HEINE Optotechnik: Quality Diagnostic Equipment

Thursday, 6 June 2019

HEINE Optotechnik was founded by Helmut A. Heine in 1946. Helmut Heine was a principled man, and he made sure that the company was founded with four key principles at its core. From graduate scientist to a medical diagnostic equipment creator, Helmut Heine's wish was that those four principles would guide the company in his absence.

The principles were to make a contribution to humanity, to build the best, to make it yourself and to stay independent. It's hard to argue that HEINE haven't strayed far from these four points, with world class otoscopes, laryngoscopes, loupes, ophthalmoscopes, spygmomanometers, dermatoscopes and more, successfully diagnosing patients across the world. This article will go on to explain a little bit more about HEINE, showcasing their products and demonstrating why they are the best.

One Goal for Over 70 Years

HEINE was founded in 1946 with one goal, to create the finest diagnostic instruments anywhere in the world. By achieving accurate diagnosis, HEINE could meet their principle of making a contribution to humanity. As time moved on HEINE's portfolio started to expand, with otoscopes and ophthalmoscopes becoming a big focal point of their efforts in the 1950s.

By the 1980s, HEINE had a brand new factory, had purchased the world's leading manufacturer of medical lamps, and had expanded into selling retinoscopes, gonioscopes and had moved into proctology. This was supported by a move into international markets, with Australia in their sights. In the 1990s and 2000s, HEINE widened their horizons even further, and announced GAMMA, a new range of stethoscopes and sphygmomanometers.

An International Success

By the turn of the century HEINE had moved into the United States. They still abide by the old principles of Helmut Heine, with his influence embedded in the culture, strategy and development of the family owned company. With 500 employees worldwide and a number of factories at their disposal, HEINE are well and truly here to stay.

All of their instruments are still made in Germany, with products undergoing tests that are more rigorous than any other test in the world. For example, the BETA 200S Direct Opthalmoscope undergoes 74 quality assurance checks before it reaches the customer. This attention to detail means that with HEINE, you are always buying quality.
