    The Nucleic Acid Experts

BioEcho believes that even the most routine molecular biology protocols can be improved.

By searching for novel ideas that provide clear advantages over conventional methodology, BioEcho aims to develop innovative products that drastically improve the quality, convenience and speed of standard molecular biology protocols.

The BioEcho team is not satisfied with just developing superior products.

We are committed to encouraging ecological responsibility by proving that plastic waste can be reduced, packaging materials can be recyclable, and the use of hazardous materials can be minimized — without drastically increasing the price or compromising the quality. 

We are BioEcho

  • Founded 2016
  • Headquartered in Cologne, Germany

“We believe that even the most routine ­molecular biology protocols can be improved.”

It all started in a cellar…

Years back, Markus had an idea that would revolutionize nucleic acid extraction and thus EchoLUTION was born – a technology for extracting DNA and RNA in just a single step. 
It was soon clear that this novel technology could overcome the limitations of standard procedures used in molecular biology laboratories and provide more convenience and faster results. Together with a small team, Markus started the first experiments in a provisional home lab. 

The idea became a product and finally a company: BioEcho.

Dr. Markus Müller

Dr. Markus Müller

Founder & CEO

The mastermind behind EchoLUTION, Markus co-founded BioEcho in 2016 and now guides the company’s technical direction. As an expert in purification of biomolecules, he has more than 25 years of experience in various pharma, diagnostic and biotech companies.

We would describe Markus as a freigeist (free spirit) who doesn’t mince matters, a fan of Thailand, and somebody whose door is always open to his employees.

Dr. Thomas Neumann

A passionate commercial leader of BioEcho, inspired by sales and marketing with more than 25 years’ experience and a track record in growing products, services, and equipment business in the life science, diagnostic and biopharma market. He has a scientific training and is an inventor of several patents and application.

A tough dog at first sight, we would describe Thomas as someone who cares deeply about his employees and puts family above all else. Aside from serving clients, he likes to work out in the gym after work and enjoys good food.
