Terrabio is the first mobile genetic analyser on the agri-food market. The device autonomously performs amplification, detection and interpretation of results based on the proprietary genetic identification system. The diagnostic system makes it possible to conduct tests in the field of agriculture and food safety through a quick identification of pathogens or genetic mutations. With the Terrabio device, the user receives a semi-quantitative test result indicating the presence of pathogens in a sample in just about 60–90 minutes. Currently, farmers have to wait up to 14 days for the result of any test performed with highly precise genetic methods.

The technology of the Terrabio analyzer is based on a patented heating, measurement and detection system with excellent thermal and energy parameters and the gold standard in pathogen diagnostics – real-time PCR. This solution will not require constant, low temperature storage of the test kits, and the test is performed on the field, without the need to transport the test sample.

The Terrabio solution is effective in almost 99.9% in the detection of any pre-defined pathogen in the field of plant diseases and the safety of water and food. No existing off-laboratory solution offers comparable sensitivity, specificity and cost effectiveness.



Turnaround time (from specimen collection to result reporting): up to 90 minutes.


Groundbreaking ease of use


It is enough to place the tested material in the reagent tube, add a buffer after 5 minutes and transfer the sample to the test tubes.


Wide range of applications


The analyser can be used by agri-food businesses, food manufacturers and distributors, farmers, veterinary surgeons, agricultural advisors and many more.



Identification of up to 16 pathogens during a single test.


Forecasting platform


Thanks to the advanced, Artificial Intelligence-based techniques, it will be possible to predict an increase in the number of pathogens based on the forecast of atmospheric conditions over subsequent days.



The device works independently and automatically: it is enough to apply a drop of biological material iinto the extraction tube and place it in the analyzer. The device will perform the test automatically and display the result. The test result can also be sent to an e-mail address.

When assays are performed with Terrabio, up to 90 minutes will suffice to discover whether any pathogen from the tested list is present in a test sample and whether it can be harmful to the crop or consumer health.


Possible test materials include:

  • water

  • soil

  • food

  • crops

  • any biological material

How TERRABIO works?


It is enough to place a plant fragment or around fifteen milligrams of soil in the reagent tube, add a buffer after 5 minutes and transfer the sample to the test tubes. The first version of the device is able to perform 4 concurrent tests. Test results are available after 60–90 minutes. The Company has started work on the second version of the device, which will enable a quick identification of up to 16 pathogens at the same time, and offer a simplified analysis procedure combined with a forecasting platform.
