Mycometer was founded in 1998, by Dr. Morten Reeslev and Dr. Morten Miller as a spin-off from a research group at the University of Copenhagen. Today, Mycometer is the world's leading company within rapid methods for quantification of mould and bacteria in the indoor environment. Mycometer also experiences a rapid growth in the market for quantifying bacteria in water.
Our first product, the Mycometer®-test, for measuring the level of fungal biomass on surfaces, was presented to the market in 1999. The Bactiquant®-water test for quantifying bacteria in water and other liquids was presented to the market in 2007. Two new products were launched in 2009; Bactiquant®-surface which is a method for quantifying bacteria on surfaces after flooding's and Mycometer®-air which is a new method for measuring the level of mould in air samples (spores, hyphal fragments and micro fragments).
Mycometer A/S holds several patents and registered trademarks. A subsidiary, Mycometer, Inc., was opened in Tampa, USA in 2009. In 2015, Mycometer is successfully bringing its technology to Singapore and the rest of Asia through its new sales office in Singapore.
