The Mycometer technology is based on the finding that it is possible to identify enzyme activities that characterizes certain taxonomic groups of organisms. In 1999, the Company launched the Mycometer®-test for measuring the fungal biomass on surfaces. This test is based on the finding that the level of an enzyme activity ( β-N-acetylhexosaminidase, NAHA) correlates with the level of ergosterol, a known indicator of fungal presence. Later investigations have shown that a broad range of randomly chosen fungi contain very high levels of this enzyme activity, which seems to be ubiquitous in fungi. Bactiquant®-water for quantifying bacteria in liquids was launched in 2007. This product is based on the targeting of a bacterial hydrolase activity which correlates with bacterial biomass in a wide range of water samples. Today, Mycometer holds several patents and trademarks. The Company's technology has been verified by the United States Environmental Agency (US-EPA).
