Company Profile

Our Mission

If there’s a way to do it better, let’s find it:
this is a motto we’ve made our own.
Our ideas drove 40 years of progress in the field of
preanalytics, leading to more and more reliable diagnoses.
We are the first stepping stone in a process
aimed at good health.
We build on the innate enthusiasm and commitment
in our partners and us.
We live for the deep connection between
the human beings behind the professionals.
Our hearts and minds band together to reach
higher and newer goals.

Preanalytics made different

Our holistic approach

The path to a correct diagnosis is an intricate weave, where every thread makes the difference.
Preanalytics is the primary and fundamental wrap of this weave, as no top-grade futuristic assay will get back what you lost during a poor sample collection, transport, or processing.
Hence our comprehensive approach to preanalytics: from sample collection to image analysis and data management, we accompany your precious sample to the edge of impeccable diagnostics.


Over 40 years of people-focused innovation

But how did this happen? First, by answering the need for accurate and trustworthy diagnoses with meaningful products, ideas, and connections.
Second, by understanding that innovations could come and go, but the value you give to people lasts forever.

Back to back at the vanguard of preanalytics

We are honored to have great partners worldwide, with whom we built a strong and effective network. Relating to their challenges and needs, we nurtured thriving human relationships.
