Investing in Tech to Advance Food Safety
Jerri Lynn Pickett, Associate Director of Lab Services
As part of Tyson Ventures’ core investment strategies, the Tyson Ventures team looks at companies focused on engineering innovative and sustainable methods of supplying protein to a growing population. Clear Labs’ focus on food safety, speed and accuracy makes sense to us.
Clear Labs has built a platform that’s automated intelligent next generation sequencing dedicated to food safety testing. To the layperson, this means a Clear Labs machine is able to test multiple samples at once, then read and compare those samples to a giant database and return results in minutes. Current technologies give a positive or negative within 24 hours, but to get more detailed information requires additional testing over four to six days.
We’re excited about the direction of this technology and equally excited to be working with Clear Labs. My hope is that Tyson Ventures continues to make investments in other innovative food safety technologies in the future.
