It all started at the University of Goettingen, Germany, when former “university mechanician” Florenz Sartorius laid the cornerstone for the fine precision weighing company: In 1870, Sartorius went into business by setting up his mechanical workshop named "Feinmechanische Werkstatt F. Sartorius." His pioneering invention – the short-beam analytical balance – revolutionized work in research labs because he used a new lightweight aluminum.
In 1898, Sartorius established a new production site on Weender Landstrasse in Goettingen which will remain the company’s headquarters until 2018.
Sartorius is converted to a publically traded company. By now the "Sartorius-Werke AG" were divided into four “departments” according to the different product groups: 1. balances, 2.microtomes, 3. thermostats and incubators, 4. geodetic, astronomic & terrestrial magnetic instruments. The company becomes world-renowned in various scientific and technical industries: At the time, the "Sartorius-Werke AG" exports about 60 percent of its production to foreign countries.
Richard Zsigmondy invents the "cold ultrafilter" in 1922. These filters serve as the basis for commercial-scale production of Sartorius separation and filter technology products.
In 1927, together with the chemistry Nobel Prize Laureate Richard Zsigmondy, Sartorius establishes the limited liability company called “Membranfiltergesellschaft mbH”. The membranes invented by Zsigmondy lay the foundation for the development of membrane filtration at Sartorius: For example, Sartorius nowadays manufactures specialty membranes that are used as test strips in pregnancy test kits.
Sartorius’ first electromagnetic force-compensating (EMC) balance, the Elektrono 1, enters commercial production.
The first microbalance for weighing under normal atmospheric conditions is introduced by Sartorius.
The 100,000th analytical balance is produced.
Sartorius builds the first electronic precision and analytical balances. The resulting boom in orders leads to the founding of numerous foreign subsidiaries and contributes decisively to the significance of the Sartorius Group today.
The first nanogram balance sets the world record for the most precise weighing. This balance is used to weigh the moon rocks that astronaut Neil Armstrong brought back to Earth from his expedition.
The first top-loading analytical balance is presented.
The first automatic unit for integrity testing of membrane filter systems is launched.
Sartorius Liquid Handling (formerly known as Biohit) develops the first electronic pipette. Two years later, Proline®, the first commercially successful electronic pipette, is launched.
Sartorius goes public.
The world's first ultra-microbalance debuts with a weighing capacity featuring a resolution of 21 million digits and an accuracy of 0.1 µg. (Picture: Electronic ultra-microbalance from 1974, capacity: 3 g; readability: 0.3 µg)
Sartorius expands its portfolio by acquiring Vivascience (innovative products for cell culture technology, protein purification and ultrafiltration) and Denver Instrument Company (laboratory balances and measurement technology).
Sartorius acquires B. Braun Biotech International, the world’s leading manufacturer of fermenters, bioreactors and cell cultivation systems.
Sartorius buys a 100% stake in application specialist Omnimark Instrument Corporation (moisture analysis) based in Arizona, USA. (Picture: Moisture analyzer portfolio)
Together with the Technical University of Ilmenau, Germany, Sartorius develops the most exact precision balance in the world. With the so-called super mass comparator, one-kilogram prototypes – used by national metrological institutes to calibrate weights – can be calibrated by measuring weight differences in the nanogram range.
Sartorius acquires the liquid handling segment of Biohit, the Finnish laboratory specialist. With liquid handling, the Group adds a key component to its product offering for laboratory instruments.
Sartorius moves up to the TecDAX, the leading index of the 30 largest and most liquid German technology stocks.
Sartorius acquires U.S. based IntelliCyt Corporation, an award-winning innovator and manufacturer of cell screening platforms used in drug discovery, and ViroCyt, a specialist for rapid virus quantification.
