Where do we come from?


BioChem was founded in 1973 by Dr. Walter Massmann († 1998), a medical specialist in pharmacology and microbiology and a well-acknowledged occupational medicine expert.

BioChem`s laboratory activities started with the analysis of biological and microbiological parameters. Over the years, our analytical service portfolio was extended step-by-step: a variety of chemical and molecular biological testing procedures were added during the 80´s and 90´s.

In 1981, BioChem was registered as a limited company (GmbH, HRB 103147).

As the company kept growing, a new facility was set up and BioChem moved into a state-of-the-art laboratory in 1988 which was partly modernized and renewed in 2005.

Nowadays, under the direction of BioChem´s principal shareholder Dr. Lysan Massmann, we are part of several internationally established business units which are consolidated within the BioChem Holding GmbH.
