Biocare Health Resources was formally established in 1983, starting as national exclusive distributor of Becton Dickinson (BD), representing product ranges from BD hypodermic, BD blood collection system, Bard-Parker Medical, Clay Adams instruments, and BBL culture media. The exclusive distributorship concluded in 1986, as Biocare expanded its product lines to serve a broader spectrum of the diagnostic industry.
At present, Biocare is considered a major and reliable supplier for immunology, blood banking, blood chemistry, point of care, and immuno-serological testing for medical laboratories. Meanwhile, the company continues to search for more reputable suppliers to compliment and improve its product mix for automated blood chemistry, hematology, blood gas/electrolyte, microbiology and allergy testing.
This continuous drive for growth is consistent with the company’s objective of providing customers a one-stop shop concept for its diagnostic requirements, anchored on the basic thrust of providing quality products at the most reasonable prices.
It is worth noting that in an industry dominated by multinational companies, Biocare is recognized as one of the leading Filipino companies enjoying leadership in some market niches. From its modest beginnings, Biocare has seen itself grow from $500,000 in annual gross sales to more than $5 million and still growing.
Biocare also holds the distinction as the first local diagnostic company that is ISO9001-certified by TUV Rheinland. The company consistently upgrades its working system to meet the requirements of a growing business.
