Company Updates

  • Miltenyi Biotec is revolutionizing imaging with the fully automated, cyclic, high-content immunofluorescence-based MACSima™ Imaging Platform. Part of our growing portfolio, this benchtop instrument performs a fully automated iterative fluorescent staining, imaging, and signal erasing process, using multiple fluorochrome-conjugated antibodies per cycle. A harmonized portfolio including Miltenyi Biotec’s range of validated antibodies, e.g., REAfinity™ Recombinant Antibodies, specifically designed disposables, and the MACSima™ Software ensure a failure-free automated process. Resulting image stacks can then be analyzed on the fly, even when the iterative process is still running. Basic and biomedical research, specifically drug-target and biomarker discovery as well as deep phenotyping, will be the major fields of application. Based on a revolutionary technology, this platform enables the simultaneous analysis of an unprecedented number of markers in a single sample, even on a desired sample area.

  • Miltenyi Biotec GmbH has signed a purchase contract for a non-harmful, fluorescence-preserving, optical clearing process from the University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany. The invention involves an easy-to-use protocol that allows a safe optical clearing of biological samples for microscopy using an organic solvent-based clearing agent. It is the first method for preparing large biological samples for three-dimensional imaging that completely avoids the use of any harmful agents while maintaining fluorescent staining for high-quality imaging. With the support of PROvendis the university has already registered the new process for international patent approval. The new clearing agent unites the speed of an organic solvent with the harmlessness of water-based clarifiers. Tests have shown that the clearing process, including dehydration, of a mouse brain only takes two days with the new protocol compared to 10-14 days when using water-based protocols.

    I have been working at Miltenyi Biotec full-time (More than 3 years)


    Miltenyi has a strong corporate culture which values nurturing your career and providing you with the tools for success. Both stateside and global colleagues do a great job of building relationships so you feel supported in your work/projects. While company growth means more opportunities for change/advancement, you don’t get lost in a sea of employees. Leadership does a great job of knowing who you are and acknowledging your successes.


    Nothing that can’t be overcome by addressing with management

    Advice to Management

    Continue to promote from within, support employee career paths. As the company grows, continue to foster that private, family-feel that sets Miltenyi apart from so many other organizations.

    Field Service Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Miltenyi Biotec (Atlanta, GA) in August 2019.


    I should have read other interview reviews . 2 phone interviews and a Skype interview. Then was asked to travel across country for more interviews . My only request was to finally be told what salary range is before I make trip. Apparently this is sacred information and they refused. Oh well if you’re unemployed and don’t mind being strung along without knowing salary it might be good fit for you . Everyone was nice but not wanting to give salary info kind of unprofessional and a red flag
