In 2007 Sanbio moved into a brand new state of art facility with room for growth. We are located in the Eindhoven region which is the brightest region in the world as appointed by the Intelligent Community Forum (ICF). It is centrally located and close to high technology science parks in Eindhoven, Utrecht and Nijmegen. This enables technology transfer in the process of knowledge, skill transferring and methods of manufacturing among institutions to ensure that scientific and technological developments are accessible to a wider range of users. 

Company Profile


The laboratory products Sanbio supplies for life science and diagnostics are carefully selected to meet the standards set for reliability, applicability, quality and innovation. Sharing the experience and knowledge, gathered by Sanbio in the past 35 years, has resulted in mutually respected partnerships between Sanbio, their suppliers and end-users. For Sanbio, quality-oriented thinking, good communication, reliability, technical skills and market intelligence are well integrated core concepts within the organization.


Sanbio acts as link between user and supplier of laboratory products for life science and diagnostics. By keeping communication lines short and sharing technical knowledge, it’s easier for the customer (technicians, specialists and procurement officers) to gain access to the products offered by Sanbio. This contributes to high levels of fundamental and applied research performed within the Benelux countries, which ultimately benefits to progression of health care in general.


Our customers in Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg (Benelux) are based in laboratories of academic hospitals, universities, general hospitals, governmental laboratories, contract research organizations, pharmaceutical – and biotech industry.

Business Development

We regularly visit international congresses and business meetings to learn more about the trends in the life science market through conversations with experts, business networking, and educational sessions. We always come back with renewed energy and inspiration, because of the wealth of new information we gained. This helps us to stay on top of the developments within a fast moving market.


The online word of mouth by social media, our interactive website, search engine optimization and sending out digital newsletters gives us different ways to share and promote new developments, new products and innovations, from either our suppliers or our own products, with our customers.
