foster quality │ create certainty
The central element of our work is the production of quality control samples and reference materials of the highest quality.

The aim of our work is to contribute to the continuous quality improvement and standardization of laboratory diagnostics. Our focus is on the production of control samples for viral immunology and viral genome detection. The production of these control samples involves samples for interlaboratory comparisons. In order to specifically promote quality here, we produce selected sensitivity and specificity panels as well as panels for geno/subtyping and resistance determination of infectious agents for our customers, among other things.
A good working atmosphere, individual and ergonomic workplace design, performance-related pay and regular internal and external training courses serve to maintain and further develop the expertise and performance of our employees. This is intended to promote quality awareness, motivation and commitment among the workforce. Transparency in dealing with mistakes is of particular importance. Recognizing mistakes and understanding problems is seen in GBD as opportunities for improvement. Every employee is called upon to actively participate in the detection of defects and to contribute to their elimination - in order to produce the best quality and to avoid or reduce environmental impacts.
The implemented quality management system is binding for all employees.
Satisfaction of our customers with our products and services is the driving force of our actions. We want to identify the wishes and future tasks of our customers at an early stage in order to promptly and reliably meet them. Since high performance results and flexibility are only possible with competent and satisfied employees, our employees are also the focus of our actions. Top priority is given to the qualification, information and motivation of all employees. We guarantee this through transparent communication, an individual and ergonomic design of the workplace, performance-related remuneration and regular internal and external training.
Our ideas, and the expertise to implement them, create new products and secure our future. We see changes in the market as an opportunity for increased growth. We use our skills to develop and provide innovative products, services and solutions to meet the changing needs of our customers. Sustainable economic activity secures the basis for long-term success and for the implementation of quality objectives. Everyone in the company is involved in this.
We see recognizing errors and understanding problems as an opportunity for improvement. Every employee is called upon to actively participate in the recognition of errors and to contribute to their elimination - in order to produce the best quality and to avoid environmental impacts.
Error prevention has priority over error detection.
We continuously adapt and improve our quality management system to new conditions. To this end, we have selected a team of experts from various areas of the company who regularly exchange views on quality objectives. Our quality objectives are closely linked to our corporate and process objectives - in this way we want to ensure that all employees take responsibility for jointly achieving our goals and identify with our core values.
