Our Story

Lewis Collins, our CEO, was working on spore trapping as part of his microbiology studies when he thought:

“Why is it so challenging to analyse airborne disease? By the time you’ve received the data, it’s already too late to avoid an outbreak”.

With his mechatronic engineering cap on, Lewis had a vision of automating the process so that growers could get a real-time understanding of the minuscule pathogens in their environment.

This vision has expanded to an overarching passion for improving global food security and creating a world safe from airborne pathogens.
