Oculyze, the world’s premier platform for mobile image analysis and BIOTECON Diagnostics, a renowned food and beverage quality testing provider have announced the signing of a strategic partnership. The agreement signed at the corporate offices of BIOTECON Diagnostics in Potsdam, appoints the Company as the exclusive global distributor of Oculyze’s latest technological innovation the Oculyze Better Brewing (BB) 2.0.
