Streck was founded in 1971 by Dr. Wayne Ryan, a biochemist at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. Streck began manufacturing hematology reference controls in the mid-1970s when automated instruments were being developed to count the cells of patient blood samples. Prior to this advancement, blood cells were counted manually using microscopes.
