About the company
Every day, half a million blood samples are tested around the world using Radiometer equipment. The company specializes in blood gas analysis, transcutaneous monitoring, and immunoassay testing for cardiac, coagulation, infection and pregnancy markers. Fast, accurate diagnostics help healthcare professionals make immediate, well-informed decisions to improve care and optimize patient flow in acute care settings.
Founded in 1935 and headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark, Radiometer pioneered blood gas testing, introducing the world’s first commercially available blood gas analyzer in 1954. The company joined Danaher’s Diagnostics segment in 2004 and continues to drive innovation with a focus on fast, easy, reliable diagnostics in acute care settings. Recent successes include AQT, a point-of-care device that allows critical cardiac tests to be performed closer to the bedside in emergency departments and intensive care units.
