    • PIKA Weihenstephan GmbH is a spin-off from the Technical University of München-Weihenstephan. It was founded by scientists of the section 'Technologie der Brauerei II' (Chair of Brewing Sciences) and is specialised in the development, production, and sales of detection systems for microorganisms, mainly based on PCR technology. In the beginning, the company focused on the detection of microbial spoilers which may occur during food production, especially the growth of bacteria in drinks like beer-spoiling lactobacilli. New products for the detection of various microorganisms in different organic sample materials are continuously developed. Besides R&D and the production of kits, PIKA Weihenstephan GmbH offers custom analysis for the detection and identification of contaminating microorganisms as a service.
