The good news just keeps coming for Prestodiag, a start-up founded in 2012 to develop advanced INAC-ISB bacteria-detection technology. In the space of just a few months, Prestodiag won three awards for innovative start-ups, including one from the Génopôle Evry biotech cluster and one in the French Senate’s entrepreneurship competition.
Prestodiag’s fast-detection method is truly novel in the food industry. Both reliable and robust, it can be used for all types of solid and liquid substances, delivering results before the bacterial culture has been completed (24 hours). The fast results mean that contaminated batches can be pulled before shipping.
A team of INAC researchers is continuing to improve upon the process. Prestodiag’s first products should be on the market within the year.
