The evaluation of microorganism survival is currently based on cultivation assays or more recently with PCR methods. Plate counts are time-consuming and biased by the fact that some microorganisms remains viable but non cultivable.

On the other hand, a PCR method is a promising approach, but replication of non-viable DNA gives false positives. Now is possible to stain dead cells prior to fixation and store the sample until the analysis. Welcome to vPCR.


GenIUL was founded in 2014, between IUL and IB-as to significantly contribute to the development of viability PCR.
