At the forefront of innovation
HEATSENS is based on a revolutionary nanobiosensing technology owned by the company, whose main characteristics (highly sensitive, rapid detection and simplicity) are the ideal response to a clear need in this sector to test for Salmonella.
Salmonellosis is the second most commonly reported gastrointestinal infection, requiring hospitalization in many cases, and it can be fatal. One of the most common ways of contracting it is by eating contaminated chicken meat; thus meat companies are required to carry out periodic tests, for which they send samples to specialist laboratories that have a response time of up to 7 days for the analyses, which may mean financial losses. Our easy-to-use device makes performing in-house testing possible throughout the production chain, providing companies with greater control over product quality and avoiding losses associated with contamination not detected in time, all at a lower cost than current test today.
