Our company name, Vitas, is derived from the Latin word vita meaning life. In Norwegian Vitas also is the term for an academic position that in English would be understood as an abbreviation for scientific assistant.

These two descriptions define our unique approach of being an assistant providing state-of-the-art scientific services in the field of biotech, food production, drug discovery, research and manufacturing support to promote a better and healthier life.

Since Vitas was founded in 1994 we have experienced a steady growth and an expansion of our competence and resources.

We are striving every day to deliver high quality, reliable and timely scientific solutions in pursuit of total satisfaction for the customer.
