The close connection we have with our customers fuels our passion and drive for real and meaningful IVD innovation. Our mission: to improve and save lives through diagnostics. Because Every Test Is A Life™
Our innovation mindset is guided by the changing dynamics of diagnostics and the potential for the future.
As health care teams began grappling with the impact of the global coronavirus pandemic in 2020, we developed and marketed the first high-volume antibody and antigen tests for COVID-19 with Emergency Use Authorization by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
From launching the first product to determine Rh+ or Rh− blood type to developing the first tests for the detection of antibodies against HIV and hepatitis C to introducing the world’s first fully automated blood banking platform, we have helped shape immunohematology as it is known today.
We are dedicated to solving our customers’ challenges with customized solutions that help them deliver exceptional patient care today and meet the demands that the future holds.
Listening and collaborating are core to our innovation.
When customers told us that analyzer downtime was their number one concern, we developed technology that improved overall reliability to ensure that systems stayed up and running.
When hospitals told us that they needed help managing their workflow, we learned that adaptability was the higher priority to meet customer needs instead of a focus on throughput and turnaround and in turn designed the ORTHO VISION® Analyzer.
A blood typing mistake can mean the difference between life and death. Reducing the chance for errors and enabling the highest level of safety for blood and plasma transfusions is critical. We are the only company in transfusion medicine that provides both serologic infectious disease screening, as well as blood typing at both the donor center and at the hospital.

Fewer re-runs and re-draws
In diagnostics, system downtime can mean the difference between life and death. When minutes matter most to health care teams and patients eagerly awaiting results, we are there, delivering actionable test results on time, the first time, with 75% fewer re-runs and re-draws over competing systems, speeding patient diagnosis and treatment.
Protecting the environment and advancing sustainability go hand in hand with our mission of improving and saving lives through diagnostics. From products to packaging, we continually work to incorporate environmental improvements that reduce waste, provide a greener alternative and/or help eliminate water consumption.
It’s hard to imagine chemistry not requiring water, but in 1978 we brought revolutionary dry slide technology to clinical chemistry, empowering our customers to reduce their environmental footprint and save millions of liters of fresh water.
Our customers share our vision of helping to create a more sustainable and eco-friendly world. As we look ahead, we focus on reducing water, waste and energy while generating clean energy at our global facilities and incorporating environmentally friendly practices into our product manufacturing and packaging.
