The History of Multitron
The success story began…
...with company founder Alexander Hawrylenko listening closely to what researchers were saying about efficient lab work. In order to save time during their experiments, laboratory staff liked using multiple benchtop shakers at the same time. If conducting their studies in an incubator, however, they could adjust the rotational speed of each tray, but not the temperature or other cultivation parameters. What if there were a way to save space yet run multiple benchtop shakers under different conditions? The solution would also have to be as easy-to-use and ergonomic as possible, as well as robust and long-lasting. Mr. Hawrylenko and his team of developers got to work and developed a new, well-insulated housing technology that was stable while still offering greater design flexibility. Plus, modules could be stacked on top of each other and configured separately, with the top unit still at a comfortable working height. The Multitron was unveiled in the summer of 1991 at Analytica, one of the world’s largest biotech trade shows.
…and is still going strong today.
What started out as a temperature- and humidity-controlled incubation shaker, turned into a highly configurable laboratory instrument that is now available in 450 variations, including some with CO2 regulation, humidification and cooling options. The Multitron is one of the most well-known and best-selling shaker incubators in the world and has left its mark on INFORS HT like no other device.
