Our vision is that consumers worldwide benefit from water and food which is free from microbiological contamination. We identified three strategic priorities required to move the state of microbiological analysis towards our vision:
Replace manual steps with automated workflows
Reduce process risks and variability of outcomes
Focus on creativity rather than routine tasks
Create trust in high-value, safety-monitored water infrastructures, food and beverage products
Ensure water and food safety monitoring close to consumers and immediate reaction in case of contamination
Predict test outcomes and maintenance using machine learning algorithms and artificial intelligence
Interface with smart infrastructure/IOT environments
Implement a web-of-trust between devices for automated safety monitoring and action-taking
Deploy blockchain technology to store and share safety-critical, validated data
Rising technologies, such as theinternet of things, predictive analytics using machine learning and artificial intelligence and blockchain technologies have direct influence on the future of microbiological analysis. The synergy created by various competences of our team members allows us to develop ways to organically integrate these revolutionary technologies into rqmicro products.
Already now, rqmicro products provide an elegant and innovative solution for microbiological analysis, allowing the replacement of several manual steps with one automated instrument. This reduces the risk of human error in routine tasks, creates resources for the much needed creativity in the R&D world and delivers an unmatched ease of use for lab professionals.
