Siemens Healthineers (Erlangen, Germany) has launched a Center of Excellence for Immunoassay Instrument Research and Development (R&D) in Swords, Ireland. The new center will focus on unlocking breakthrough innovations in laboratory instruments used to detect infectious diseases, cancer and blood disorders. Siemens has been active in Swords since 1966, supplying medical diagnostic equipment to hospitals and laboratories. The site currently manufactures hematology and immunoassay analyzers and supports the continuous innovation of current and new products and the development of laboratory automation software, exported to more than 50 countries across all continents. Siemens will be making a multi-million-euro investment in the site, enabling clinicians to optimize patient care by bringing new levels of precision, efficiency and reliability to the diagnostic laboratories that serve them.

The investment by Siemens will span multiple years and more than double the existing engineering team, transforming the site into an innovation hub, growing knowledge, providing new training opportunities and developing a pool of expertise in immunoassay technology. The center will push the boundaries of science and engineering. Improvements to existing diagnostic techniques will enhance disease detection capabilities with the goal of delivering faster, higher precision results with improved patient insights. This will help to meet the extremely high throughput and complex needs of hospitals and laboratories in Ireland as well as globally. The project is supported by the Irish government through IDA Ireland.

“The investment at Swords will build on our existing expertise in healthcare manufacturing, adding a critical research and development focus," states Dr Dennis Gilbert, Head of R&D for Siemens Healthineers Diagnostics. "Partnering with IDA has enabled us to move forward in ways that would not have otherwise been feasible and will allow us to pioneer breakthroughs in healthcare, helping hospitals and laboratories across the globe to diagnose disease more effectively and efficiently.
