About Us

Our Story

PreScouter was born out of one of the biggest food scandals in the world – the 2008 Chinese milk scandal, where milk tainted with melamine affected nearly 300,000 infants. While the world was struggling to find a way to quickly identify tainted milk samples, the technology that could do so was tucked away in a university lab.
The world was one technology away from a breakthrough that could have saved lives and spared the suffering of thousands of babies. This missed opportunity inspired the birth of PreScouter.

What Our Clients Say

PreScouter made us aware of 23 emerging technologies that we probably would not have become aware of otherwise

Dr Richard Demke,

Senior Director, Technical & New Product Development at Sunstar

It is much more cost-effective to have PreScouter provide the library, literary, and scientific informational research we need. Our staff's time should be spent making drugs.

Daryl Sauer

Senior Manager, Scientific Assessment at Abbvie

If you let them, PreScouter can come up with some pretty interesting concepts. It's the network and the concepts that really give PreScouter good value for the money.
