We are dedicated to developing high-quality and cutting-edge sample collection products for infectious diseases, human genomics, environmental and forensic applications, along with high-end automated workflow solutions.
Today, we are still eager to continue this innovation, providing quality products, customized services, and prime solutions to improve patients’ health.
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.
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.
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.
