Knowing the enemy is vital in the battle against disease. Diagnosis is therefore the first step towards a cure in the medical field. Thankfully, doctors today have recourse to a wide range of diagnostic tests that can give a definitive answer and hope of relief to patients plagued by uncomfortable or debilitating symptoms. One of the most innovative companies in this area is Czech biotechnology specialist BioVendor – Laboratorni medicina a.s. Founded in 1995, it specializes in the development and manufacture of in vitro diagnostic and for-research-use immunoassays, antibodies and recombinant proteins.
