We want to be the best partner to our customers and a forerunner in modern clinical laboratory services. This is enabled by our strong expertise in the field, upholding quality and responsibility in our work, as well as constantly innovating and developing new ways to answer to our customers’ needs.
The origin of our company dates back over 60 years ago when in 1955 United Clinical Laboratories was founded. It was at that time the first private clinical laboratory in Northern Europe. Later in 1964 Medix was founded by a group of researchers. Throughout the years both companies specialized in different areas of clinical laboratory services. United Laboratories developed close ties with the private healthcare community, whereas Medix focused more on scientific research and the public healthcare market - both leading the way in their respective fields. In 2009 these two companies came together in a merger creating United Medix Laboratories. Today United Medix Laboratories combines the traditions and signature characteristics of both companies by incorporating scientific curiosity and the care perspective to our business.
From the July of 2018 we have been a member of SYNLAB, the biggest influencer in the field of laboratory services in Europe.
