The beginning of Great History is written by a little Idea.

From a former commercial enterprise of biological and fine chemicals, the ALNA-Bioscience has grown into a leading research company. Stages of a companie’s history that impress indeed even though they seem to have just began.

  • 2004 the company officially registers as Alna-International e.K. in the book of commerce. At this point the company consists of 3 employees.

The process of qualification due to ISO is in rapid process and the first catalogue representing the total volume of business is just being published. Furthermore, we are in the very midst of developing a new product line. The first step to another business section is being taken.
  • 2010 Alna-Bioscience is happy for a few new heads in our team. After 7 years of research work, new product developments are added to our portfolio.
