Click the years to experience our History:

2008

Ten years ago, Dr. Helmut Laaff founded TPL Path Labs under the name „TierPathologisches Labor“.
Historically, the laboratory sourced from „DermatoHistologische Labor Dr. Laaff“.
With the set up of TPL Path Labs, GLP was implemented. Employees worked in 2 shifts: in the morning they performed the routine work of DermatoHistologischen Labors. Having finished that, the work under GLP started, to mark a strict gap between GLP and Non-GLP. First studies done by TPL Path Labs mostly were Tox-studies

2008

2009

With enlargement of the laboratories´ space, different methods, like IHC and Cryo-processes were installed.

2009

2010

With establishing HR and Finance departments, the company welcomed Dipl. rer. pol. techn. Otto Laaff, who from then on shares his profound knowledge of Industry standards with the laboratory.

2010

2011

Ongoing developments within the enterprise lead to implementing „Cutting and Grinding“ method.

2011

2012

This year was marked in TPL Path Labs´ history as the moment when we were assigned to the first clinical study.

2012

2013

In 2013 Ayse Bal, M. Sc. started to work for TPL Path Labs. She now holds the position as second managing director.
The reorganisation of the company and the new concept of acquisition resulted in a duplication of closed contracts with Pharma companies – compared to the year before.
TPL Path Labs´ first presentation at an international exhibition was at the EuroTox in Interlaken / CH.

2013

2014

Simultaneously to the separation of TPL Path Labs and DermatoHistologischen Labor regarding the employees and the working space, the company-logo was modified:
„TierPathologisches Labor“ became „TPL Pathology Labs R&D“. Furthermore GCLP Standards, following EMA guidelines, were established to improve quality.

2014

2015

From 2013 onwards TPL Path Labs was attending different exhibitions within Europe. In 2015 TPL Path Labs premiered at an Exhibition taking place overseas: at the SOT in San Diego!

There our company name „TPL Path Labs“ was evolved. Under the new label, the enterprise started to build up a strong and reliable scientific department.

2015

2016

Within the organisation of a solid scientific team, the idea grew to implement further techniques, like Fluorescence in situ Hybridisation, which now is up and running successfully.

According to the assembly of the scientific dept., Dr. Thomas Lemarchand started to work as first Veterinary Pathologist. Since then he is acting as Experimental and Toxicologic Pathologist.

The relationship of the employees to the enterprise and the immense growth at TPL Path Labs was rewarded with the award “Jobmotor 2016”.

2016

2017

With our reliable and capable scientific background it was possible to set up TCR studies, to standardise IHC, ISH and FISH with high-level equipment and to establish worlds´ largest skin tissue bank.

We celebrated the 25th anniversary of DermatoHistologisches Labor.

Our Bachelor student Lia Oettlin successfully finished her survey “ Staff retention and motivation” in our company.

2017

2018

It is now 10 years ago that TPL Path Labs was founded in 2008. With NGS we are proud to count another forward-looking technology to our service portfolio.
