Furthermore, the company commands a broad technology base, which it has drawn on to stimulate and promote fundamental new developments in medical laboratory diagnostics. Examples are the molecular biological synthesis of designer antigens, the computer-based immunofluorescence microscopy (CAIFM) and the development of multiparameter microarrays for the identification of gene polymorphisms and pathogens.
