We separate molecules and unite people.
As experts in liquid chromatography, we continue the path of our founder Dr. Knauer: Together with scientists in the lab we develop innovative and individual solutions. We are curious and creative. This makes us the ideal partner for those wanting more than a standard solution.
KNAUER is an established partner in science. We support research and technological advancement today and in the future.
It all started with a soldering iron, a jigsaw and an ingenious idea for a highly accurate electronic thermometer.
Chemist Dr.-Ing. Herbert Knauer founded the company together with his wife Roswitha in 1962. Both are still active as advisers to this day. The couple‘s daughter, Alexandra Knauer, is managing director and owner of the company since the year 2000.
Today KNAUER has become a well-established company with 135 employees that is successfully developing and marketing chromatography devices worldwide.
KNAUER lives sustainability. Not only because we are scientists, but also we care - about the environment, animals and our future.
KNAUER has many initiatives for a greener company. As an example, plastic bottles are banned within the company and bike riders are awarded.
