OUR TECHNOLOGY

The proprietary and patent pending VPCIR technology detects food pathogens by detecting enzyme activities expressed specifically by the pathogen. This novel approach to pathogen detection carries several benefits compared to standard techniques such as PCR and ELISA:

FOOD SAFETY

Food safety is valuable – not only in terms of life quality but also economically. The number of food pathogen tests performed has doubled in the last decade. This number is expected to be close to 400 million by 2024. Due to the benefits of VPCIR compared to other techniques we plan to disrupt the current test market.
