WHO WE ARE:

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.

TECHNOLOGY:

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.

PRODUCT INNOVATIONS:

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.

TECHNOLOGY

FAST, SIMPLE, AND AFFORDABLE WATER TESTING

Our proprietary platform technology allows us to produce engineered nanoparticles with multiple potential applications in diagnostics and chemical and microbiological detection.

Because of the high sensitivity of this technology to the charges into the bacteria cellular wall, our initial focus is microorganisms detection. The same technology however can be customized for detecting heavy metals, pesticides, viruses, water born parasites, chemicals such as ammonia, and various other contaminants.

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. In the in-line monitoring applications, out technology allows us to detect microbial contamination levels as low as 100 CFU/ml.

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 most common bacteria such as E.coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, species of Shigella, Enterobacter, Mycobacteria, and many other. 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 we developed Aquassay, a quantitative version of the test that 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.
