rqmicro develops high-quality reagents and instruments for microbial tests. Water labs, as well as other sectors benefit from test kits and instruments designed by rqmicro in order to detect Legionella in less than 2 hours instead of up to 14 days.
rqmicro AG, based in Zurich, Switzerland, develops and markets proprietary reagents and innovative instruments for rapid microbiological tests in water and food. rqmicro uses the great potential of microfluidics to deliver a product that allows for a highly efficient separation of target from any sample matrix, using immunomagnetic separation (IMS).
The rqmicro lab-on-a-chip technology delivers in less than 2 hours reliable and accurate results that correlate to the standard plating method with higher sensitivity and minimal standard deviation.
The vision of rqmicro is that consumers worldwide benefit from water and food which is free from microbiological contamination. A crucial step towards realizing that vision is to detect various pathogens in a quick and accurate way. This is why the rqmicro team developed a technology that delivers quantitative test results at an unmatched speed.
