Why a vegan pregnancy test?

And why is it not vegan otherwise?

These are questions that many people ask when they hear about it for the first time. Rapid tests such as the Pregnancy Test rely on the interaction of detection molecules called antibodies. These antibodies bind to the surface of the test and also bind to the target molecule, the pregnancy hormone hCG.


Conventional antibody production involves immunizing a single mammal. To produce large quantities, antibody-producing cells are then used in several animals to amplify the antibody. In addition to animal production, antibody production is also possible in animal cell culture. However, this requires the use of animal components such as fetal calf serum (FCS) or bovine serum albumin (BSA). Both of these are derived from the blood of a living animal.

We have developed an alternative to eliminate animal testing altogether. With our vegan production in diatoms, we can save the lives of many animals. 15 million pregnancy tests are sold every year. We want to enable buyers to choose an animal-free and sustainable alternative to this emotional product.


Our Pregnancy Test is a medical device. That means it’s thoroughly tested and certified to give the right result. It’s a long way to get there – that’s why you won’t find our test online or in stores until 2025. If you want to follow our progress and learn more, follow us on Instagram!
