Indical Bioscience enters strategic partnership with pioneering air sampling technology company

Indical Bioscience, part of Vimina’s diagnostic segment, has signed a global development and distribution agreement with AeroCollect, a company specializing in air sampling technology for the early detection of pathogens in veterinary diagnostics

Indical Bioscience, the operating company within Vimian’s diagnostics segment, has signed a global development and distribution agreement with AeroCollect. AeroCollect is a Danish company specializing in air sampling technology for the early detection of pathogens in veterinary diagnostics. The partnership is expanding Vimian’s offering within the producer and food safety market.

AeroCollect is a fully owned subsidiary of the Danish government-approved Research and Technology Organisation FORCE Technology, which developed the air sampling technology. The technology has shown great potential in recent years and is currently used in the poultry, swine and mink industries and today has over 60 customers in 14 countries.

Through the partnership Indical Bioscience will take charge of global sales and distribution leveraging the current commercial network and jointly continue to leverage the technology into new applications and solutions for other segments.

“The partnership with AeroCollect will expand our portfolio in the producer and food safety market segments and can be leveraged to develop solutions for other segments. The pioneering technology will facilitate easier, faster and more accurate sampling in vet diagnostics to support our ambition to improve animal health globally”, says Stefano Santarelli, CEO of Indical Bioscience.

AeroCollect works by pulling a flow of air through a small sample chamber. When collecting samples, high voltage is applied to the test chamber. This creates an electric field across the sample chamber that captures and concentrates bacteria, viruses, and other microscopic particles in the sample chamber. The sample chamber is then sent to the laboratory where the content is analysed for pathogens using a qPCR analysis. The results are ready within one to two hours.
