chemical analytics

Chemical analytics is a highly complex and exacting process. We make sure it’s no more complex than it needs to be.
Digital fingerprints in 4 minutes
Precision MIR Spectroscopy
Reliable results every time

Results at the speed of excellence

Effective Chemical Analytics is critical to safeguarding quality across life science applications. And speed, accuracy and reproducibility are of the essence in all areas. Which is why we have completely rethought chemical analytics as a service, a unique combination of chemometrics and state of the art spectroscopic technology. Or to sum it up in a few words: better quality results, faster.

What makes an
ideal analytics solution:

Reliable results ensure good science
Go from liquid to code in 4 minutes
Assured thanks to precise MIR Spectroscopy
All in one solution for the entire value chain
Combined effect
Gets you to market faster


Unique performance from a one-of-a-kind machine

Read the chemical fingerprint of a liquid sample. And generate a reliable digital fingerprint. At speed. All thanks to Mira, our proprietary hardware with AquaSpec™ technology. Mira is pre-set to generate fast, accurate, and reproducible data packages without need of time-consuming calibration and sample preparation. It’s the only Mid Infrared (MIR) Spectroscopy solution that allows the highly reproducible acquisition of spectra from aqueous samples. And also the only one that generates a digital fingerprint in the machine.

Mira + Sphere

Adding up to more together

Mira and Sphere are purpose-designed to work together as a unified platform. Together, they enable the consistent, reproducible generation of standardized data, independent of device, user, or location. And as more and more problems are solved with Mira and Sphere, data can be seamlessly transferred across the value chain for the benefit of all users.

By combining Mira and Sphere: we create the global standard for chemical analytics by revolutionizing the way we obtain, translate, interpret, and compare information derived from all chemicals.

This is us

Founded in 2001 by Dr. Robert Seidel, Andreas Wolf, and Ralf Masuch as micro-biolytics GmbH, our company has over two decades’ experience in consulting and developing MIR-based services. While much has changed over the years, including our name, our approach has remained constant in two regards. First, we always question the status quo and, second, we consistently go above and beyond what our customers expect of us.

Today, our team includes 80+ experts in Research, Hardware and Software Engineering, Data Science, Chemometrics, Quality management, and Service. And includes personalities from 10+ nationalities. Together, we’ve built a shared innovation culture characterised by a refreshingly flat hierarchy across our bases in Esslingen, Frankfurt and Berlin. It works for us as well as our customers, who are at the centre of everything we do.
