Measurement of aerobic organic matter «MB – BIOCOUNTER»
It is essential to monitor drinking, bathing and irrigation water because waterborne pathogens constitute one of the main risks to our health. Also, within the agri-food industry (i.e. washing vegetables water) this parameter becomes critical.
Online monitoring of the total microbiological concentration forms the backbone of health risk early detection systems, vital for safeguarding beaches from pollution, for example.
Rapid responses are vital to minimize the risks. It is not feasible to determine all types of aerobic microorganisms present in the analysed water due to the great variety of them, the high economic cost and the involved analysis time. WOLA’s solution is to detect the quantity of total microorganisms that allow us to know if the analysed water is adequate or not for a specific use.
Automated device for on-line monitoring to measure the total quantity of microorganisms concentration.
BIOCOUNTER has the following key features:
- Automatic water monitoring
- Eco-friendly usage.
- Short analysis time (15 minutes) at low operational cost.
- Online Control Interface: Access via mobile phone, website, tablet….
- Warning -above parameter limits- samples capture for an eventual/utter analysis in a laboratory.
- Self-cleaning device.
- Regeneration of the sensor microorganism.
- Excellent correlation with the classical analysis in laboratory «Petri dish»
BIOCOUNTER is a powerful and essential tool for sewage treatment plants, industries (pharmaceutical, chemical, etc.), irrigation, aquaponic, hydroponic, fish farming and aquaculture in their daily processes.
It is designed to detect fast and low operational cost for any microbial contamination in the food industry (beverage, dairy, etc.), and it is also an assistive technology for controlling a proper disinfection of ventilation circuits.

OPTIMIZE YOUR FISH FARM:
MONITORING BIOCHEMICAL – MICROBIOLOGICAL PARAMETERS IN “REAL TIME”
Online Monitoring of essential parameters to know an optimize metabolic and microbiological processes in applications such as: Biofermenters, Fish farms, Obtaining metabolic bio-products, Bioreactors, Decontamination processes, Microbial Counting, Concentration of toxic effects, etc.
Don’t take a risk in your fish farm: monitoring of Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD). Quantify the Total Water Toxicity and the concentration of aerobic living microorganisms in «real time» in your Fish-Farm and other water uses.
“Eutrophication is an enrichment of water by nutrient salts that causes structural changes to the ecosystem such as: increased production of algae and aquatic plants, depletion of fish species, general deterioration of water quality and other effects that reduce and preclude use” by the OECD
Water eutrophication has to be monitored to control and protect the functional balance that guarantees a process (Fish-farms, rivers, wetlands, reservoirs, etc.) The information provided by the three analytical biosensors developed by WOLA makes it possible to monitor with efficacy the eutrophication.
CONTROL AND OPTIMIZATION OF THE WATER USE – WWTW
A SOFTWARE DEVELOPPED SPECIFICALLY FOR THIS BIOSENSOR ALLOWS A REAL TIME MONITORING OF THE RESULTS.
You can know the contamination due to organic matter in water, and optimize the treatment process of your Waste Water Treatment Works (WWTW), in order to obtain the best results.
With our MB-BOD water samples at an inlet (red) and outlet (blue) of a waste water treatment plant can be monitored.
