Andrew Parnell's start-up wins UCD award

Prolego, a start-up founded by Andrew Parnell, Belinda Hernández and Mahdi Amina, has won University College Dublin’s start-up of the year award.

Prolego Scientific’s tests are used in a variety of areas such as improving animal health and performance metrics. The tests in turn improve the quality of the food chain. For example, in the poultry and aquaculture markets, the tests can be used to predict metrics such as meat tenderness, resistance to antibiotics and protein yields.

Hernández said the award was “an honour” and a “great acknowledgement of our work, success and progress to date”.
