Spore.Bio is a DeepTech company developing a new generation of microbiological detection devices. Bacterial contamination is a rising threat for Food&Beverage, Pharma and Cosmetics manufacturers. The weapons they have to fight these threats are long, constraintful and painful to use. Spore.Bio is solving this pain by combining advanced photonics and Machine Learning to detect bacteria within a few seconds.
Major scandals recently rocked the Food & Beverage sector all around the world, because of bacteriological contamination in food products. Every year, 800 food recalls are registered only in the US, costing approximately $10 million per recall. Conventional bacterial detection methods, such as Petri dish and PCR-based tests, take on average five days to produce results, which does not help manufacturers to correctly assess contamination risks.
Spore.Bio are developing the first instantaneous pathogen detection device that is directly usable on the shopfloor, combining cutting-edge optical solution with advanced machine learning models. Within six months, Spore.Bio developed their first functional prototype in their lab, and are already implementing it on the shopfloor with their first customers.
