    Bioline Celebrates 20 Years of Services to Life Science

    How time flies! It's 2012 and this year Bioline: The PCR Company celebrates its 20 year anniversary.

    The world has changed rapidly and dramatically since Bioline was first established in 1992 by Marco Calzavara, president of Bioline, but we are still manufacturing and supplying a range of consistently high-quality products to life science researchers and institutions around the world.

    From our base in London, UK, we have rapidly expanded to become a leading primary manufacturer and distributor of PCR enzymes and reagents for molecular biology; providing complete solutions to researchers in universities, major research institutions, hospitals, biotech firms, diagnostics and pharmaceutical firms and laboratories globally.

    Bioline’s products have been cited thousands of times in leading journals by researchers all over the world and, as part of our 20 year anniversary celebrations, we've started to document some of these publications in our Bioline Scholar Monthly series of blog posts.

    When asked about the milestone of two decades of service provision to life science, Marco Calzavara, founder and president of Bioline, commented:

    "Our aim at Bioline for the past 20 years has been to develop high-quality and reliable products that really make the difference, delivering consistent results time after time. I am excited and proud to continue Bioline´s great work as a cutting edge molecular biology company, ensuring that we maintain our outstanding reputation as a high-quality and reliable firm."

    Richard L. Eberly, Chief Commercial Officer of Meridian Bioscience, Inc., added:

    "Congratulations to the Bioline team on its 20th anniversary of successful operations throughout the world. We are enthusiastic about the success of the merger and impressed by the scientific capabilities of Bioline, as well as its well-deserved reputation for innovation and quality. We remain committed to expanding the rapidly growing portfolio of highly specialized molecular biology products from Bioline that enable the development of genomic tests utilized by researchers, clinical diagnostic laboratories, diagnostic test manufacturers and biotechnology companies."

    As part of the 20 year celebrations, we are running a monthly Mystery Prize Giveaway for the rest of 2012. Lucky customers will find a golden ticket hiding in their delivery, so keep a close look out when you receive your delivery because you may find one included with your next order!

    We'd like all our customers over the years to join in the celebrations and you can do so by visiting the special Bioline 20 Year Anniversary microsite, where we have a timeline showing the major milestones over the last 20 years and an exclusive interview with our president, as well as other Bioline employees.
