MetaPhysiol was founded in 2006 to provide consulting and services in cell physiology and metabolism. According to our expertise we are primarily specializing in classical enzymology:


  • enzyme purification

  • enzyme characterization

  • enzyme activities in cells and tissues

  • enzyme kinetics


The services in applied enzymology are provided in close cooperation with the German biotech company AMP-Lab GmbH.


Based on extensive experience with software-supported quantification of scientific microscopic images (fluorescence-stained human cell cultures, computer-assisted semen analysis), services were extended and focused on quantitative analysis of digital scientific images.
