Coliphages

New microbial parameter for water quality assessment

Rapid Kit

High level water quality testing has never been so quick.

Training Days

An excellent opportunity to learn more about coliphage enumeration and the evolving regulatory landscape in water microbiology.

Bluephage is a Certified B Corporation!

We are committed to our vision of Safe Water for a Better World and our mission to help millions of people worldwide get safe water for drinking and agriculture. These are the social, economic, and environmental sustainability goals that we aim to reinforce with the B Corporation Certification.

BCorp Certified
Bluephage is a biotechnological company specialized in producing testing kits to identify faecal and viral indicators within water. We use newly patent-protected technology to detect coliphages within the water.

Water without these coliphages is considered pathogen-free, and more importantly, safe drinking water.

million hospitalizations

due to waterborne pathogens

“The World Health Organization, the US-EPA, and the European Commission have recently recognized the coliphage test as a new viral indicator. The presence of coliphages equals tainted water; the absence of coliphages means safe water. This is because bacterial indicators, still widely used, have significant limitations and inefficiencies, especially when looking at viral pathogens in water.”
