The foundation

Three international patents from day one

From 1993-1998, seven scientists from the Department of Biology at the University of Aarhus in Denmark received approximately 1.5 million Euro for research and technological development, primarily from the 4th European Frame Program of the European Commission.

During this period, a series of innovative sensors and measuring principles were developed. Three were subsequently patented internationally. In keeping with the aim of The European Commission to market the new developments, Unisense was founded in 1998.

Spinoffs so far

Interacting with some of the world’s leading scientists has led to spinoffs of new subsidiary companies:

  • Unisense FertiliTech was founded in 2003. Some years later, the company brought the medical device EmbryoScope® to the market. The company was sold to Vitrolife in 2014.
  • Unisense Environment was founded in 2013 and is fully owned by Unisense. This clean-tech company develops measuring equipment and knowhow for optimizing wastewater treatment while minimizing carbon footprint.
