With this idea Marc Bonten and Arie-Jan de Graaf started MBAG Diagnostics. Arie-Jan has been working in the field of clinical chemistry for many years. First as a lab technician and after that as a research and product specialist. It was in this last function that he specialized himself in the technology of liquid chromatography in combination with mass spectrometry (mass spec). In this function he and Marc became acquainted as well. Marc has a great deal of experience in establishing and upholding supplier contacts as well as in purchase and marketing. Together they have the ambition to make the mass spec technology accessible to all laboratories. The equipment necessary is becoming more affordable, the test kits however are not. By committing to efficient business management and combining forces with other companies MBAG Diagnostics will offer a widespread program with complete solutions for clinical chemistry laboratories at a very competing, and therefore, interesting price range.
