Smart Sampler Concentrator


Sixsenso aims to change how microbiological water quality is monitored worldwide bringing the lab to the origin of water contamination by rapid microorganism monitoring tools.

SX-CON is a microorganism concentrator module. It  provides a high concentration factor, it is portable and easy to use.  It has been designed, optimized and validated concentrating E. coli, Enterococci, Legionella bacteria (among others) and phytoplankton, in complex water matrices.

Avoid time-consuming pre-enrichment steps using a Smart Sampler Concentrator.

SX-CON’s outcome is the eluted sample containing the microorganism of interest. Which is compatible with most microbiological assays, including standard or fluorescence microscopy, Lateral Flow Device (LFD) assays, Defined Substrate Technology (DST) based assays, Surface Resonance Plasmon (SPR)-based assays, Immunoassays, cell culture assays and molecular assays as Polymerase chain reaction (PCR), Fluorescence In-situ Hybridization (FISH) and Nucleic Acid Sequence Based Amplification (NASBA).

Filter large volumes of water and elute them in a few milliliters to easily increase the initial microorganism concentration, enhancing assay sensitivity and sample representativeness. 

SX-CON is portable with large battery autonomy, and robust, suitable to be used in the most challenging outdoors’ environmental conditions or simply operating in the laboratory.
