Founded as a family business in the last century already, Poly-Optik has been concerned with the develpment and manufacture of cell counting chambers, counting net systems and accesories since 1968.

After expropriation in 1972 the company was reprivatized in 1990 and has regained a firm market position since the company - also during the existance of GDR - was very active in both German markets as well as in export business.
