Zeus Scientific Inc
ZEUS Scientific is a privately held corporation that was founded in 1976. The company began producing IFA (immunofluorescence assay) test systems followed ELISA and now multiplex (AtheNA Multi-Lyte) immunoassays.
New products are developed to expand the menu which allows laboratories to run an increasing number of assays with common protocols and common reagents, as well as developing new tests to more accurately diagnose patients. In 1987 ZEUS Scientific was the first company to develop, receive appropriate regulatory clearance and bring to market a serological assay to test for Lyme disease – a condition with high prevalence in the local community where ZEUS Scientific is located.
