Company Summary

Prestodiag has developed an innovative system for rapid detection of multiple bacteria in complex matrices. Our innovative optical technology allows simple and rapid detection of dozens of pathogenic bacteria in real time, during their growth phase and in one-step. This allows food manufacturers to shorten drastically time-to-result, from a few days to a few hours. They can hence ship their products safer and faster than with existing methods.
