Company details

Alifax was founded in 1988 in Padova by Paolo Galiano as a result of his valuable experience in the laboratory diagnostic market with special reference to hematology, microbiology, serology and autoimmunity fields.

In 1998 after the acquisition of Sire Analytical Systems,Alifax asserts its position in the Italian market as producer of clinical diagnostic instrumentation
for the analysis of Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate and rapid bacterial culture. This is the inception of a rapid and successful development worldwide.

Nowadays Alifax is present with 3 subsidiaries in Russia, Spain and China and a distribution network that includes more than 90 countries around the world.
