MiProbes makes food safety testing fast and simple. Food contamination leads to illness, loss of consumer trust, expensive recalls, and lost product. Food and beverage companies cannot completely eliminate product recalls because current testing methods for contaminants are too slow. Using advanced synthetic biology, we speed up the time to result for food safety testing by 10x, allowing customers to take immediate action to prevent brand damage. We have completed a trial with a €2B+ food and beverage company and have two project contracts in negotiation to continue prototype development at our Berlin lab. Nina Patrick was the first employee and senior scientist for two biotech start- ups in Silicon Valley. She created a library of 50,000 biosensors with associated patents which are currently under acquisition by a leading synthetic biology company. She received her PhD from the University of Arizona in 2015. Max Mundt completed his PhD at the Max Planck Institute, where he developed tools to improve the predictability of biological circuits to facilitate a wider range of synthetic biology applications. Max co-founded the German Association for Synthetic Biology and briefly worked as a scientist-in-residence at a VC firm.
