When our company started in 1949, it was an adventure. From practically nothing, Rudolf Brand together with five companions created the foundations of the Wertheimer glass industry.
In that same year, he founded our present-day company. Starting from the Wertheim facility, our specialists have steadily built up the company. The effort was well worthwhile! Today, BRAND is an important partner for end users in laboratories around the world.
Factory and production
One of the world's largest cleanroom facilities, with approx. 6000 m2 of production space, of which the cleanroom makes up 3200 m2.
One of the most important, fundamental activities in modern laboratories is the careful handling of the ever smaller quantities of liquids used. The precision transfer of liquids in quantities from millilitres down to nanolitres is still a challenge today. Their impressive ergonomic design, high precision, and superb quality have contributed to making BRAND liquid handling instruments known around the world for excellence.
Single and Multichannel pipettes Transferpette S Pipetting system
BRAND has been developing and manufacturing single-channel and multichannel piston-operated pipettes for more than 25 years. Special attention is always paid to optimum ergonomics and reduction of injuries caused by prolonged strain (such as Repetitive Strain Injury Syndrome, RSI)
Research – and even routine applications – in the biosciences are unimaginable today without high quality plastic consumables. Increasingly sensitive detection methods rely on ever higher quality from lab disposables. In addition to pipette tips, filter tips, microcentrifuge tubes and PD-Tips, BRAND Life Science also provides a variety of other high-performance products for PCR, storage, immunology and cell culture technology.
PCR BRAND has significantly expanded its product range of extra-thin-wall disposable products, which were specially developed to satisfy the demands of PCR applications, particularly in 96- well PCR plates. Single tubes, strips of 8 and 12, and, for high sample throughput, PCR plates in 24-well, 48-well, 96-well, and 384-well formats are available. Thus, there is an optimal product for every application.
Microplates for Cell Culture
Microplates for Cell Culture Cell culture is increasing in popularity in the research and development area. Outside of basic research, cells are cultivated today for a number of reasons, including the production of proteins and, in particular, as assay systems. As cell cultures can sometimes be quite demanding regarding their environment, the disposables used for cultivation have to be of highest quality. BRAND has drawn upon its extensive experience in the production of high-quality plastic disposables to expand the product range of BRANDplates® microplates into the field of cell culture
For more than 25 years, BRAND has been one of the leading manufacturers of disposable plastic cuvettes. Macro and semi-micro cuvettes of PS and PMMA are now standard in every laboratory. This product line was extended with the plastic UV-Cuvettes. The UV-transparent cuvettes are available in various types and replace sensitive and expensive glass or quartz cuvettes in many areas.
Precision analysis requires measuring instruments with consistently high precision. Every BLAUBRAND® volumetric instrument is individually calibrated. Statistical process control ensures with a certainty of at least 99.6 % (AQL ≤ 0.4) compliance with predefined specifications. BLAUBRAND® – quality from the very start.
General Laboratory supplies
Sample preparation and storage impose a wide variety of requirements on laboratory instruments. Depending on the requirements, we offer materials ranging from glass to specialty plastics, like PFA for trace analysis
