The Bio-Medical Division is focused on becoming a leading provider of diagnostic laboratory equipment as well as innovative products to treat biological pathogenic waste in the medical, agricultural and pharmaceutical industries. In the field of laboratory diagnostic equipment, the Group has developed its own equipment and reagents, which have enabled it to grow in various markets and establish an expanding customer base.
While continuing to innovate and increase its presence in traditional markets, the Group is also investing, directly and through joint ventures, in developing the most advanced molecular biotechnology.
The diagnostics unit’s current highly reliable, fast and easy to operate equipment for small diagnostic laboratories are sold primarily to labs in emerging markets, which have significant potential for growth. The unit sells instruments as well as associated reagents and consumables.
The division’s other innovative solutions treat pathogenic and medical waste in laboratories and hospitals, and in pharmaceutical manufacturing plants and for agricultural applications (in particular, for the safe treatment on site of poultry remains during the rendering process). These solutions are based on unique patented Integrated Sterilizer and Shredder technology that has been used and recommended by the WHO (World Health Organization).
The division is also a distributor of leading brands of other diagnostic equipment and medical supplies, particularly within Eastern Europe. This includes providing analytical and diagnostic tests of third parties, which helps to develop the market channels for BATM’s own diagnostic solutions and relationship with tier 1 companies.
