SIXSENSO offers portable devices for in-situ highly-specific and rapid ( 30 min – 3 hours ) microbiological analysis of water samples.


Microbiological assessment in water is complex and not rapid enough, 

•Standard analysis need specialized laboratories – Complex

•Trained and qualified personnel needed – Expensive

•Samples poor in representativeness (few millilitres) – False Negatives

•Results take several days (1-12 days) – Time is money


•Rapid simple and on-site microbiological analysis

•Easy of use – Simplicity 

•Representative – Concentrate large volume on site and reduce false negatives.

•Results in 30 min-3 hours allows fast decision making and cost saving

•Cost effective – Saves money
