About the project

The general objective of ULISENS project is focused on the development and further commercialization of an automatic early warning system able to detect and quantify Legionella species in water.

The system integrates an innovative fast detection biotechnology with an automated module able to carry out “in situ” analysis in real-time to minimise time to results.

ULISENS reduces the legionellosis lethality from 12% to 2% because of TIMELY AND COST-EFFECTIVE INFORMATION to risk owners to take appropriate effective preventive measures as soon as possible.

  • Faster response time, reducing the time to a 99% result compared to laboratory tests
  • ICT early warning system to avoid infection risks in real time.
  • Lower cost, with reductions of up to 80% compared to standard laboratory tests
  • Direct sampling from the user’s network in real time, no technical staff is needed.
  • Biotechnology of sustainable detection without maintenance or generation of biological waste.
  • Great reduction of penalties and discrediting of the brand due to human infections.
