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.

Are you interested in running your own real-time PCR test using the Biomeme platform? Check out our full suite of end-to-end real-time PCR products - from DNA and RNA purification to running a test at the point of sample on a hand-held PCR thermocycler to finally analyzing your real-time PCR test results - here.
"Porting our assay over to the Biomeme platform was surprisingly easy. We tested out their sample prep technology with our samples, tried out their bulk lyophilized master mix with our primers and probes, compared their mobile thermocycler to our lab-bound machine, and after various tests with consistent results, decided to kit our assay into their Go-Strips to aid our field research."
