Our mission: "providing reliable solutions for the bioprocess market that will enable an improved quality of life"

Applikon Biotechnology is a world leader in developing and supplying advanced bioreactor systems from laboratory scale to production scale. We are the only company that can take a customer from the initial screening stage up to full-scale production using the same platform. This minimizes scale-up risks and guarantees the shortest time to market for our customers' new product development.

We live by our motto "A Step Ahead" to differentiate ourselves from other suppliers. Our focus on developing bioreactor systems only, allows us to produce state-of-the-art equipment. This has resulted in a steady growth to the top position of the worldwide bioreactor market.

As a privately owned company our focus is not on short-term shareholders value but on building a healthy company by supplying the best product offering for our customers now and in the long-term future. This is the basis of many long-term relations with our clients all over the world.

Since we started in 1974 we have shown a healthy growth and profit. R&D is done in house in our headquarters in Delft, The Netherlands. Design and engineering is done in house but real manufacturing is outsourced. Final assembling is done in-house. We have our own sales and service organizations in the USA (Foster City, California and Dover, New Jersey), the UK (Tewkesbury) and China (Guangzhou). We have well trained local distributors for sales and service in over 35 countries.
