Somagen Diagnostics Company Profile

21:09 EST 19th November 2017 | BioPortfolio

Somagen was founded as Immucor Canada Inc. in 1988 by Thomas E Brown and Roland Person. In its early days the business focused on supplying the Canadian Blood Bank market. By 1995 the company had begun expanding into other niche laboratory markets and then acquired NCS Diagnostics in a significant step toward expansion. Kevin Blackburn, who would become the company's third partner, joined the business in 1996. Expansion into new markets within the clinical lab continued over the next several years. Immucor ultimately became Somagen Diagnostics and moved completely away from the original Blood Bank business. By 2000, when new partner and current CFO Craig Gardiner came to Somagen, the company was a leading player in several important markets including Cellular Pathology, POC Diagnostics, Electrophoresis and Immunology.



The Somagen "formula" has meant that customers can rely on Somagen to offer the support they need at a time when value and service are no longer always synonymous. It has also meant that suppliers looking for a dedicated, highly technical sales-force have been able to rely on Somagen to execute their programs in a market as challenging as Canada's has been in recent years. Somagen's sales-force supports the entire country with representatives covering all 10 provinces. This outstanding group is supported by a team of dedicated Technical Product Specialists, Applications Specialists and Field Service Engineers with many years of relevant technical and hands-on experience.
