This week we’re heading South back to my hometown, Sevilla! Even well into October, the skies are clear and the sun is shining while we drop by Biomedal, this week’s Biotech.
City: Sevilla, Spain
Financial data: €2.5M in sales with an impressive 60% growth in the last year
Mission: The company has three divisions: Biomedal LifeScience for research products and services, Biomedal Diagnostics for food security products and iVYDAL in Vitro Diagnostics for immune diagnostic focusing on celiac disease. The company has a wide range of products to test for multiple food allergens, including milk, egg, soy, peanut and many more. Its Glutentox technology, an antibody-based rapid test to detect traces of immunotoxic gluten in food and kitchen surfaces, is used by world leaders in gluten-free food.
Comment: Biomedal’s iVYDAL technology is the first diagnostic test that can verify if a celiac patient is following their diet. In a recent study, Biomedal showed that 40% of patients do not comply without being aware of it. With the test, people with celiac disease can now have better control of their diets and improve their health in the long term!
