and Professor Mikael Kubista as one of four sister companies in the
Xanadu group. The others are LightUp
Technologies AB, TATAA Biocenter
AB, and MultiD Analyses AB.
In 1999, when United Nations withdraw their sanctions against Libya,
Mikael Kubista was appointed international scientific advisor to Unesco
to help establishing biotechnology research and modern diagnostics in
Libya. MENA Diagnostics became one of the main suppliers of diagnostic
products and research instruments to Libya, many of which where installed
personally by Mikael. In 2003 MENA Diagnostics main office was moved
to Tripoli, and in 2004/2005, when drug import to Libya was deregulated,
MENA Pharma division was established. Today MENA Diagnostics has offices
in Tripoli, Bengazi, Musrata and Gothenburg (Sweden). We have three
warehouses and general store facilities including freezers. We have
internationally highly experienced management, a strong and dedicated
sales and service team of five people with medical background, a store
manager and a company accountant.
