Biocheck.Gent founded


On November 23th, 2021, the fourth spin-off company of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine was founded: Biocheck.Gent BV.

This new company is based on research from our unit for veterinary epidemiology and herd veterinary medicine on quantification and advice on biosafety in farm animals. The Biocheck.UGent measurement system that was previously developed is now used at more than 30,000 companies in more than 70 countries. The spin-off project was prepared with the support of the IOF (Industrial Research Fund) and Provaxs. Through this new spin-off, the founders want to stimulate the use of the Biocheck.UGent system throughout the world.

After Mexellence (which specializes in udder health and mastitis management), Imaqua (which focuses on shrimp health research and services), and Pathosense (which focuses on the development and implementation of new diagnostic methods for veterinary medicine), Biocheck.Gent will positively contribute to the economic and social valorisation of research at our faculty. Together, the 4 spin-offs will propagate the name and fame of Ghent University and our Faculty of Veterinary Medicine throughout the world.
