What we do

Innovation: We use our proprietary Semeion IQ™ chemical ecology platform to take early-stage concepts and novel IP through to commercialisation, bridging the gap between fundamental scientific discoveries and the need for new technologies to address the world’s biggest public health challenges.

Contract Research: We conduct independent laboratory evaluation and clinical trials of public and veterinary health products, including diagnostics, insect repellents, insecticides, lures and other vector and pest control products. We offer support from initial assessment and experimental testing in the laboratory to clinical trials and field studies to support product development and registration.

Social impact: We run educational programmes and large-scale behaviour change and intervention studies, working closely with the WHO, Ministries of Health, local and national governments, NGOs and industry partners to build capacity and instil good vector control practices in households and communities.
