We are a life science company providing comprehensive analysis and consulting services to clients from research institutions, medical facilities, industry and the public sector worldwide. As an academic spin-off, we are convinced that the analysis of biological data should be as individual as the ideas behind the scientific projects from which these data originate. Only then the results – when carefully arranged to meet the needs of the target audience – can tell compelling stories.

Finding life in data

Founded in Kiel (Northern Germany) in 2015, GbR quickly evolved into an internationally recognized company in the NGS and bioinformatics sector. As of May 2018, the company’s headquarters is located in the Kiel Center of Innovation and Technology (see below). Our customer-oriented analyses set us apart from our competitors, as we facilitate a detailed and individualized data interpretation to an unprecedented extent.

For this reason, the company’s business concept was awarded the Innovation Prize of the GründerCup KielRegion 2016. The continuous further development of the company enables us to expand into other areas of NGS expertise. Supported by a diverse expert network, GbR succeeds in working on projects in a target- and solution-oriented manner within an effective timeframe. This concept has already convinced clients from over 100 countries and regions in the past. In 2017 alone, the company has acquired more than 40 additional clients.

The company was founded in 2015 by the biologists Dr. Sven C. Neulinger and Dr. Henrik Knecht as a spin-off of Kiel University. Both founders are also responsible for the management and strategic direction of the company in the area of NGS and bioinformatics.
