AbBaltis, based on the Kent Science Park, are a wonderful example of a small business that continues to grow. Under the leadership of Giedre Brandao, the eight-year-old business continues to develop rapidly as its international reach expands.

Giedre explained exactly what AbBaltis does: “AbBaltis supply disease state plasma to the manufactures of In Vitro Diagnostic tests. To explain it in more detail, we help companies develop new and improve existing blood diagnostic tests. We provide biological materials and scientific support to the researchers worldwide.”

Giedre and her team of eight have developed a global customer base, with them shipping product across the EU, as well as expanding into the US, China, South Korea and Japan.

AbBaltis is also committed to helping to develop the next generation of scientists. Not only does the business host pupils from various secondary schools and local universities for work experience; they also currently have an apprentice and offer a graduate scheme for Biomedical Science graduates.

“I believe we deserve to win a Swale Business Award in 2018,” Giedre concluded. “AbBaltis is a business that helps scientists to improve the health of patients worldwide. We are an extremely fast growing exporter of biomedical materials critical for development of life-saving and life-improving diagnostic tests. Since the start of the business in 2010, AbBaltis has been able to grow and expand without external finance and remains debt free and profitable. Our growth and popularity is due to investing in research and providing well characterised materials to our customers, fast turnaround, friendly customer service and flexible solutions.”
