Greiner Bio-One is specialised in the development of innovative molecular biology analysis methods. These include the biochip or DNA-array, a carrier medium accommodating a large number of biological or biochemical tests in a very compact space. This key technology enables biological and pharmaceutical research to clearly identify bacteria and viruses, for example, using the specific genetic fingerprint, thus achieving faster, more reliable diagnosis.

Greiner Bio-One's HTA technology (High-Throughput microArraying) offers one of the first platforms for diagnostic use in microarray technology. It allows a multitude of individual tests to be performed in parallel in a small set of biological sample material. Laboratory and test facilities in industry, science and research use these innovative carrier materials for faster and…
