Production and Quality


The tradition pertaining to manufacturing of diagnostic products reaches as far as to the year 1967 when the first clinical biochemistry kits were manufactured. The scope of the production activities was gradually extended by other product groups - diagnostic strips, microbiology kits and immunodiagnostic kits.

A new diagnostic product manufacturing plant was put in operation in 1986 (in 2003 the plant was subject to extensive refurbishment and modernization). The principal objective of modernization of the production facilities was ensuring of compliance with the demanding conditions stipulated in the EU legislation in connection with manufacturing of diagnostic products.

The production process is performed using modern blenders, homogenizers, lyophilizers, adjusting devices and packaging machines. The quality of production is ensured on the basis of implementation of the respective quality assurance system (ISO 9001:2008 certified by Lloyd Registered Quality Assurance) and ISO 13485.

The product portfolio of  Erba Lachema comprises more than 400 products to be used in clinical biochemistry, haematology and microbiology laboratories as well as in surgeries and for self-testing purposes.
