More than 30 years in diagnostic innovation solutions

Our inception came about in Padua, in 1988, as a result of our innovation-focused vision, and it is thanks to this foundational principle that we now embody innovation itself.

Intuition, entrepreneurship and innovation: the values that led Dr Paolo Galiano to utilise his decades-long experience in laboratory diagnostics to found Alifax, a revolutionary company, that is now one of the leading international players in the haematology, microbiology, molecular biology, serology and autoimmunity fields.

Our history and successes

Alifax has always focused on new products and innovation, thanks to continuous stimuli which are essential for this sector

TEST1 is one of our first great successes: back in the 90s, it completely revolutionised the way in which the erythrocyte sedimentation rate was analysed, by retrieving reliable results in just 20 seconds, thanks to quantitative capillary photometry

This patented technology can now be found in over 10,000 installations worldwide and has resulted in a considerable expansion – even on the foreign markets – by means of the industry’s largest multinational companies

OVER 30 YEARS OF SUCCESS

 

We owe all that we have become today to many factors: perseverance, commitment, research, the ability to question ourselves and a constant relationship-focused attention

As Dr Paolo Galiano says: “Success is achieved whenever the end customer recognises that a winning product has been invented”

Fortunate, indeed, to have crossed paths with great souls,

crafting a tapestry of wisdom and insight.

Intellectual honesty defines the scientists I’ve known,

individuals not just capable of teaching, but also adept at listening.

My belief is to exist, and in the industrial world,

it means creating a winning project
