A revolutionary technology

Diamidex has developed a patented technology based on fluorescent marking allowing to target many specific microorganisms

The Diamidex technology: a combination of culture, fluorescent marking and revolutionary optical equipment

Diamidex has designed patented solutions for targeting only certain specific microoganisms. Thanks to a cutting edge technology combining the use of culture and fluorescent marking with a revolutionnary optical equipment, it is now possible to make microorganism visible sooner than with the traditional method, at their very early stage of microcolony.

One technology, many microorganisms detected

Our patented technology allows to target many microorrganisms of interest:

  • Legionella pneumophila
  • Alicyclobacillus spp.
  • TAMC
  • TYMC
  • Coliforms
  • Pseudomonas Aerigunosa
  • … 
Culture: the only reliable method to detect and count microorganisms

Culture on a Petri dish, the Louis Pasteur’s method, has been the most effective way of identifying and counting microorganisms since the 19th century. To date, this thechnique still remains the reference method in many industries to detect and count mircoorganisms. Its principle : extracting the microorganisms from a sample, putting them on a dedicated Petri dish, containing the “food” they need to grow, then wait. Once they have multiplied enough, they get visible to the eye, and can be counted. Though reliable, this method is long (up to several days according to the target microorganism).
