Green light from BlueLab to continue showering

Tübingen start-up develops automated measuring system for Legionella contamination.

BlueLab Wasseranalysesysteme GmbH has developed a fast, automated measuring system to detect Legionella. Installed in the pipework, the ingenious little device generates digital evaluation results. The start-up from Tübingen in the STERN BioRegion has thus devised a solution for the early detection of hazardous situations present in latent form in the drinking water pipes of virtually all buildings worldwide. Founder and developer Dr. Michael Jauss was recently awarded the Innovation Prize of the Council of BioRegions in Germany for his work.


“Dr. Jauss and BlueLab are making a key contribution to health protection. We hope this highly promising company will now find the right investors so that the product can be launched as quickly as possible,” says BioRegio STERN’s Managing Director Dr. Klaus Eichenberg.
