The origins of 1LIMS

Here is our story.

In 2016, Philipp Osterwalder, a seasoned lab technician with a background in biomedical analytics, transitioned from a pharmaceutical laboratory to a testing facility within a food and beverage manufacturing company. He noticed a glaring issue: unlike the automated processes in the pharma lab, quality control in the food and beverage sector relied on manual processes and paper documentation.

This inefficiency wasn't unique to just this sector. Around 80% of manufacturing companies worldwide were still operating with outdated, analog quality control processes. There was a clear need for a technology that could support quality control departments across various industries.

Thus, 1LIMS was born.

Our vision was to create a modern, intuitive, secure, and configurable product for quality control laboratories across different industries.

From a small startup, 1LIMS rapidly grew. Today, we serve manufacturing companies and service laboratories in Spain, the UK, Poland, Germany, Canada, and Switzerland, helping them move from manual to automated processes. Our adaptable methodology identifies inefficiencies in existing QC processes, while our customizable digital solution streamlines data management, boosting efficiency in quality control labs.

On a mission to help QC laboratories work more efficiently

1LIMS was created to change how quality control is managed. Our focus is on building a simple, intuitive, and affordable product that lab technicians love to use and that makes their work easier.

We've been successfully achieving this mission since 2016

Here are some of the most important milestones throughout our journey.
Partnered with Polygal and ZHAW for the "smart recipe" project that uses AI to improve production efficiency and the quality of the final products.
Collaborated with Aurovis to develop an integrated lab execution system, featuring a workflow designer, capacity manager, and real-time advanced analytics.
Successfully implemented 1LIMS at 15 quality and service laboratories in 6 different countries.
Partnered with Metrohm, a Swiss laboratory device manufacturer to integrate with their OMNIS platform which gives access to a range of laboratory devices.
