Segments in Healthcare & Life Sciences

The Healthcare and Life Sciences world is in upheaval: the quality of life, health and sustainability come ever more into focus for individuals on a global level.   Manufacturers are developing themselves from conventional providers of device solutions into providers of digital and holistic health solutions. Constant new results of research, rapid technological advancements including the digitalization and enormously high level of innovation in the sector open up new opportunities. Products in this heavily regulated market become ever more complex, with an increasing portion of cutting-edge technology, while demands for development speed, cost optimization and reliability increase. Together with your know-how in academic and clinical applications, our expertise in technical, logistic and regulatory implementation sustainably improves your efficiency over the complete product life cycle and secures your market success.



In order for market and customer-focused action to take place, we have also become more diversified and are focused on the following sector segments:

Medical Technology

Medical devices for diagnostics, treatment and rehabilitation are the basics of healthcare and have been part of the Zollner Elektronik AG portfolio for a long time. In view of this diversity, our well-established know-how as Mechatronics Service Providers provides added benefit. We develop and manufacture medical devices for the clinical environment and outside of the clinic. Thus we are involved in the manufacture of respiratory devices, which supported the severely ill patients during the Covid-19 pandemic.

    Laboratory Equipment

    Cutting-edge research develops ever new, improved methods for analytics and diagnostics. In order to execute the increasing number of procedures and tests quickly, reliably and cost-efficiently, automation of the preparation process, handling and storage of the samples is necessary. The complexity of the devices needed for this is constantly increasing - a challenge we with our know-how as Mechatronics Experts and our decade-long experience have often encountered. We produce equipment for laboratories and biotechnology for the analysis of organic substances, in vitro diagnostics and automation, which finds use in academic and clinical institutions. Among these are test systems that serve to verify Coronavirus - mostly in the form of laboratory tests but also self tests.

    Digital Health

    Digitalization of healthcare is well underway. Data and technologies are used effectively to improve patient case and with that the health of every individual. This bolsters prevention, links patients, treatment providers (caretakers) and health service providers and personalizes health and treatment management. Thus digitalization affects all existing segments. At the same time it generates new business models and product innovation for medical purposes. Research and supply takes it to a higher level. In this fast growing and changing market environment, not only does the comprehensive experience of Zollner Elektronik AG in medical technology provide benefit but also its participation in innovation in numerous other sectors.
