Pioneering Excellence with the New Steritest™ Symbio Pumps
Merck is a renowned expert in sterility testing. In 1974, when we invented the first Steritest™ closed membrane filtration testing device, we made sterility testing reliable.
Reliable sterility testing is now even easier with our new Steritest™ Symbio sterility testing pumps. They will speed up and streamline your workflow, maximizing safety, confidence and convenience.
