Profile of Greg Mirams

Greg developed the original FECPAK in 1992 with the intention to empower farmers with a tool to measure parasite burdens on farm. Greg has gone on to lead a number of projects in the parasite management field including the S3 Project (Sheep Sustainability Strategy), the Cattletech Project, and has been a member of the WormWise extension committee.

Through 2006/09 Greg was a participant in the EU Parasol Project, where FECPAK was proven to reduce chemical inputs and improve animal performance. In 2010 Greg formed a new company, Techion Group Ltd. Techion, meaning ‘technology in action’, was established to develop FECPAKG2, which is an innovative new remote location online parasite diagnostics system.

The core technology used in FECPAKG2 was co-developed with the University of Otago. Techion Group’s FECPAKG2 is now partnered with Sainsbury’s UK, Ghent University, Swiss Medical Research Institute and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to name a few. Techion Group now includes a European based business and has continued to expand its research and commercial partnerships around the world.
