Research and Development
Committed to Innovation
From the beginning of Vitrex Medical, the “locomotive” in the development of the company has been the production facilities of our capillary tubes in Denmark. In accordance with our philosophy of having respect for experience and tradition, these facilities, as well as R&D, will remain in Denmark, supplemented by a worldwide network of selected production partners and sub-suppliers.
Our products are designed and developed by our own engineers and built by our own technicians. The equipment and technologies for manufacturing our products are highly specialized and state of the art.
We produce more than 2.000 different capillary tubes, varying in dimensions, scales, material and coatings, leading to a total of more than 5.000 different items. The flexibility in the production lines, that we have developed provides us with a privilege that we truly enjoy – the advantage of being capable of manufacturing both standard high-volume products and specialty products for our customers. In addition to the comprehensive, standardized range of products, we have developed a large variety of specialized products, i.e. high precision volumetric pipettes, pulling pipettes for a.o. gene-manipulation, and a variety of other highly specialized glass tubes.
Since Vitrex Medical was founded in 1967 we have improved our range and continuously adapted the products to the technologies and demands of the 21st century. A development which has taken capillary tubes from low-tech to high-tech. We have become the largest manufacturer of capillary tubes in the world today by developing equipment, establishing technologies, and optimizing production processes. This is a position we are very proud of having achieved, – and we intend to keep it.
Vitrex Medical is focused on continuous and organic growth within medical and laboratory products, directly and through joint development projects with external partners. The vast varieties of experience gathered from more than 50 years of developing products within our field makes us an attractive and versatile partner in development and business. Becoming a part of the CTI group in 2014 has increased our focus on being committed to innovation as we are collaborating with our sister companies to innovate, improve and develop as well as thinking and acting in new ways.
