AN ENJOYABLE APPROACH TO MICROBIOLOGY
We are surrounded and colonized by an invisible yet diverse world of microorganisms. And we are part of that same ecosystem. Most of our invisible neighbours are harmless, some are beneficial or even essential for our survival, and some can be a nuisance or even a threat. The way we move through the world has a lasting impact on this microscopic ecosystem.
At Pinqkerton, our mission is to help you explore this invisible world and make it tangible, as well as helping you interpret, understand and decide what to do about what you discover.

REDUCING SPOILAGE AND INFECTIONS FOR A BETTER TOMORROW
Around 25% of all food produced globally is lost due to microbial spoilage, all whilst the global food industry conducts more than 1 billion tests per year*. Each year in the United States alone, more than 2 million people become infected with antibiotic-resistant bacteria, and despite the best efforts of medical and microbiology specialists, more than 23,000 people die as a result**.
Further improvements to rules, regulations and practices will only be able to go so far to bringing down spoilage and infections.
At Pinqkerton we believe that helping stake-holders understand the basics of the microbiological world, and their place in it, is a key part of building a better future.
