Prior to this, he had worked for Baxter, Bio-Rad, Millipore and Waters in Europe and Asia. Melingo is a bioengineer who specialises in biochemistry and food technology.

'In his new role at Sartorius, Michael will focus on further developing the global sales, marketing and service organisation of our laboratory division business and strengthen its strategic positioning,' said Kreuzburg.
