LimCo International GmbH


Since 1998 we offer expert service, research and development of innovative products for water quality assessment, monitoring and restoration in surface water (freshwater, marin), drinking water and waste water. We participate in and lead projects in international cooperation with academia, industries and governments around the globe. Our worldwide unique LimCo BioSensor system (LBS) based on the established Multispecies Freshwater Biomonitor (MFB) continuously detects and monitors effects of mixtures of pollutants, thus allows to detect even unknown substances in due time before pollution irreversively spreads in the environment or even harms human health.
