The facility of TPL is located in Freiburg, Germany – right in the middle of Europe.

Our 1300 m² laboratory facility encloses a well-appointed administrative department and three separate laboratory units, well equipped with high-quality instruments and special-education teams according to national and international compliance requirements (GLP/GCLP). The GLP unit is a special department for preclinical and clinical studies which have to be conducted under particularly strict regulatory conditions. It is GLP-certified and complies with GCLP.


Our staff is organised in units (GLP) and in Key Accounts. Every staff member is specifically trained and educated for the respective unit. In addition, individual staff members are allocated to Key Accounts where they are trained for client-specific studies.
