Our Vision

Our vision is a healthier world for all animals.

To reach this goal, we want to empower veterinarians to make timely and effective treatment decisions based on reliable test results.

We aim for a sustainable improvement of animal and human health by reducing the risk for antimicrobial resistances, contributing to disease control and by reducing the suffering of sick animals and their owners.
