PHILADELPHIA and LEIPZIG, Germany, May 20, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Biomeme, Inc. and INDICAL BIOSCIENCE announced on Wednesday that they have entered into an exclusive global licensing and research agreement in a joint effort to improve animal health globally. Biomeme has been primarily developing advanced mobile PCR detection technology for biothreat and environmental surveillance over the last six years. This partnership reinforces their role in these respective fields while further extending their end-to-end mobile PCR technology into the animal health and animal protein production spaces.
INDICAL, formerly QIAGEN's veterinary diagnostic business, and a leader in advanced testing systems for safe, reliable identification of pathogens in poultry and livestock, will immediately adapt Biomeme's molecular point-of-need testing technology for its veterinary and animal protein production customers. "With this technology, we introduce a new, yet easy-to-use solution to veterinarians, clinics, government agencies, and the food industry that solves time-sensitive and location-sensitive problems where results need to be in real-time and actionable without a lab or its infrastructure," said Dr. Fredrik Ullman, CEO of INDICAL. "Biomeme's connected devices, cloud portal, and API technology all uniquely enable the digitalization of farming, empowering our customers with GPS-tagged, real-time test data for monitoring and surveillance."
"We're thrilled to partner with INDICAL and combine their twenty years of experience preventing and monitoring animal diseases with our full suite of end-to-end mobile molecular solutions in an effort to advance One Health initiatives," said Max Perelman, Biomeme's Co-Founder and Business Lead. "By leveraging their experience with our PCR platform, we expect this collaboration to significantly strengthen our clients' capabilities in real-time pathogen identification and animal disease surveillance, by bringing the lab to the sample."
