Apidiag is a diagnosis tool using bee as a bio-indicator in order to measure environmental pollutants.

"With a thousand of flowers visited daily, bee is an amazing environmental sampler."

ADVANTAGES OF APIDIAG
RELIABLE

A bee colony daily forages around 10 million micro-samplings

• On plants • In air • In water
SENSITIVE

Bees report pollution in environment really finely

ADAPTABLE

Beehives can be set up in all environments, including the cities

FAST

A diagnosis can be established within one month1
