Täby, Sweden: – Scandinavia’s leading supplier of validated biotechnology products, Nordic BioSite, is celebrating its 20th year in business with a range of special offers.

Nordic BioSite was founded in Stockholm in 1997 by a team that included Yvonne Zar, who currently leads the company as its CEO.

Two decades of achievement

Ms. Zar is profiled in a recent issue of Corporate Vision magazine, where she reflects on what Nordic BioSite has achieved over the past two decades.

“I, alongside my colleagues, have been on a journey with this firm. It has taken time and energy and we are looking forward to continued success,” Yvonne Zar tells the magazine.

Optimized antibodies

A large part of that success will lie in the further development of its flagship range of its Optibodies™ optimized antibodies, specifically enhanced to provide best staining in immunohistochemistry (IHC) applications.

Optibodies stand at the apex of a Nordic BioSite range that now numbers more than two million products. Their success is built on core strengths in combining product development with scientific research through its companion BioSiteHisto laboratory; along with a distinctive focus on ensuring its entire people have solid scientific expertise.

Online offers

A further theme of Nordic BioSite’s success has been continuous development of its online portal for sales. The Nordic BioSite website is now hosting a range of ingenious special offers to mark the company’s 20th.

Customers can subscribe to a special calendar that celebrates each year of the company’s existence with historic scientific milestones and a different special offer.

The year 1997 was used as a vehicle for a 25% reduction on all ELISA testing kits while 1998 hosts a 20% discount across the range of all Nordic BioSite microbiomics products associated with that year’s Nobel Prize-winning discovery of signaling molecules in the cardiovascular system.

“We see our 20th as a unique opportunity to reflect on our achievements but more importantly to thanking our valuable customers, including suppliers and distributors, for being part of that journey and enabling our success,” said Yvonne Zar.
