This further enhances BBI’s position as the world’s largest diagnostics components company with a market leading antigen portfolio.

The UK-based business, which has manufacturing sites and sales offices across four continents, will integrate DIARECT’s state of the art manufacturing facility in Germany, to establish a Centre of Excellence for recombinant antigen development & manufacturing in Freiburg.
