History of Sentinel Diagnostics

HISTORY

Sentinel Diagnostics was founded in Milan in 1983.

Sentinel Diagnostics uses the experience gained in the development and production of diagnostic kits for Clinical Chemistry, Immunology and Molecular Biology.

Today the Sentinel Diagnostics® brand is well known and appreciated on a worldwide scale, thanks to the increasingly fruitful partnerships with prestigious companies (AbbottBeckman-CoulterOrtho-Clinical DiagnosticsRocheSiemens, Sysmex, etc.) in the diagnostics sector that have chosen Sentinel Diagnostics as the ideal partner for the realization of diagnostic kits dedicated for use on their automated analyzers.
