SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) Research Solutions

Research – Vaccine & Anti-Viral Drug Development – Manufacturing QC – Testing

It is our mission, especially in this global health crisis, to support our customers in their efforts to create a healthier world, a safer environment and more efficient manufacturing processes.

With our solutions for SARS-CoV-2 research, our customers can automate and standardize repetitive steps around the development and implementation of in vitro microplate assays. Our microplate readers, microplate washers and automated ELISA systems help scientists around the world to understand the virus and to develop new test methods or effective vaccines. They are also used in quality control during production, e.g. of antibody ELISA kits or antiviral drugs.

Our teams are hard at work to minimize the risk of potential disruption caused by COVID-19 and to support our customers as usual. Thanks to our risk management program, we are currently able to meet all customer expectations with regard to product delivery and availability.

COVID-19 Statement



We have made considerable efforts in recent months to rapidly expand our production capacity to meet the increased demand for our COVID-19 research solutions. But all the hard work of our teams would have been pointless and useless if we did not have suppliers who make the impossible possible. Suppliers who do everything they can to ensure that we get the materials we need on time.

It is only thanks to your efforts that we can provide our customers with the system solutions they need to research COVID-19, develop new drugs or vaccines, and build testing capacity in a timely manner. In doing so, you help to ensure the safety and health of all of us!

We want you to know that we appreciate all your efforts and professionalism and look forward to continuing our business relationship with you.

Thank you for your continuous support. Together, we will get through this difficult time!
