Analytik Jena AG's company museum presents the history of analytical measuring technology in Jena to visitors, customers, business partners and interested guests over 70 square meters, and showcases the continuation of instrument development at Analytik Jena up to the present day. More than 40 exhibits are on display from the three business units of Analytical Instrumentation, Life Science, and Optics, including many historical instruments from the time before Analytik Jena was founded in 1990 - starting in the 1960s and 1970s, and stretching into the 1990s. A variety of instruments ranging from spectrophotometers, atomic absorption spectrometers, thermal cyclers, automatic pipetters, and refractometers to small reflex sights from the Optics unit are on display.
"Analytik Jena AG is one of the most innovative companies in the world for modern analytical measuring technology. The foundations of our success were laid in April 1990 when three former Zeiss employees established Analytik Jena. With the acquisition of lab analysis technology from Carl Zeiss - including product portfolio, patents, employees, and their expertise - in December 1995, the long-standing tradition, which was on the verge of coming to an end, was continued with great success in Jena. We are still strongly committed to the historical achievements of Ernst Abbe and Carl Zeiss today," said Klaus Berka, Chief Executive Officer of Analytik Jena AG.
