CCS Cell Culture Service celebrates its 10th anniversary

(PresseBox) (Hamburg, ) CCS Cell Culture Service GmbH, which was founded in early 2000 by the Hamburg scientist Dr. Oliver Klotzsche and his three partners, was originally dedicated to provide all kinds of cell culture related services. Within the last decade the company has advanced to one of the leading suppliers of cells and cell based reagents for pharmaceutical industries. Meanwhile CCS has 20 employees. Last year CCS launched its subsidiary at the east coast of the USA and has thereby opened a new chapter in the book of its success.

The jubilee has been recently celebrated with international guests for industries and academia. Hans-Dieter Schubert, since many years senior scientist in the department of lead discovery of Boehringer Ingelheim Pharma GmbH & Co KG, has given a comprising overview about how new drug entities are developed today and in the past. In the evening the party was ended with an outdoor barbecue in the atrium of the Centre for Innovative Medicine. In his speech Dr. Klotzsche recalled encounters with people who were of particular importance for the development of the company. However, his major gratefulness was dedicated to the employees of CCS. "Without their engagement and trust, CCS would never have achieved its goals", he said.
