CrystalsFirst GmbH

who we are

Driven to change. Inspired by science. 

our story

What started with a crazy idea from an observation in the lab of Prof. Gerhard Klebe, has become a recognized service provider in biotech and pharma.

We offer top-notch drug discovery and high-performance structural biology services. We offer cutting-edge technology and experience to support with drug discovery projects across protein families and modalities. We provide a variety of stand-alone packages for crystallographic fragment screening and co-structure determination addressing non-covalent, and covalent modalities as well as cryptic sites. We also offer integrated drug research, from early drug discovery to preclinical development.

Since its inceptions in Marburg, we have expanded in 2022 to Hamburg. We have labs and offices at the Germany’s largest synchrotron facility DESY.
