Magnomics is featured in Animal Pharm

“Portuguese firm Magnomics won the 2015 Innovation Award at the Kansas City Animal Health Corridor (KCAHC) Investment Forum.

Magnomics received the Innovation Award for its ‘lab-on-a-chip’ diagnostic, currently designed for the detection of bovine mastitis.

The firm claims the device can detect four types of bacterial DNA, with the potential to detect for other strains in the future, which it said makes the diagnostic unique compared to other products currently on the market because it can give more specific detail about a possible infection.

In addition, the company believes its diagnostics has an advantage over other solutions on the market because it can provide the benefits of lab-based testing but on-site.

Chief executive of the firm, João Pereira, told Animal Pharm: “Off-site you have the molecular-based and the culture-based tests. The molecular tests are fairly quick but quite expensive, and have logistics surrounding them. The culture tests can be slow. We can provide the benefits of molecular and culture diagnostics on-site within two hours.” ”
