Biotangents, a veterinary diagnostics company based on Pentlands Science Park, has been selected as a finalist in the Animal Health Innovation 2021 Showcase, the sector’s premier investment forum.

Biotangents is a finalist in the Production Animal & Animal Agri-Tech category which will highlight the development of the company's industry-changing mastitis on-farm/in-clinic diagnostic device for which they are currently seeking a strategic corporate partner.
