rqmicro AG, based in Zurich, Switzerland, develops and markets proprietary reagents and innovative instruments for microbial tests in water and food.

Quantify bacterial pathogens, for example Legionella, in less than 2 hours with the automated and highly specific rqmicro lab-on-a-chip technology. The rqmicro kits in combination with the rqmicro CellStream instrument guarantee optimal preparation of complex samples from the water and food sector based on immunomagnetic separation and microfluidics with a 10-40 times higher sensitivity compared to the standard cultivation method. In addition to a recovery rate of more than 80 % and a sample purity of more than 95 %, the rqmicro method detects viable but non-culturable cells and discriminates between viable and dead cells. The procedure maintains cell integrity and allows for downstream-analysis with a flow cytometer, by cultivating bacterial cells on agar plates, or for PCR.
The Legionella pneumophila SG1, Legionella pneumophila SG1-15, SG1-14 kits are now available. Currently under development are kits for the detection of:
•Legionella spp.
•Giardia spp. and Cryptosporidum spp.
