OPTIMAL BIOTECH GROUP, LLC

ABOUT US

Optimal Biotech Group, LLC is an authorized manufacturer's sales representative serving the biotechnology and pharmaceutical market for Northern California and the Pacific Northwest. We are proud representatives of Mettler Toledo Process Analytics, Microfluidics, ABER Instruments, HPNE, Magnetrol, Fluid Imaging and ERA.

OUR MISSION

Our mission is simple: we provide measurement solutions as a required asset for your manufacturing process. Too many times we have seen other firms recommend solutions that are not appropriate for the specific client's needs nor factoring in their production schedule as they routinely disrupt manufacturing operations while they perform routine maintenance on a system. That is unacceptable. We won't bring you down in the middle of the day because it is "a better time for us". We work around your production schedule. We strive to make process measurement solutions integrate seamlessly with your Research & Development, pilot, and manufacturing operations so your business can grow. As your partner, when your business grows ours will grow with yours; therefore, we will work hand in hand with you to support your growth.
