Who we are

A sustainable approach to water management everywhere

Our approach is built on groundbreaking science that allows us to monitor bacteria levels in near real time. Doing so allows our clients to set up in-line process control, increasing their internal water quality control and providing quicker feedback loops in their production.

Ultimately, this results in a more proactive and efficient supply chain, producing less waste of a critical resource – water. At BactiQuant, we understand the dynamics of total bacterial mass in the water. Setting a robust baseline for the total bacterial mass can quickly identify water quality deviations, enabling us to consistently provide high-precision readings and alerts that provide rapid, reliable data. Ultimately, our secret lies in quantifying the total number of bacteria in the water. Hence the name, BactiQuant.

Our history

A company founded in science

BactiQuant was founded in 1999, but our approach has been in process and refined since 1988, when Dr. Morten Miller and Dr. Morten Reeslev founded their first business, Mycometer, at the University of Copenhagen.

Initially, the focus was zeroed in on the rapid detection and quantification of mold in buildings. However, since 2006, the same technological platform was adapted to develop new ways of quantifying bacteria in indoor environments and liquids. With this technological breakthrough, Mycometer launched its core product – BactiQuant.

Over the years, it became apparent that BactiQuant needed to be a stand-alone business if the market potential was to be met. As a direct result, Mycometer was split into two separate companies, leading to the foundation of BactiQuant in 2020. This was an entirely strategic decision to dive fully into the market opportunities within water analysis.

Our values

Revolutionize water quality

We have made it our mission to revolutionize water quality awareness. We do this because we want to enable a more effective and sustainable approach to water management everywhere.

 

Value
Operational & Relevant

We have created a business founded on robust science, which provides a different strength to our existence.
