Product News: Eppendorf to Present Latest Innovations and Extensive Product Portfolio at Biotechnica 2013

24 Sep 2013

At this year's BIOTECHNICA industry trade fair in Hannover from October 8-10, Eppendorf AG will present its innovations and extensive product portfolio across 260 m² of exhibition space at booth F09 in Hall 9.

BIOTECHNICA is Europe's leading trade fair and conference event for biotechnology, life sciences and lab technology. Here visitors can see what modern biotechnology can do for every part of life, now and in the future. The focal point of this year's event was bio-economics.

Eppendorf, a technology partner in the life sciences, will introduce five innovative new products at BIOTECHNICA. Among them are the new Reference 2 pipette, the new Multipette M4 and the new generation of mixers with a total of four new devices. Visitors will also discover innovations in bioprocess technology: the new 1L single-use bioreactor BioBLU 1 extends the existing BioBLU family and the familiar DASbox mini-bioreactor system with a new design.

And as a highlight of the exhibition, the company will present its new 5mL Tube with its complete system. In conjunction with the 50th anniversary of the Eppendorf tube, this unique new product inspired the motto for Eppendorf's appearance at BIOTECHNICA this year – "50 Years of Consumables & 5mL Tube".
