About the company BioSciTec GmbH

The company BioSciTec GmbH is developing, manufacturing and marketing imaging solutions in the field of biosciences. Our portfolio includes systems for (semi-)automated analysing of test strips, colony counting and gel documentation.

The company was founded in 1997 by Dr. Robert Jäger in Marburg. During the first years the gel documentation software „GelScan“ and the microscopy tool „CellExplorer“ were developed and successfully marketed.

After the renaming to BioSciTec GmbH and relocation to Frankfurt at the end of 2001, the field of laboratory diagnostics was established as a new market segment with the development of the „BLOTrix“ software for the assessment of infection test strips.

Since the middle of the first decade of the 2000s the development and manufacturing of optical reading devices became equally important as the production of software. With the joining of Felix Dirla as second owner-manager the „BLOTrix“ system was CE labelled and the internationalisation of the company  was expedited.

Today, automated strip reading in the field of laboratory diagnostics is hardly imaginable without the company BioSciTec GmbH. We now cooperate with the leading test strip manufacturers worldwide and our soluteions reached a leading market position in the year 2007.

At our headquarter in Frankfurt, Germany we are working with an interdisciplinary team which speaks the language of life sciences equally well as that of information technology and mathematics or image processing. Together with our professional project management this guarantees on-schedule implementation of customer requirements.


We are looking forward to meeting you!

Dr. Robert Jäger
