It's all about cells

Miltenyi Biotec products and services benefit the biomedical research community worldwide

In 1989, a success story began in Bergisch Gladbach near Cologne: MACS® Technology was developed, an efficient and reliable method to tag and separate cells magnetically. Since then, the Miltenyi Biotec team has grown to more than 1,100 employees. They produce and market over 1,400 products for the biomedical research community worldwide, through subsidiaries in North America and several European and Asia-Pacific countries. Meanwhile, the product range covers reagents, instruments, and services in the areas of cell separation, cell analysis, cell culture, sample preparation, and industrial GMP production of biologics and biopharmaceuticals. Researchers use Miltenyi Biotec products for isolating specific cell types to elucidate their role in the immune system, in hematological disorders and in cancer; clinical applications include the preparation of cells for cell therapy and tissue regeneration, as well as therapeutic apheresis.
