KUWAIT: Healthcare pioneer Roche opened its new diagnostic office at the Symphony complex yesterday. The opening ceremony was attended by Dr Ziad Al-Alyan, CEO of Central Circle Company, the official distributor of Roche in Kuwait, Harald Wolf, General Manager Middle East Management Centre, and the top management of Roche.

Roche is one of the most trusted suppliers for the Ministry of Health and the private health sector in Kuwait. Roche is one of the largest diagnostic companies in the world, which was founded in 1896 in Basel, Switzerland. Today, Roche creates innovative medicines and diagnostic tests that help millions of patients globally.

Roche entered the diagnostic market in 1968 after creating a department for diagnostic products. Apart from developing new diagnostic tests and automatic analyzers, objectives include setting up service laboratories to perform clinical analyses for hospitals and office-based physicians.

The new office launching of Roche diagnostics comes after gaining a new distributer in Kuwait – Central Circle Company. “We are glad to celebrate the launch of our new office, and we look forward to serve the local market better with our new distributer,” said Ahmed Abdulqader, Head of Diagnostics Kuwait.

Through its commitment to research and innovation, Roche continues to make steady advances in drug therapy that will replace more expansive treatments and shorten hospital stays. Roche ranks among the world’s leading healthcare companies with its expertise in two core businesses – diagnostics and pharmaceuticals. Combined with its strength in biotechnology, the company paves the way to the future of healthcare with innovations in areas such as personalized healthcare.
