Miltenyi Biotec is back up and running after a malware attack hit parts of its global infrastructure.

The company said in a note on its website: “Miltenyi Biotec is happy to announce that we are again fully operational.” Miltenyi Biotec started up in 1989 in Bergisch Gladbach, Germany. The company offers solutions for cell and therapy research, including COVID-19-related products. It has facilities in 28 countries and has over 3,000 workers.
