Due to patent restrictions placed on HCV manufacturing and distribution during the 1990’s, the manufacturing site for Murex HCV (microplates) was established in South Africa. The premises was leased during 1996, and the facility which at that point was used as a Distribution warehouse, was converted into a state-of-the art diagnostic manufacturing facility. In June 2010 the site was acquired by DiaSorin S.p.A., together with the UK site and the Murex business.
