cost-efficient monitoring  and  early-warning systems  for the benefit of water resource management, fish and shellfish industry, public health, environmental protection and impacted economy.


For all the players of the water sector, there is an increasing demand for reliable information regarding the  microbes-associated risk . And that in real-time, to be able to engage actions, to inform policy makers (authorities, local political representatives, governments), in order to finally provide more transparency towards the public, who in the current context, is showing growing concern. 

Combining expertise in  environmental microbiology  and  molecular biology , we at  Microbia Environnement  have developed an advanced technology based on  genetic biosensors  to detect with a very high sensitivity microorganisms in water. We have focused – but not limited – our R&D on biosensors targeting  toxin-producing microalgae and cyanobacteria
