Happy Holiday (Newsletter December 2016)22. December 2016
Happy holiday from rqmicro
We look back on an exciting and successful 2016 and are looking forward to interesting new challenges in 2017.
The CellStream device, successfully launched in the spring, allows rapid detection of Legionella within 1 to 2 hours. Laboratories in Switzerland and abroad rely on the rqmicro Legionella kit in combination with the CellStream.
New regulations, such as the monitoring of cooling systems, require innovative solutions. rqmicro provides the answer in the form of intelligent lab-on-a-chip technology, which detects pathogens in water samples quantitatively and with high specificity.
The rqmicro team continued to grow in 2016. With lots of physical effort and creativity, we have created ice sculptures at our Christmas party, which are connected to our mission in the field of microbiological safety of water and food.
We would like to sincerely thank you for your trust and we are looking forward to a lively exchange, productive cooperation and to meeting you personally at trade fairs or in your laboratory.

rqmicro AG closes Series A financing round9. June 2016
Pioneer in rapid detection solutions for water and food safety gains new long-term investor to accelerate market expansion and grow product pipeline
Zürich, Switzerland – June 09, 2016. rqmicro AG, founded 2013 as a spin-off of the ETH Zurich, secured significant funding from a family investment office based in Switzerland. rqmicro develops and markets rapid microbial detection solutions for applications in water and food. The financing round will enable rqmicro to accelerate the market roll-out of its first instrument series, further grow the product pipeline and expand the team and operations. The private investor is fully aligned with rqmicro’s vision to improve microbiological water and food safety worldwide with a newly developed rapid test technology. The funding round comes in the midst of the market launch of rqmicro’s CellStream instrument. Laboratories benefit from the revolutionary yet easy-to-use instrument and test kits to quantify specific bacteria using their existing flow cytometry hardware. rqmicro’s first test kit enables an accurate count of Legionella bacteria in drinking water. Legionella are water-borne bacteria which can cause lung infections when inhaled. While the current standard method takes more than 10 days to detect these bacteria, rqmicro’s rapid detection method delivers results in less than 1 hour.
Dr. Hans-Anton Keserue, CEO of rqmicro AG is confident that the Series A round will enable the company to create significant value: “It’s a great timing and I’m looking forward to work with our new investors. We share a mindset of bringing real change to the water and food safety industries and we’re in there for the long-term. It’s a great sign of confirmation and support for our exceptional team and will help us to accelerate our growth and to further develop key partnerships in our industry.”
