The Rapp OptoElectronic GmbH was founded in 2001, following the predecessor company founded in 1987. The roots of the company go back to 1980’s developing flash lamp systems for uncaging experiments and other flash photolysis applications as the first manufacturer in the market.
Rapp OptoElectronic is now not only popular for standard product range for localized photomanipulation, but also for further microscopy and imaging. Over time, the company has expanded to become a modern and internationally well-known and established company operating together with numerous renowned companies and well-respected research institutes.
Founder of both companies is the owner and CEO Dr. Gert Rapp. He built up the company as an author or co-author of nearly 100 scientific publications in well-known journals for biophysical and neuroscience methods based on more than 15 years of experience in fundamental research in Germany at:
MPIKG (Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces, Potsdam)
EMBL (European Molecular Biology Laboratory)
MPI-MF (Max Planck Institute for Medical Research, Heidelberg)
PREFERRED PARTNER FOR JOINT RESEARCH PROJECTS
