Biowest, 35 years of serving life sciences

Quality, efficiency and transparency’s commitments have made Biowest a European leader for over 35 years. Combined with a fully integrated supply chain and confident distributor network around the world, Biowest has earned the trust in the life sciences field.

Our history ...

Founded in 1987, Biowest is the European leader in the collection of animal sera, providing the widest range of sera and cell culture media available on the market.


In 2004, Biowest was acquired by the BIONORDIC group, a collector of animal by-products in Latin America, to become the first vertically integrated serum company from raw materials to finished products.

Our products are used in the production of biopharmaceuticals and vaccines, as well as in the academic, government, and industrial research sectors. They cover areas such as cell biology, genomics, proteomics, virology, immunology, innovative drug research, and toxicology.


In 2006, Biowest obtained ISO 9001 certification, an internationally recognized quality management standard.

Today, Biowest still holds this certification, which needs to be renewed every 3 years.


In 2014, Biowest became certified according to the ISO 13485 standard, which specifies the requirements for quality management systems in the medical device industry.

Today, Biowest still holds this certification, which needs to be renewed every 3 years.
