The Future of
Rapid Food Safety Testing

Offering ‘one-work-shift’ results in 2-6 hours testing food samples
for pathogens like Listeria, Salmonella, Campylobacter and E.coli.

VPCIR biosciences is a start-up biotech company set at disrupting the food safety industry.
We base our solutions on a novel proprietary and patent pending technology for detection of
food pathogens:
‘Viability Polymerase Circle Reaction’ or VPCIR ™ .


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 Immunoassays:

The World is talking!

“Danish biotechnology startup VPCIR is currently building proprietary and patent-pending novel technology: viability polymerase circle reaction (VPCIR), for the detection of food pathogens. The VPCIR technology detects enzymes expressed specifically by a pathogen. In comparison to conventional techniques like polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), this approach to pathogen detection is faster, adds higher sensitivity to assays, and also detects living pathogens.”
