About BCF

Improving animal care with diagnostic imaging

At BCF, we are leaders in veterinary imaging. We believe in helping our customers improve animal care. We believe in ensuring our customers gain the most from their diagnostic imaging technology. Our team of over 100 people are committed to our core values of Partnership, Innovation and Learning. 

In December of 2017 BCF merged with the IMV Technologies Group.

Together these innovative and progressive businesses will be better positioned to deliver outstanding imaging products and services to our veterinary and animal clients throughout the world. We remain committed to providing the best equipment, advice, learning, customer care and technical support.

Ready for anything

All of our equipment is designed and manufactured in-house or sourced from the world’s leading healthcare and imaging providers. We are specialists in veterinary imaging including ultrasound, X-ray, digital image management (PACS), CT and MRI. Technology that is rugged, reliable and built to cope with the demanding environment of the farm, stable and veterinary practice.

Pioneers in veterinary imaging

BCF have been pioneers in veterinary imaging for over 30 years. BCF were the first to develop water resistant, wearable ultrasound scanners for cows that allowed the users to view the image on a head mounted display.

Established in Scotland with global headquarters in Bellshill near Glasgow, BCF have additional offices in Ireland, France, North America and most recently India. We also work with over 40 distributors across the world.

Sharing learning

As a vet, you never stop learning. Capturing and interpreting diagnostic images takes skill and confidence. Education is a vital part of the support BCF provides. We run over 100 training courses each year, with our radiographer and clinical team of vets also focused on developing free online learning materials.

Our equipment is designed to be tough and reliable, but in the unlikely event of a breakdown, our dedicated customer care team are there to provide support. BCF engineers are trained to exceptionally high standards and we have an unrivalled range of loan equipment available to keep our customers up and running. We also provide a range of service plans.

Giving back

We also support our local and veterinary communities. In 2012 we created the Vet Charity Challenge, an annual event that so far has raised over £100,000 for animal-based charities.
