Belief in providing better diagnostic solutions inspired the founders of Serosep to form the company in 1997, beginning initially with the distribution of carefully selected diagnostics products for Clinical Microbiology, Histopathology and Environmental Laboratories.
Maintaining continuous critical analysis of the best diagnostic solutions available led Serosep to accumulate vast market knowledge. A combination of this knowledge with years of distribution experience to clinical laboratories enabled us to understand and appreciate the daily challenges faced by laboratory staff. This passion for excellence and dedication to customer care in distribution allowed Serosep to develop new and exciting opportunities.
Twenty five years on, Serosep continue to improve the quality of patient results and the daily lives of scientists by offering easy to use diagnostic solutions. Serosep is a thriving company with over 120 employees between the head office in Limerick and its UK office. Continuous investment in R&D facilities and a commitment to innovation and product development places Serosep at the forefront of the diagnostic solution market. Serosep now export its product range across five continents with impressive sales in over 35 countries worldwide.
In 2021, Serosep were delighted to be awarded Medtech company of the year. According to Dermot Scanlon, CEO and founder of Serosep Ltd, “Winning this award is testimony to the hard work, commitment, and dedication of all our employees. We believe this award will motivate us all to continue forging ahead, achieving bigger and better things. We are deeply humbled, honoured and profoundly grateful to accept this award.”
