A Hidden Champion

They can’t see it. You can’t see it, but we are there.

PROMICOL is a Hidden Champion for 20 years. Keeping daily used products safe without the end user knowing it.

PROMICOL is a privately owned corporation that operates in the biotechnology industry. Established in 2000 with a vast amount of experience, PROMICOL is an expert in all aspects of ATP technology, providing systems that enable you to rapidly screen for microbial contamination. Our products are manufactured according to the highest laboratory production standards, ensuring products of consistent quality.

Technology

PROMICOL is producer of a large array of (patented) products for rapid testing of microbial load.

The ATP rapid test is based on the ATP bioluminescence method. The reagents from PROMICOL microbial ATP detection kits remove all sources of ATP except of microbial ATP which is afterwards specifically measured by bioluminescence reaction. In case no microbial ATP is present in the sample the reaction cannot occur and the sample is identified as sterile. The light produced is measured and expressed in Relative Light Units (RLU).

ATP (Adenosine TriPhosphate) is an energy molecule found in all plants, animals and microbial cells. It fuels metabolic processes such as cellular reproduction, muscle contraction and plant photosynthesis.
All organic matter contains ATP.

Innovation is at the core of what we do

 

We are actively involved in developing new technologies, as well as constantly reviewing and updating our own technologies.

With our focus and mindset, we aim to meet customers rapidly changing needs.
