“We are very proud to present Biomedica as our first distributor in Europe, a significant milestone for the company and a perfect partner to roll-out the QuickMIC® system in Europe”, says Sara Thorslund, CEO of Gradientech.

“Biomedica is an excellent partner for several reasons.

The QuickMIC system’s ultra-rapid and precise results enable patients with sepsis to quickly receive specific personalized guidance of the right antibiotics in the right dose. The modular design makes it flexible and allows hospitals to start on a small scale and then scale up as needed.


“At Biomedica, we aim to meet all our customers’ needs at the highest level. Innovation is one of our core values and adding the product line from Gradientech is a perfect addition to our Sepsis portfolio in that respect. It not only strengthens our position in a strategically important segment where we have major expertise, it also enables to improve clinical decisions in a time sensitive environment”, commented Dr. Petra Wiedemann, Managing Director at Biomedica.
