Our unique and vibrant brand is one of our most important assets.

Our brand shows what we stand for and what we offer our patients, customers, partners, as well as future employees. It differentiates us positively from our competition. With our unique brand design and our tone of voice, we can tell the world who we are: Curious minds dedicated to human progress.

For the design of our brand, we were inspired by our core business – the endlessly fascinating world under the microscope. The different shapes and colors are the basis for our brand’s look. All together these elements express our visual identity.

Here you can find everything you need to know about our corporate font and our various design elements. We have transferred the former brand identity principles to our Digital Brand Hub. Our design basics section is now the digitalized form of our brand identity principles and needs to be applied accordingly. 



If you follow these eight simple rules below, your design and tone of voice will satisfy our basic brand requirements.
