Customer voice

Aglukon Spezialdünger GmbH & Co. KG


"For 15 years now, SABEU has proven to be a competent partner for us. The first-class vented cap technology works excellently with our partially gas-exchanging specialty formulations. Immediately after a production run and under extreme temperature conditions during worldwide transportation, the requirements for a high gas exchange of our products are the greatest. In these critical times, we have relied on SABEU for years."

bioMérieux SA

"SABEU has proven to be an excellent OEM partner in providing useful and reliable solutions to the development and manufacturing of sophisticated and complex disposables. Throughout all project and product life-cycle phases we are very pleased with SABEU’s great know-how and expertise in plastics and membrane technologies that are essential for our microbiological testing systems."

Fischer Söhne AG

"We appreciate the good and sustainable partnership with SABEU. We are very satisfied with the quality and adherence to delivery dates, which is also reflected in the positive supplier assessment. Very good communication characterizes the SABEU team. It should be emphasized that we are actively supported in any case of express deliveries. We are looking forward to a continued good cooperation."


"Packaging stability is very important – especially the products which produce gas. FLUXX® Degassing Inserts have been able to solve the problems of our customers with their unique and angled membrane surface, produced with advanced technology and high quality membranes. We fully believe that customer satisfaction will be at the highest level with HF products that are newly introduced to the market. Thank you very much to SABEU for not disrupting the procurement process during the Covid outbreak."


"With the cellQART product line SABEU has created something that is of vital importance for our work and which we are absolutely excited about. The products we work with are easy to use and at the same time robust in handling while delivering reliable and reproducible results. And this applies to the cellQART filter inserts in every respect. Since we have been using cellQART inserts in our experiments we reduced the failure rate to zero. For us at InSCREENeX an essential factor for a perfect partnership is delivering on commitments – And that is what SABEU has always proven to us."

Jibu Corporate Uganda Ltd.

"SABEU is our trusted supplier for Dispensing Taps since inception of our business, more than 5 years ago. The Taps are a key component for our reusable and eco-friendly water container, that enables consumers to buy affordable and safe drinking water in bulk and still enjoy utmost convenience. SABEU is a key partner to JIBU, to support our mission of fostering entrepreneurship and making positive social impact in the communities through access to safe drinking water."


Krystal Kritis SA

"We have a great cooperation with SABEU for many years. Besides the best quality of their products , they are always adhere to the time schedule and there is an easy and pleasant communication."


“We are thrilled to collaborate with SABEU. We have tested SABEU´s cellQART cell culture inserts and they are compatible with our Locsense Artemis automated real-time Transepithelial Electrical Resistance (TEER) detector. The Artemis monitors the barrier integrity and cell confluence, while the cell culture is located inside an incubator. With regular time-intervals, and a monitoring time of more than 3 weeks, the Artemis puts an end to cross contamination while reducing complexity and labour intensity.”

nanoAnalytics GmbH

"cellQART inserts are ideally suited for use in our devices for impedance-based analysis of barrier forming cell cultures. The combination of cellQART inserts with instruments of the cellZscope product line makes a reliable and precise system for automatic measurements of the transepithelial or transendothelial electrical resistance (TER). This allows to systematically study the influence of substances such as drugs, toxins or nanoparticles on the barrier function of cell layers under physiological conditions.”


"We are happy to cooperate with SABEU for more than 5 years. SABEU has attracted us as a trustful manufacturer famous for his advanced technologies, high proficiency, perfect service, logistics and all other business processes. Thanks to our mutual efforts and high quality of SABEU products our sales are growing, we integrate new positions in our product range. We are proud to be a partner of SABEU."
