After conception and validation of the test system, all described by standard operating procedures (SOPs) in compliance with quality standards, trial operation began. Results and a further agreement were coordinated with the governmental health agency in Lower Austria.

Since then, scientists and researchers at the Erber Group research facilities in Tulln have provided time, resources and know-how for PCR testing to conduct nearly 1500 tests for COVID-19 to date. This activity took place all while Erber Group employees kept research and development activities running by introducing added health and safety measures in the workplace.

In a press statement (in German), the clinic’s management thanked the “competent and neighbourly help” of Erber Group employees for their support.

“We are passionate about science. It’s a core part of our organisation. Each day we engage our mental abilities and resources to solve customer problems and improve the sustainability and safety of the farm-to-fork food chain. So it’s only natural that we felt compelled to get involved,” explained Dr Eva Maria Binder, Executive Board Member of Erber Group and Managing Director of EFB.

“We are grateful for the chance to work with the University Clinic staff and management to support the local community,” commented Franz Waxenecker, Managing Director of Biomin.

“It is important to acknowledge the efforts and dedication of the Biomin and Erber team. In the face of a pandemic they adapted to new ways of working and living, and also were able to contribute to the community,” added Mr Waxenecker.
