Microbe Detectives provides comprehensive microbial evaluations for water quality and disease management. We apply advanced DNA sequencing to identify and quantify nearly 100% of the microbes in a sample of water, delivering actionable insight. Existing technologies such as culture or microscopy can only identify about 1% of microbes or less. Microbe Detectives is a graduate of the Water Council’s BREW accelerator and a winner of the Wisconsin Innovation Awards. The company was founded in 2013 by Trevor Ghylin during his Ph.D. work at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Applications in wastewater served as Dr. Ghylin’s original inspiration for founding Microbe Detectives. Other target applications include drinking water, process water, and recreational water.
