Biotek Instruments Celebrates 40 Years

Apr 15 2008 Read 1881 Times

BioTek Instruments, Inc celebrates its 40th anniversary and continues to focus exclusively on microplate instrumentation and software.
Incorporated May 24, 1968 by physiologist Dr. Norman Alpert, BioTek Instruments originally provided test equipment solutions for hospitals
and biomedical institutions launching its first microplate reader in 1981. "BioTek has been rapidly outpacing market growth rates, with a
corresponding increase in reinvested profits," notes Briar Alpert, President and CEO of BioTek Instruments. "This success has greatly
strengthened our organisation so that we are, now more than ever, positioned to increase the productivity and capabilities of our customers."
An unusually high tenure of experience is identified as a principle element of the company's longstanding success, with 63% of employees having been at the company for greater than 5 years, and a voluntary turnover rate of 1%.
"Our philosophy is that business is not conducted between companies or institutions.
Business is conducted between individuals," comments Mr. Alpert. "This is the tenor of how we work every day to serve our customers better."
