How it all began


The founder team of PreOmics started working on optimized LC-MS proteomic workflows at the Matthias Mann lab in 2010. After establishing an optimized and easier sample preparation process in 2014, Dr. Nils A. Kulak together with Dr. Garwin Pichler set forth to validate their technologies with external laboratories and researchers. With a lot of support of proteomics experts, engineers and industry designers, they made their first product ready-for-market. The PreOmics team won several awards for their business idea, were supported by various accelerator programs and established their company in the beginning of 2016. They are now located at the IZB in Martinsried just south of Munich.
