In the early years after its founding, the company focussed on refining the laboratory method FISH to a robust technology fit for industrial applications. In 2000, the VIT® gene probe technology was introduced. VIT® unites all advantages of the FISH technology with additional robustness and increased specificity. Today, VIT® is the industrial standard of the FISH technology. Since the original development of the FISH method for the detection of bacteria at the Chair of Microbiology of the Technical University of Munich, the FISH method has been and is still being used in scientific research in universities all over the world.
