Our History

ZEV Biotech was founded in Argentina in October 2017 by Maximiliano Irisarri, a specialist in Molecular Biology. He made the decision to dedicate his life to creating a technology that would solve all the infrastructure problems that hinder 90% of the world’s access to cutting-edge Molecular Diagnosis.

Our team of professionals is driven by a bold vision that goes beyond geographical limitations and has a strong purpose: to close the existing global gap in access to molecular diagnosis.

To achieve this goal, ZEV embarked on the path of creating its own innovative technology for molecular diagnosis, which is designed and adapted to the reality of all laboratories and patients.

This groundbreaking technology, the result of years of dedication and scientific expertise, is poised to make a significant impact in the field of medicine. With IRIS®, we are changing the game, enabling precise and personalized molecular diagnosis like never before seen.

What is IRIS® ?

We want every individual, regardless of their geographical location or economic situation, to have access to personalized medicine and the benefits it brings.
