Vision and Values

Diagnostics play a central role in health and health care. This is particularly true in parts of the world where the burden of infectious diseases is highest and access to advanced laboratory capacity is limited. Diagnostics that are rapid, sensitive and capable of use at the point of care make a difference in patient's lives. The AuCoin & Kozel Laboratories aims to be a recognized leader in diagnostics discovery and development for both resource-rich and resource-limited settings.
