It's a well-known fact that many of the big names in U.S. business started out washing dishes or toiling away in a disused garage. In the case of INFORS GmbH in Switzerland, it was actually a vacant kiosk that housed the company to begin with in 1965. The growth of this family firm into one of the world’s leading developers and manufacturers of incubation shakers and bioreactors once again proves just how fruitful humble beginnings can be. Much has, of course, changed since it was first founded, but the company’s uncomplicated corporate culture and family-like atmosphere remain intact. Since day one, INFORS HT has also demonstrated an ability to think outside the box, open-mindedness, creativity and even a spot of irrationality - the pillars of its success. The company is now showcasing the full spectrum of its portfolio at LABVOLUTION 2019, where visitors can catch a sneak peek of the fourth generation of its tried-and-tested Multitron incubation shaker.

Multitron ensures homogeneous conditions, delivers reproducible results and, according to INFORS HT, is the number one choice for reliable, convenient cultivation of microorganisms and cell cultures. Having created some 500 different Multitron designs to date, including one-off custom configurations, INFORS HT caters to almost any precise need in terms of equipment and capacity. To develop the latest generation of Multitron, the company's experts drew on their many years of experience in cell cultivation. Compared to static incubators, the active yet gentle mixing of cultures in the Multitron Cell achieves far better cultivation results, with cells quickly adapting to the mechanical mixing process. Last but not least, cells achieve optimum growth thanks to unrivaled features such as an antimicrobial surface and optional hygienic direct-steam humidification.
