BioChek, which offers innovative and user-friendly veterinary diagnostic tools, announced that it has acquired BIOTECON, a German company specialising in the development and manufacture of PCR (polymerase chain reaction)-based solutions for food-safety diagnostics.

The merger creates a new, leading global player in veterinary and food-safety solutions, targeting mainly the markets of meat, egg and dairy, as well as baby food, chocolate and beer & beverage. The synergetic product portfolios of both companies create an industry-unique range of services.

"This allows us to offer a complete diagnostic management solution from farm to fork for our customers," says Barend van Dam, founder and CEO of BioChek, which is part of the EW Group.

"Food safety starts with healthy animals. We are proud that with the acquisition of BIOTECON we can now cover the whole chain, starting with the monitoring of animal health, through management of safe processing to the final consumer product".

With over 20 years of experience as a specialist in animal health, BioChek utilises state-of-the art products and systems to monitor and optimise the health of swine and poultry.
