Oxoid is one of the world’s leading manufacturers and distributors of other types of microbiological culture media and antibiotic products. Oxoid products are used in industrial and clinical laboratories for the purpose of isolating and identifying bacteria and types of pathogenic organisms. As a major supplier of prepared environments for pharmaceutical, food, medical markets… has factories in Perth – Scotland, Wesel – Germany, Ottawa – Canada and thanks to that large market Oxoid has established a reputation and expanded to Adelaide – Australia in September 2003.

With 01 strict quality control and quality assurance system, Oxoid brings customers products that meet technical requirements and high quality. Oxoid products meet ISO 9001 standard.
