Pioneer in liquid handling and diagnostic tests

Biohit’s roots extend back to the 1970s, when Professor Osmo Suovaniemi established two companies, Labsystems and Eflab. They developed the first single and multichannel high-accuracy pipettes with adjustable volumes as well as instruments based on vertical photometry.

The basis of Suovaniemi’s development work, that has set an example for small and even larger companies, has been an aggressive innovation and patenting strategy. In line with this strategy new products were developed, company size increased and kicked off exports.

From day one, the companies relied on high technology, the best expertise in the industry and an international approach.
