As an academic turned founder & CEO of Matriks Biotechnology, I established the company in 2002, Ankara, Turkey. Over the last 32 years, my career has covered, 23 years of research and teaching at Medical School in Ankara University and the 20 years of research & development and business at Matriks Biotechnology.
Matriks Biotek® began its early life as a highly innovative, scientific driven start-up company and in 20 years, it became a sustainable business with over 100 SHIKARI® and CoronaHunter® ELISA kits that have been distributed more than 40 countries directly or with our highly skilled distribution and OEM partners. The company gave a start to business with a credit card and all the investments have been done by owner’s equity and we invest 50% of our revenue to R&D. I think the company is a typical encouraging example for bio-entrepreneurs. I believe, brilliant jobs can be done with dedicated brilliant team players and that lies under our successes.
Science, innovation, reliability, perfection and customer satisfaction are the core values of our business. Where many of our products are unique in the market and over 160 publications have been done by using our kits. We have a very quick response technical support and complaint rate is below only 0.5%.
Being the globally the first and leading company to produce and commercialize widest range of SHIKARI® kits for monitoring 36 biological drugs and after the covid-19 pandemic started with our know-how for antibody quantification, we could not remain indifferent to this situation. For better understanding the Covid-19, we have developed 16 “real quantitative” widest range and informative CoronaHunter® ELISA kits. More to come in the post-covid era.
After leaving 20 years behind in the 3rd decade, there is a new chapter in front of us. We will strive to find solutions to many of the challenging health related situations that need to be overcome.
With deep gratitude to our customers, distributor partners who have used our products with confidence and of course all the Matriks Biotek® Team who make this happen all these years.
Stay healthy, stay safe!
