With cutting edge technology and our team of world-class scientists, the company can provide insights for water, guts, lesions, sludge, and biofilms.

Amoung many other awards, Luminis Water Technologies was recently picked by Asia Pacific Agri-Food Innovation Summit as one of the most exciting disruptors in the market. The company is a featured tech provider with IPI Singapore, and they are Applications Partners with Oxford Nanopore Technologies.

Our Expertise

Led by CEO Rachelle Jensen, Luminis’ technology was originally developed for the non-profit organization Indigo V Expeditions which was focused on ocean health. Over the course of ten years, the group developed sampling strategies for water and swabs, including equipment, DNA extraction and sequencing protocols, algorithms, and techniques used to analyse and derive valuable insights from large sets of metagenomic data. The group was the first scientific team to characterise the microbiome across the Indian Ocean in their Nature Scientific paper which redefined how we view microbes in the ocean.

The team seeks to bring microbiome knowledge to the aquaculture industry to underpin sustainability and take pressure off the ocean.

Luminis Water Technologies has a dedicated team of scientists and bioinformaticians, and is backed by team of experts including Associate Professor Federico Lauro, a world-leading expert in microbiome dynamics, bioinformatics, metagenomics, and AI algorithm workflows.
