Our Mission

As a company it is our mission to provide our customers with solutions to the challenges associated with plant pathogens detection. We aim at supporting customers at any point of the diagnosis process: from obtaining the DNA till the detection and identification of the targeted pathogen.


Founded in 2011  as a joint Dutch Initiative from Wageningen University and Dutch Sprouts, we were born with the intention of offering agricultural laboratories a turnkey solution for plant health diagnosis, in particular, pathogenic nematodes. The conserved morphology of nematodes means that their identification requires expert knowledge. Current nematode analyses are mostly based on microscopic examinations with limited throughput, sensitivity and specificity. This hampers standardized control for quarantine nematode species in importing and exporting countries. What is the alternative?

Operating from Wageningen, The Netherlands, we are always searching for the answers to your needs either by creating unique new products, by continuously improving the existing ones or by providing support to your process. Do we have what you are looking for? Get in touch with us. We are eager to create new opportunities with you.
