COPENHAGEN BIOTECH SUPPLY - premium products for microbiology and biotechnology
To provide high quality products at competitive prices with personal service.
To sell products we trust - in a way that stands out from the rest.
In 2007 Carsten worked as a visiting scientist in Montana, USA. Here he got familiar with an outstanding kit to extract DNA from soil. The kit was manufactured by MoBio (now Qiagen) and only available in Denmark through other European distributors. And the european price was high, like comparable kits from other brands. Carsten contacted MoBio aiming to arrange direct purchase to his lab in Denmark, but was instead offered to be exclusive distributor of all MoBio products in Denmark and Iceland. Thus, Copenhagen Biotech Supply was founded. In 2015, Copenhagen Biotech Supply was awarded with the yearly prize for being the best selling distributor. We believe the reason for our high sales was the combination of high quality, low pricing, and personal service. A principle we have kept ever since.
During the years, other brands have been added, and a few (including MOBIO) have been terminated.
Currently, we represent BIORON (in Denmark since 2010), American Radiolabeled Chemicals (in Denmark since 2010), CHROMagar (in Denmark since 2011), PCR Biosystems (in Denmark since 2013 and Iceland since 2021), Alpha Biosciences (in Denmark since 2013), Omni International (in Denmark and Iceland since 2017), and Clearsynth (new in 2023).
We have an excellent collaboration with our suppliers. They are all carefully selected to meet the needs of our customers in the best possible way. They all supply high quality products and provide excellent technical service.
Working with you on new products:
In collaboration with our customers, we often test the quality of new brands before introducing them in our shop. If you know of other products that could be of interest to your laboratory, please let us know and we can together work out a strategy.
We are happy to visit customers and show our products. However, our main interest is to show our products at exhibitions at scientific meetings and trade shows in Denmark. Therefore, if you arrange a meeting and would like us to sponsor, please let us know.
