Biotechnology and Sensing for Food Safety and Health - Research and Innovation

About Us

BioTechSense is the brand of BTS - Biotechnology and Sensing for Food Safety and Health, Lda., spin off of BLC3 Association - Campus of Technology and Innovation.

BioTechSense emerged from iFungHeath - Fungi Innovation Solutions for Health, Lda. established in 2013 with the main purpose of developing solutions and knowledge concerning fungi toxicity and safety. The broad range of applications from the development of base products and services, has led us to expand our mission and goals towards a wider variety of raw products.

BioTechSense arises as a response to the growing consumer demand concerning food safety and quality. To ensure that products reach this target, a set of standard protocols must be regulated from the producer to the final consumer and an adequate monitoring through control systems must be certified.
