The BactoSense has taken industrial microbiological water quality measurement to new heights.  Flow cytometry was first used for microbiological activity in water analysis in 1968. This break-through enabled process and plant managers to obtain water quality data within 3 hours, up until then, traditional heterotrophic plate counts had been used - taking as long as 3 days to provide the requisite data.
