Our path started with a simple vision — to help people.

We believe that genuine connections are what make us human. Those connections motivate our teams to create better solutions that help people from discovery to diagnosis. We work harder every day to build relationships.

Working to create healthcare solutions that help save lives will always unite us. We are a company of advocates. Of courageous thinkers. Of compassionate doers who strive to understand, collaborate and simplify an increasingly challenging industry. Each discovery, each diagnosis each answer, every patient, every day.

For all of us, our path started with a simple vision—to help people. No matter how the realities of today push and pull us, we won’t lose sight of that calling.

Our path started with a simple vision

 

In 1977, Bill Motto founded Meridian Bioscience on a $500 investment in his Cincinnati home’s basement. Meridian’s first product was distributing a rapid fungal test developed by the University of Kentucky. While calling on his hospital and research customers, Bill noticed there was no easy, clean way to transport patient samples. He developed the innovative Para-Pak stool transport system to meet this need. As the product line grew, so did Meridian’s research and development, leading to a breakthrough in 1982 with a 10-minute rapid test for strep throat. Before the Meridian test, doctors would have to wait for two to three days for a culture result. Innovation continued as the company brought several cutting edge diagnostic technologies to market, including a DNA testing platform and first-of-their-kind tests for C. difficile, E. coli, H. pylori amongst others.

Meridian went public in 1986 and trades on NASDAQ (VIVO).

Mr. Motto passed away in 2014 at 73 years old. Today the company is headed up by CEO Jack Kenny. Meridian Bioscience is organized into two divisions (Life Sciences and Diagnostics) and has annual revenues of over US$200M. Meridian is headquartered in Cincinnati, OH, and has offices in eight countries and employs more than 600 people.
