"The ALVIM biofilm sensor helps us to monitor both the distribution and the effectiveness of sanitation treatments. We have discovered things we didn't know about our process"
Quality Manager of a Beverage Company
  "Even the technical staff who doesn't know anything about bacteria has been able to apply this biofilm detection system with good results, after a short period of use"
Water Treatment Expert
"Results indicate that ALVIM probes enable to detect the biofilm growth in the early stages. The biofilm monitoring will aim to better control biocide injection and reduce operational costs"
TOTAL E&P - Nicolas Lesage, Eric Tournis, Thibaut Carron-Cabaret, Lucas Juven, Simon Vecten, Pierre Pedenaud. Oral communication at Desalination for the Environment: Clean Water and Energy 2016 (Rome, Italy)
  "Benefits of ALVIM technology:
· Optimize biocide injection and minimize the biofilm growth
· Compare biocide treatments : chemicals, protocols, mode of injection
· Reduce the number of chemical cleanings and the quantity of biocide used
· Detect early upset information such as injection failure, chemical issue
· Adapt chemical treatment to variation of the operating conditions

TOTAL Staff. Oral communication SPE-174562-MS, SPE Symposium on Water Handling and Management 2015 (Galveston, TX)
"Thanks to ALVIM Biofilm Sensor, the duration of chlorination needed to get a non-fouled system was divided by 6. It means that the energy demand is as well divided by 6"
Laurent Delauney, Ifremer
  "PH Water Technologies have utilised Chlorine Dioxide along side Alvim Biofilm sensors in large data center cooling towers to great effect"
Paul Gueran, Head of Water Treatment Equipment Division - ph Water & Air Technologies Ltd.
"Having compared lots of various measuring devices available on the market, we decided for ALVIM. We were also able to prove if we add our compounds to e.g. backflow water at low ppms after, there will be absolutely no buildup of biofilms and therefore no deposit growth. "
Oswald Brandstetter, Managing partner IDEPS GmbH
