Genemis Laboratories Inc.
Genemis Laboratories Inc (Genemis) is developing new rapid microbiological testing techniques and systems. We are developing simple, inexpensive, and fast water testing products and services for microbiological testing, with applications in food, pharmaceutical, travel and other industries. Our proprietary platform technology allows us to produce engineered nanoparticles with multiple potential applications in diagnostics and chemical and microbiological detection. Our competitive advantage is the high sensitivity and accuracy of the test, with a relatively quick response time (within minutes), which makes this technology ideal for field application as well as real time inline water monitoring and control.
Our first product, AquaVial bacteria test kit, is a visual limit test designed for use in the field to determine the water’s level of microbial contamination. Aquavial detects common bacteria such as E.coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, species of Shigella, Enterobacter. In addition, AquaVial can also detect fungi such as Trichopyton and Microsporum, known to cause Athlete’s food disease and nail infections, as well as Candida albicans.
For industrial applications AquAssay offers the ability to quantify bacteria and fungi between 500 and 20,000 CFU/ml, and is particularly useful in optimizing and monitoring water treatment systems when response time is critical.
