Barefeet Analytics aims to deliver innovative, cost-efficient and futuristic analysis solutions with unmatched excellence towards value addition and regulatory compliance.
The food analysis market in India presents a huge opportunity. Currently, the export markets for example USA, EU are highly regulated while the Indian markets are catching up to meet the food safety standards. There are numerous challenges in the economics and logistics of food analysis with significant rejection rates and losses in the export market. Compliance in the Indian scenario is challenging due to several reasons including the scale of operations needed. Barefeet intends to leverage its teams’ diverse and sound understanding of both the scientific and business aspects to provide potentially disruptive solutions for food analysis. However, we realize that there is a lot of learning ahead of us while we manoeuvre the path to commercialization. We have developed solutions for high-throughput analysis of pesticides and antibiotics from milk & grapes and successfully demonstrated the validation on field trials.
We also provide tailored made mass spectrometry-based solutions in the broad domains of chemical and biological analysis.

In BIG grant, Barefeet Analytics successfully demonstrated the method to screen samples for residual compounds/contaminants in milk using laser desorption ionization mass spectrometry LDI-MS . Using the same platform we simultaneously developed method for pesticide analysis in grapes and completed the small-scale field validation on 20 acres of grape farm in Maharashtra. Aim is to scale-up the method for large-scale field validation on 500 acres of grape farm. With the developed method for pesticide analysis, large numbers of samples can be analyzed rapidly – about 20 times the throughput of existing methods. There is no chromatography involved eliminating expensive solvents and maintenance while saving valuable time.
