IS Insect Services GmbH is an independent research laboratory for product testing, pest control and insect breeding. The company was initially founded in 2001 as a spin off from the department Applied Zoology / Animal Ecology at the Freie Universität (FU) Berlin and was subsequently transformed into a GmbH in 2004. The company is managed by the biologists Dr. Hans Dautel and Dr. Cornelia Dippel, supported by a team of biologists and technical experts.
The head office is located on the campus of the FU in Berlin, Dahlem. There we have premises suitable to carry out investigations within our research projects as well as butterfly breeding. Most of the efficacy studies and bioassays are conducted in our laboratory located in Berlin, Steglitz.
Insect Services works together and cooperates with partners from industry, research institutes, and administration departments.
