Biotrend

"Who we are and what we do"



After more than a decade of experience in the sale and marketing of research products for “Life Science Research”, Werner Hassler, Switzerland and Gunther Jaeger, Germany founded the Cologne based BIOTREND Chemikalien GmbH in May 1988.

BIOTREND was instigated in order to meet the growing demand from customers for an independent and technologically orientated distribution facility offering high quality, yet cost-effective products for biochemical, immunochemical and pharmaceutical research.

Through our innovative strength we are not only providing our customers a vast product range, but also a high quality, first-class service package.

At present we offer more than 5 millions of products that have successfully been implemented not only in the drug discovery market, but also in cancer research as well as other scientific fields.
