Foundation

The Morphisto GmbH was funded in 2005 as the first spin-off of the Senckenberg research institute together with the support of LeibnizX. The name „Morphisto“ is an acronym of the central research and service fields „morphology“ and „histology“ and finds an echo to Goethes „Mephisto“. Thereby it pays tribute to the scientific interrests of the poet as well as to his origins in Frankfurt am Main. Morphisto positioned itself as a crosslink between research and business and is broadly structured in two main fields. The company provides on the one hand services for research and laboratories by producing ready-to-use chemicals or performing contract research for biological, medical and pharmacological diagnostics. On the other hand Morphisto is still carrying on research in histology, immune histochemistry and evolutionary biology. Research results are converted in teaching, apprenticeship and exhibitions through the field of our academies.

History of the Company

2012

In 2012 Morphisto expanded the chemical produktion that lead to a huge enlargement of the companys area. In the field of immunehistochemistry and histology we employed new staff. Our highlights of 2012 are our new Webshop and our HistoATLAS.

2011

The year 2011 startet with a research project funded by the BMBF. Together with several partners Morphisto won a funding for a  3-year research project. In this project Morphisto will develop quantitative screening methods for histological sections stained by immune histochemicals or traditional histological methods.

In context of our educational programm we have developed an exhibition about bionic which has been shown in the NordWestZentrum in Frankfurt am Main. Furthermore, at the End of 2011 an exhibition about comparative anatomy and histology was finished for the Senckenberg Museum.

2010/2011

Expansion to Campus Oberhafen. Since May 2009 Morphisto is running an second location in the east of Frankfurt. Additionally to the premises of Senckenberg about 500 qm of laboratory, production and schooling are available since then.

„Verein Weiterbildung Hessen e. V.“ certificated Morphisto once again.

The established QM-System is completely documented to be certified soon.

The new business area „event organisation“ was born. We assembled the great exhibition „evolution of species“ in NordWestZentrum in Frankfurt am Main and supported Senckenberg with the „Nacht der Museen“ and further events in technical and scientific manner (e.g. „Safari To Early Humans“).
