Description of the company

Somagen Diagnostics Inc.

Somagen was founded as Immucor Canada Incorporated in 1988 by Thomas E Brown and Roland Person. In its early days the business focused on supplying the Canadian Blood Bank market. By 1995 the company had begun expanding into other niche laboratory markets and then acquired NCS Diagnostics in a significant step toward expansion. Kevin Blackburn, who would become the company s third partner, joined the business in 1996. Expansion into new markets within the clinical lab continued over the next several years. Immucor ultimately became Somagen Diagnostics and moved completely away from the original Blood Bank business. By 2000, when new partner and current CFO Craig Gardiner came to Somagen, the company was a leading player in several important markets including Cellular Pathology, POC Diagnostics, Electrophoresis and Immunology. The Somagen "formula" has meant that customers can rely on Somagen to offer the support they need at a time when value and service are no longer always synonymous. It has also meant that suppliers looking for a dedicated, highly technical sales-force have been able to rely on Somagen to execute their programs in a market as challenging as Canada s has been in recent years. Somagen s sales-force supports the entire country with representatives covering all 10 provinces. This outstanding group is supported by a team of dedicated Technical Product Specialists, Applications Specialists and Field Service Engineers with many years of relevant technical and hands-on experience. "Our team has been built to reflect the needs of our customers. Because so many of our products are highly technical in nature we cannot simply offer them out of a catalogue. We must be able to understand our customers needs, match those needs with the right product and be there for the customer when they need us, before and after the sale. Our Sales, Product Specialist and Service teams come from the best companies in the industry and all have practical laboratory experience." Kevin Blackburn President "The common theme among all of the suppliers we represent and the products they provide is the leading edge nature of the technology and prominence within their chosen market. All products from these major suppliers are market leaders whose technology is relevant in an evolving and complex environment." Tammie Kovacs Vice President Somagen adopted the phrase "INSPIRED" in 2003. INSPIRED Service, INSPIRED Thinking, INSPIRED people all describe the Somagen that has become a leader in Canadian Clinical Diagnostics. Through having the lowest staff turnover rates in the industry, Somagen has built a team that embodies the INSPIRED theme offering supplier partners and customers the best support possible.
