Dated diagnostic practices result in incorrect infection treatment with antibiotics of dairy cattle upwards of 50% of the time. The company has developed a novel diagnostic method based on newly discovered chemistry that enables a comprehensive and cost-effective diagnostic tool to reduce incorrect treatment.

The underlying technology allows an unprecedented flexibility in design of analyses (using DNA and non-DNA based biomarkers) and a 10x reduction in analysis time. The technique is particularly suited to working in remote locations where laboratory level cleanliness cannot be achieved, f.ex. on-farm.

The technology allows the company to bring the most recent advances from human medicine to the industrial veterinary practice.

The company’s first product targets the dairy industry. Incorrect usage of antibiotics alone results in net losses of 10 mio. DKK just in Denmark. The first goal of the company is to eliminate these losses. Worldwide, the first indication/commercial application is 6.7 Billion DKK problem.
