About us

In 1979, the company Hermle and our President, Erhard Knorr, decided to establish a new company under the name Hermle Laborgeraete GmbH.

In 1982, Erhard Knorr, as the sole owner has changed the name into Herolab. In more than 39 years Herolab has supplied innovative patented designed microprocessor controlled centrifuges although not sold under the name Herolab.

As Europeans largest manufacturer of Highspeed- and Ultra-Centrifuge-Tubes and Bottles, Herolab is selling these products directly or through partners worldwide as well to other centrifuge manufacturers.

Additionally are the development and manufacturing of Ultra Violet Products (Transilluminators, Hand Lamps, Crosslinker, PCR-Workstations), Gel-Spot-Picking Robotic systems and very professional Gel Imaging and Analysis Systems, including Chemiluminescence.

The benefit for the researchers all over the world is the long lasting quality of our products which is our understanding for "Made in Germany" and an obligation for us.
