Who We Are

Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany is a leading science and technology company that operates across the Healthcare, Life Science and Performance Materials industries. About 68,000 employees work to make a positive difference in millions of people’s lives every day by creating more-joyful and more-sustainable ways to live.

From advancing gene editing technologies and discovering unique ways to treat the most challenging diseases, to enabling the intelligence of devices, we are everywhere. In 2021, we generated sales of €19.7 billion in 66 countries.

We launched the Connected Lab to provide best-in-class tools that are designed to create efficiencies in the laboratory for our Life Science customers. One example is the LANEXO® inventory manager, which rapidly documents lab consumables data in real time.

The LANEXO® inventory manager is a vendor-neutral solution offering complete lab coverage in terms of inventory, safety and compliance management through its custom-developed LANEXO® RFID labels. Users can apply these labels to their entire lab inventory of consumable reagents, whether sold by us or other vendors in the market.
