See the FLOW Solution in action

The Munich-based molecular diagnostic lab Becker, Olgemöller und Kollegen has grown rapidly since its founding some 20 years ago.

Throughput volume and sample variety have increased dramatically, while turnaround times have steadily sunk. Dr. Siegfried Burggraf relates how Becker and Olgemöller has partnered with Roche over the years to master these challenges.

“We started with about 5 samples, and now we have about 500 samples a day… We also have to provide many different assays for all kinds of pathogens, and you can’t do that manually. You need some kind of automation.

Head of Molecular Biology Diagnostics, Labor Becker Olgemöller und Kollegen
