In 2001, bioMérieux SA acquired the Organon Teknika diagnostic division from Akzo Nobel, which resulted in a direct presence in four of the Nordic countries through subsidiaries. In Norway, however, a bioMérieux subsidiary had already been established in 1999.
bioMérieux Nordic is a sales company and 100% owned by bioMérieux SA (France). Our company is a leader in in vitro diagnostics, i.e. diagnostics of infectious diseases. bioMérieux has products in two main customer groups: clinical diagnostics and industrial microbiology. Clinical products are sold primarily to hospitals and health clinics. Industrial microbiology products are mainly sold to pharmaceutical- and food industries.
In 2004, the four regional offices in Denmark (bioMérieux Denmark Aps), Finland (bioMérieux Suomi Oy), Norway (bioMérieux Norway AS) and Sweden (bioMérieux Sweden AB) were merged into one organization - the bioMérieux Nordic Region.
