Institut Virion-Serion GmbH
1978 saw the founding of Institut Virion\Serion GmbH in the city of Würzburg in southern Germany. From the outset the company has specialized in the manufacture of in vitro diagnostic products for the infectious disease serology and has, due to continual growth, twice expanded into new premises over the past 30 years. This family run business with its roots in Würzburg has remained in the region and currently provides employment and career opportunities for around 125 employees. Our product range offers a selection of analysis methodologies to aid the diagnosis of viral, bacterial, parasitic and fungal diseases. The complement fixation test (CFT) range alone offers in excess of 50 antigens plus associated reagents and controls for the detection of pathogen specific antibodies. SERION ELISA classic products allow for the differentiation of antibody classes for disease state and immune status determinations. In contrast, SERION ELISA antigen products allow for direct pathogen detection. Immunomat™ and Gemini are capable of automatically processing SERION ELISA classic and SERION ELISA antigen immunoassays.
All products are manufactured exclusively in Würzburg, Germany, by Institut Virion\Serion GmbH in compliance with national and international quality assurance standards related to in vitro medical devices such as the European Directive IVDD 98/79/EC. The company operates under a quality management system based on the latest updated version of ISO 13485:2012. Customers in Germany are served by our sales team of product specialists while worldwide sales, which at present encompass over 80 countries, are coordinated through our subsidiary Serion Immunodiagnostica GmbH and an extensive network of local distributors. In order to provide an efficient service for our products in the Asiatic and Brazilian market we established branch offices in Beijing and Curitiba in 2003 and 2010.
