The founders of PyroScience comprise scientists and engineers originating from leading sensor research groups at the MPI for Marine Microbiology (Bremen, Germany), University of Copenhagen (Denmark), the Technical University of Graz (Austria), and RWTH Aachen (Germany). These research groups have been pioneers in developing new sensor techniques with optical measurement principles. Based on this knowledge, PyroScience offers innovative sensor concepts with the aim to provide high performance and user experience. The staff of PyroScience has a deep background in chemistry, life sciences, oceanography, physics and electrical engineering. Therefore, we can offer in-depths support even for very special application demands.


PyroScience was founded in Denmark in 1998. During the first years, PyroScience developed and marketed mainly automized micromanipulator setups intended for microsensor measurements. In 2009 the company was relocated from Denmark to Aachen in Germany. In the following years the product range was extended with several innovative optical meters for diverse analytes (e.g. oxygen, pH, temperature) and a broad range of optical sensor heads based on the unique REDFLASH technology from PyroScience. Since then, we have provided thousands of optical meters and tens of thousands of optical sensor heads to the worldwide research and industrial community.
