Founded in 1984 as part of ASW Holding, Westburg Life Sciences started its journey by distributing restriction enzymes from New England Biolabs. This was just the beginning of our continuous evolution and adaptation to new technologies. We were part of the disruption of expression studies with this then-novel technology, leading to a significant leap in knowledge and understanding of biological processes. As technologies evolved, we continued to move scientific research forward with new products. Clotech laboratories offered expression systems, cloning technologies, and virus systems, further innovating research.

Our journey didn't stop there. We formed a partnership with Qiagen, transforming an unknown sample preparation kit supplier into the golden standard in the isolation market. And why stop here? Brands like Li-Cor Western Blot Imaging Systems, Takara Bio, EVOS microscopes, and many more followed. We are proud to have contributed to the growth of these visionary brands and to have established them in the Benelux market.

Today, we represent brands like Analytik Jena thermocyclers, LOGOS Bio cell counting systems, Capricorn Scientific cell culture products, Roboscreen test kits, and Innuscreen isolation kits. Our brand AmpliStar PCR plastics, TripleA pipette tips, and safeStore storage plastics add to the promise to offer high-quality products at a fair price.
