This collaboration will focus on the development of new tests that will optimize patient care by providing sensitive and accurate test results within only 75 minutes. The collaboration will bring together SCIENION's core competencies in ultra-low volume liquid dispensing, assay miniaturization, and microarray manufacturing with Greiner Bio-One’s innovative Genspeed® testing system.

Dr. Holger Eickhoff, CEO of SCIENION AG, states: "We believe combining our expertise and sciFLEXARRAYER technology with Greiner Bio-One’s Genspeed® platform may enable us to bring personalized healthcare to the next level. We look forward to collaborating with Greiner Bio-One on this exciting development to optimize treatment outcomes for patients."

"We are looking forward to this collaboration to address the significant market need in the detection of human pathogens utilizing our Genspeed® platform", said Dr. Max Sonnleitner, Head of Rapid Testing Technologies/ Business Development at Greiner Bio-One Diagnostics. "Similar to our Genspeed® MRSA testing system, all jointly developed future tests have the potential to become very successful on the market".
