Innovation Across Our Business


Research Solutions | Process Solutions | Applied Solutions
Innovation is a key contributor to our ability to accelerate access to health for people everywhere. Our business is research-driven and innovation-focused. In 2016, we invested €260 million in R&D that supported our innovation in launching 2,100 products – products designed to meet our customers' most unmet needs – from antibodies to water purification systems.

The ability to innovate is the core of our culture across all three of our businesses.
