The company

Since 1997, Bionis has been providing its customers with its know-how and technical expertise in the field of thin layer chromatography. Since its creation, Bionis has been the official distributor for France and Africa of the Desaga range of TLC and HPTLC equipment.

In January 2020, with the arrival of a new management team, and with the same concern to be as close as possible to its customers, Bionis left its premises in Saint Georges Motel ( 27 ) to move into new offices in Houdan (78 ), close to the Cosmetic Valley.

In April 2023, Bionis will take over the entire manufacture and marketing of Biostep GmbH equipment.

Our philosophy

With the Biostep range (Desaga technology), Bionis offers a range of equipment that facilitates and secures all the TLC steps encountered in laboratories in the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries, analytical laboratories and universities.

The Iatroscan TLC/FID analyzer from LSI Medience (a Mitsubishi subsidiary) is the solution to the problems encountered by laboratories in characterizing complicated substances, and more specifically lipids or derivatives of petroleum products.

With these product ranges, Bionis’ philosophy is to focus on the sectors and industries for which Thin Layer Chromatography is generally used, with an increased field presence and permanent availability.

Our aim is to provide our customers with a local service, helping them at every stage of their project, from the initial planning stage through to periodic monitoring of their equipment.
