05 December 2022 | Monday | News

Since its foundation in 1972, HUMAN Gesellschaft für Biochemica und Diagnostica mbH has been developing and marketing comprehensive solutions for in vitro diagnostics (IVD). The portfolio ranges from classical clinical chemistry to innovative molecular diagnostic methods as well as special applications such as assays for autoimmunity testing.

  • From reagent specialist to global player with a broad network of long-standing distribution partners in more than 160 countries

  • • Covering a comprehensive product portfolio with more than 400 in-vitro diagnostic products in 12 segments

The German medium-sized company has its headquarters in Wiesbaden and its development and  production site in Magdeburg. In addition, HUMAN maintains regional sales offices in Singapore,  China, India, United Arab Emirates, Panama and has local HUMAN representatives in many other  countries. 

With its approximately 300 employees from over 40 nations, its worldwide service and delivery  capacities, and a broad network of long-standing sales partners, HUMAN supports medical  laboratories in more than 160 countries. 

"HUMAN has grown from a small reagent manufacturer to a global player in in vitro diagnostics,"  says Dr. Björn Breth, CEO of HUMAN since 2019. "For 50 years now, we have been helping to  improve healthcare in many places around the world. With our comprehensive portfolio, we cover a  wide range of regional needs, from semi-automated devices to fully automated solutions. Through  our logistics and services, we are a recognized partner to numerous governmental and non governmental organizations (NGOs) in support of medical care, particularly in crisis areas. We  remain committed to Germany as a business location, where we develop and produce the majority of products (reagents)." 

At the development and production site in Magdeburg scientists work with modern technologies on  further developments and innovations with a focus on clinical chemistry, hematology, hemostasis  and immunoassays and in compliance with the highest European quality standards. 

Sustainability is a particular concern for HUMAN as a responsible and future-oriented company. A  certified environmental management system has been established that meets the requirements of  the international ISO 14001 standard and the European EMAS directive. In addition, a resource efficient orientation is increasingly taking place in terms of energy generation: at its headquarters,  for example, HUMAN already covers over 86% of its annual requirements through renewable energy
