LimCo International:

Your partner for worldwide scientific research projects

Our experience from more than 30 years cooperation in numerous international scientific research projects is an excellent support for your water quality applications. We develop innovative methods and tools for in-situ and ex-situ operation of aquatic biomonitoring systems for scientists, authorities, agencies, companies and environmental engineers.

Our research focusses on aquatic ecology and ecotoxicology, biotechnology, biology and environmental sciences.  We offer regularly interesting and challenging projects for theses (BC, MSC, PhD) and practical stages for engaged students from environmental sciences (biology, chemistry, ecology, ecotoxicology, environmental technology, -management, etc.).

As scientifically experienced partner of large and international research & development projects LimCo International is always interested in worldwide cooperation in the areas of water quality, waste water, drinking water, groundwater, aquaculture, ecotoxicology, aquatic ecology and river restoration/protection.

Guest researchers we offer our online biomonitors in our laboratory for their short-term visits to perform scientific studies with our toximeters aiming at joint publications.
