Its enhanced chemiluminescence technology and systems offering immunoassay testing capabilities across menu categories of thyroid function, reproductive endocrinology, cardiology, anemia, metabolism, oncology and infectious diseases.
Our second business area is transfusion medicine. We have been a global leader in transfusion medicine for nearly 70 years. Our systems and products are among the most trusted in the world to ensure patient-donor compatibility and helping to protect the safety of the world’s blood supply by screening for disease such as AIDS, hepatitis and Chagas disease.
