Y Microbio Logo SupHiRes - Jonathan Sierra Yarok Microbio makes a technology for fast detection of dangerous bacteria (E.coli, Listeria, Salmonella, etc.) for the agri-food sector.

Based on a new multidisciplinary approach, Yarok gives accurate results in 45 minutes instead of days and in a work-shift time frame.
