Highly superior
platform technology

AquaSparkTM is a groundbreaking platform technology based on uniquely designed synthetic molecules. Their design enables the detection of live bacteria using a chemical light reaction known as chemiluminescence. The molecules consist of a central ”light-emitting” part and a bacteria-specific substrate. The target microorganisms produce enzymes or other hydrolysis triggers which – when exposed to our patented technology – will cause the AquaSparkTM to split. Subsequently, this results in an emission of photons which a simple light sensor can measure.

Chemiluminescent light produced by AquaSparkTM is 1000 times brighter than traditional molecules. Consequently, this makes our N-LightTM solution a cutting-edge technology for sensitive detection across a wide range of applications. Due to the AquaSparkTM modular toolbox's virtually endless possibilities, the N-LightTM platform can be tailored to detect any chosen microorganism such as bacteria, parasites, viruses, or fungi.

pioneering
phage technology

Phages are small biological machines that efficiently and specifically kill bacteria. NEMIS has developed unique bacteria-specific enrichment broths containing cocktails of bacteriophages in order to selectively eliminate competing microflora. In other words, this unique enrichment broth enhances the growth of targeted pathogens in a single enrichment step. As a result, NEMIS was able to achieve increased specificity and sensitivity of N-LightTM rapid tests.
