VPCIR biosciences ApS is a biotechnological spin out of Aarhus University and the Chinese University of Hong Kong. The company is founded by four researchers who together have invented a new and better laboratory method to detect disease-causing bacteria in food. The method - Viability Polymerase Circle Reaction, or VPCIR - is patent pending and utilizes the fact that the composition of certain enzymes in the bacterial cell constitutes a unique fingerprint. The VPCIR method is inexpensive, very sensitive and fast, easy to use, and therefore convenient in a laboratory. VPCIR is therefore a very competitive alternative to current methods.
