Investing in the future of diagnostics
At Biotangents we are developing solutions to some of the biggest global challenges such as food production for a growing population, antimicrobial resistance and climate change. In developing improved diagnostic capabilities, we are part of powering the growing momentum of major technological trends and drivers. By creating new means for personalised medicine, harnessing machine learning in our algorithms and using synthetic biology to invent new biomolecular systems we are at the forefront of scientific and technological innovation. Investment in Biotangents is more than a stake in a company with international growth potential, but an investment; in a sustainable, smarter and healthier future.
