NanoTemper’s mission is to create biophysical tools for scientists to tackle their challenging characterizations

We’re a passionate team

Stefan Duhr and Philipp Baaske

Stefan Duhr and Philipp Baaske set out to build a company to address challenges researchers were facing with the ultimate goal of helping to move science forward.

NanoTemper was started in 2008 after Stefan and Philipp met at Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich. At the time, the effect of thermophoresis was not known within the Life Sciences community, but Stefan and Philipp knew that it was important. Realizing the shortcomings of current protein research techniques, they came up with a method, MicroScale Thermophoresis that was enormously sensitive, and would bring researchers one step closer to developing better drugs faster.

Now, NanoTemper has over 150 employees with representation in 13 countries around the world including Germany, UK, Poland, Denmark, Belgium, Netherlands, Spain, France, USA, Brazil, Russia, China, and India.
