NanoTemper’s mission is to enable researchers to do the best science of their lives

We’re a passionate team

Stefan Duhr and Philipp Baaske set out to build a company to address challenges researchers were facing with the ultimate goal of helping to move science forward.

NanoTemper was started in 2008 after Stefan and Philipp met at Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich. At the time, the effect of thermophoresis was not known within the Life Sciences community, but Stefan and Philipp knew that it was important. Realizing the shortcomings of current protein research techniques, they came up with a method, MicroScale Thermophoresis that was enormously sensitive, and would bring researchers one step closer to developing better drugs faster.

Now, NanoTemper has over 120 employees in 10 offices around the world including Munich, Germany; Cambridge, UK; Kraków, Poland; Copenhagen, Denmark; South San Francisco and Boston, USA; Sao Paulo, Brazil; St. Petersburg, Russia; Bangalore, India and Beijing, China.

We’re scientists ourselves

Mainly made of scientists, NanoTemper believes in a collaboration, placing customers first, and the belief that there’s always a solution to every problem.


Upholding our values is important to us

Our work creates a thriving and exciting culture—one that we all look forward to every day.

Treat each other well
We spend majority of our day at work with our colleagues. Treating others with respect is essential to a happy workplace.

Strive for growth
Achieving great things is not easy. Be ready to do things outside of your comfort zone – you’ll be surprised that you can do more than you thought.

Be ready to collaborate
We lean on our team for everything we do and our success is always a collective effort, not a one-man show.

Own your work
Be passionate about your work. In the end, you’ll be proud of your accomplishments.

Do things differently
Changing the way people do things requires the ability to think outside the box. The key to innovation is to do things differently and not as they were done before.

Take risks to achieve big things
Taking chances can be scary because failure is always a possibility. Success isn’t the only acceptable outcome as long as changes are made quickly.
