For the last 50 years, our customers have referred to Eppendorf Safe-Lock Tubes simply as Eppis. As a controller, I know how much we have improved. I contribute to making our processes even more economical.

Excellence often takes place behind the scenes. This is what I am working towards as a product manager: Our tubes available in Biopur® purity grade are produced almost fully automatically in clean rooms with high-precision injection molding systems.
