MicroMol: the fine art of life science
Who says that MicroMol offers high class laboratory analytics, is absolutely right. But that’s not all.
Our employees are here for our customers. Your personal contact person knows exactly your concerns and goals you are looking for. Our customers know that they do not receive off-the-shelf results, nor robotic analysis with big failure rates, but accurate, well thought-out and verified results for security rather than waste. They can build on that.
Expect more than just analytics
We take care of our tasks with great passion. Each head of department is also a scientist on the pulse of the time. We not only know our customers, but also their market. We follow the technical developments and take care to implement them as well as to optimize them. We offer this expertise to our customers in a dialogue about the most meaningful examination procedures. Get to know us and convince yourself: We offer much more than just perfect analytics.
We enjoy going to work every day and for good reason: we can invest our sense of responsibility for the safety of products to satisfy our customers. We can help making the world a little better. It was with this claim that we founded the company in 1996, and it still applies today.
Two biologists (Andrea and Andreas Dreusch) opened a small laboratory in the first incubator in Karlsruhe in 1996. In a historic industrial ambience, the first molecular biological special projects were carried out, for which at that time hardly any other laboratory was found worldwide. The laboratory was named after “microbiology and molecular biology” and “μMole”. The name summarized the technical basics and the precision in one concept.
In 2007, Wolfgang Rudy, a former fellow student, visited the founders. His cell biological expertise completed the company’s knowledge in an outstanding manner. He joined the company as Chief Scientific Officer (now also Prokurist) and not only expanded the technical capabilities, but catapulted the company from the field of research into the exclusive environment of the GMP examinations.
In its 22nd year, MicroMol took a big step into the future and joined the Tentamus Laboratory-Group to offer its customers an even wider range of services. In addition to the meanwhile extensive range of services in the cell biological and immunological area, the possibilities in clinical trials have now been expanded. After two decades of complex, demanding project work, the research laboratory has become a reliable and experienced “Clinical Research Organization” CRO.
MicroMol has been different from other labs from the beginning – a laboratory that not only performs accurate routine analysis, but also delves deeply into customers concerns, finding innovative solutions, and exploring extraordinary ways to achieve the most effective results for the client and its customers.
We follow a mission statement that gives first priority to the benefits for our customers. And with every job, every project, we strive to extent our knowledge and experience.
Our corporate mission statement
We want to deliver an accurate, excellent and transparent service that our customers can trust in and that fully meets their expectations.
Our principles that we pursue every day:
Reliability is at the heart of MicroMol – it has always been and always will be. We maintain our accreditations and approvals, and participate in numerous ring trials and laboratory comparisons to maintain our accuracy. We work to worldwide standards and with the utmost care and learn from every project
We are a team and consider our work not just as a job but as a passion. We live diversity, acceptance and mindfulness. We always treat each other and our customers with respect and dignity. We mutually agree to meet this high standard.
Even though we have a lot to do, we focus on our customers and try to fulfill their expectations in the best possible way. We are polite and friendly and strive to make our clients’ tasks easier. Of course, it’s all about perfect laboratory results. But our work goes far beyond that. It’s essentially about the perfect service.
Our sister laboratories in the Tentamus Group
The laboratories of the Tentamus Group have committed themselves to the same “Code of Conduct”. We know that when we place complementary services in the hands of a sister laboratory, our promises to our customers are fulfilled by them in every area. We work together in a trusting and direct, short way and rely on each other. So we became a one-stop shop that can offer a highly-performing service portfolio with personal customer service.
