Eppendorf Moments

    I love eppendorf pipettes. A colleague bought a different one and wanted to show off to mine, but it quickly broke down. There is nothing like eppendorf pipettes.

    I remember the first time I used combitips and the dispenser.... A new world in front of me.

    I love it because is fast and it is one but with a lot of options.... it would be better if size was fitting with containers.... but no one is...

    I love all eppendorf products and therefore I live - of course - in the Hamburg district of Eppendorf!

    The year is 2020 - and for most parts, when the story begins like this, it´s not a good one. For me, however, it was!

    I got a new eppendorf shaker, programmable for 2 steps. Now what´s the big deal, might one ask. The big deal is that I am performing very (very) very long experiments, and the last step are 2 incubation steps with shaking under differnt conditions. It means that after way too many hours of lab i could go home and rest instead of staying in the office another 4h and wait to change the programm on the shaker.

    Thanks for helping me not dread the "big experiment days" anymore!

    Before starting my new job in May I had never worked with Eppendorf pipettes. Since I started in the new lab I have been using them every day and I have been very pleasantly surprised with how comfortable and accurate they are.

    We are also using Eppendorf tubes and overall we are very happy with all the Eppendorf products. Love to collect all the Eppendorf points as well!

    Although we had a plently of pipettes in our laboratory, I secretly admired the set of Eppendorf pipettes that were in my friends laboratory. I asked her many times that mines were not working well and borrowed her pipettes :)

    에펜도르프를 처음 만났던 건 제가 인턴을 하고 있었던 organic chemistry laboratory 에서였습니다. Pipet을 주로 사용했는데, 물론 우리 랩실에서도 지금 쓰고있지만 누르는 부분이 깔끔해서 타사보단 좋더라구요. 그리고 에펜도르프 볼펜이 너무 귀여워여... 가지고싶습니다. 에펜도르프 최고! 연구자의 친구~

    I remember our brand new floor model Shaker Excella arriving on site.

    I was so excited! The delivery people had problems with squeezing it through one tight corner leading to the lab, but it all ended good. Once they leveled it and left, I remember my surprise when we realized the shelf above it prevents the lid from opening all the way up :) So yeah, it was a memorable delivery. However, once we moved the shelf higher, it was such a pleasure growing 12L of bacteria all at once. The sign-up sheet filled quickly and even though this was 10 years ago, we still have this shaker! We purchased a newer refrigarated model since. My PI only trusts Eppendorf :)

    Recuerdo que para mi el mejor momento eppendorf es cuando recibí mi bolígrafo pipeta, tenía una ilusión increíble de poder conseguirlo y no pare hasta que estaba conmigo. Recuerdo buscar todos los eppoints de mi laboratorio, incluso en cajas abandonadas del almacén. Y por fin llegó el momento en que estaba conmigo.

    Mi mayor tesoro.
