Since the first microcentrifuge was launched in 1964 as a part of the famous microliter system, Eppendorf is developing, producing and distributing high-quality benchtop centrifuges. Generations of scientists have been working with our centrifuges since then, and their popularity has steadily grown over the years due to their userfriendliness, quality and longevity.
