R&D is central to Stago group business and performance. This strength represents over 21% of the workforce. It makes medical test systems, specialised in Haemostasis, which demands skills in the design and development of reagents, automated instruments and consumables.
R&D employs men and women who have specific know-how in varied fields:
- Reagents: Enzymology, Immunology, Biochemistry, Microbiology, Chemistry, etc.
- Instrumentation: Automatic Devices, Electronics, Software, Mechanics, Fluids, Optics, Systems, etc.
The implementation of these skills in multi-disciplinary projects applies to continuous improvement of the products sold as well as the development of new products.
