RIPAC-LABOR – experience and dedication

RIPAC-LABOR is a pioneer in its field: in 2002, we started manufacturing autogenous vaccines. Since 2005, we have been one of the first private veterinary laboratories in Germany to diagnose pathogens using MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry. To ensure the continuous improvement of our products and services, we work on our research projects with international experts.

In the last few years, we have trained our eye, refined our processes and created a comprehensive strain bank. With every newly identified bacterial pathogen, our MALDI-TOF database grows and provides faster results for the diagnosis of infections. After all, a lot of us are passionate researchers: we come across new questions all the time, and search for solutions. One the one hand, because we are fascinated by it. And, on the other hand, to ensure that we can provide fast help if it is needed.

A solid foundation

With veterinary medicine and microbiology, the company founder is following a family tradition. Her father dedicated his life to bacteriological research and is still passionate about passing on his knowledge to the team. RIPAC-LABOR is aware that not just clever ideas but the personal dedication of all involved is responsible for its success. The laboratory team is intentionally diverse because bacteria's fascinating ability to adapt can only be tackled with interdisciplinary expertise.
