Click4Tag, start-up from CNRS and created in december 2014, specialized in detection / enumeration / rapid identification of pathogenic bacteria.

Identification et de dénombrement rapide de Legionella pneumophila, bactérie responsable de la Légionellose.

Click4Tag results from the development of academic research works leading by Sam Dukan (Institut de Microbiologie de la Méditerranée, Laboratoire de Chimie Bactérienne (CNRS,Aix-Marseille University)) and from Boris Vauzeilles (Institut de Chimie des Substances Naturelles (CNRS), Institut de Chimie Moléculaire et des Matériaux d’Orsay (CNRS/Paris Sud University)).
