EST biochem was founded in 2021 and specialises in practical first aid after contact with chemical hazardous substances. In addition to the research and development of decontamination solutions, the company puts great emphasis on the continuous development of our practical training courses for first aiders. EST biochem’s goal is to be able to help injured persons with fast-acting solutions and well-trained first aiders in an emergency. They are available 24/7 with the well-trained expert advisors in case of emergency. Easy Engineering: What are the main areas of activity of the company? EST BIOCHEM: We distribute first aid products for contact with hazardous chemical substances. For this reason, our customers are mainly from the chemical industry. However, many fire departments also have our products. Other customers are the German Federal Armed Forces (Bundeswehr), police or rescue services. E.E: What’s the news about new products? EST BIOCHEM: Since recently we offer our 100ml pocket solution BodyNeutrAll®-S. Developed for quick decontamination of small body surfaces. Not only acids and alkalis but also hydrofluoric acid can be effectively neutralized in an emergency. From now on we offer all our products in a uniform and above all eye-catching design. E.E: What are the ranges of products? EST BIOCHEM: We offer our customers everything for first aid after an accident with chemical hazardous substances. In addition to gloves, protective goggles, etc., we offer our self-developed decontamination solutions, which are unique on the market. Our products such as the mobile body shower can also be used for hydrofluoric acid. Besides an attractive price, announcement of the ingredients, we also offer a longer shelf life. E.E: At what stage is the market where you are currently active? EST BIOCHEM: The market largely relies on water safety showers. In the past, there were no first aid solutions specifically for accidents involving hydrofluoric acid. With our newly developed products we can help companies even more effectively. E.E: What can you tell us about market trends? EST BIOCHEM: Due to the high demand for lithium batteries, the risk of accidents involving hydrofluoric acid continues to increase. Other sectors such as the solar industry are expanding. Thus a clear market trend is the hydrofluoric acid and the thus needed first aid solution. E.E: What are the most innovative products marketed? EST BIOCHEM: Here we can call our 5 liter mobile body shower BodyNeutrAll®. It can be carried to the scene of an accident. With our highly effective solution we can decontaminate up to 10 people or 50 sqm. It can be used for all hazardous substances. E.E: What estimates do you have for 2022? EST BIOCHEM: Due to the high demand for our products, we see that the European market has largely recovered from the corona crisis and production is being ramped up again in all areas. For us, this means further expanding not only the German market but also the European market by the end of the year. We are planning to enter the global market in 2023.
