The corporate philosophy of "turning science into solutions" stands for what Sartorius has been accomplishing for over 140 years day in, day out: Utilising the latest scientific expertise to manufacture innovative products.
It all started at the University of Goettingen when former "university mechanician" Florenz Sartorius laid the cornerstone for the company. In 1870, Sartorius went into business by setting up his precision mechanical workshop, "Feinmechanische Werkstatt F. Sartorius."
His pioneering invention – the short-beam analytical balance – revolutionised work in research labs. In 1927, together with the chemistry Nobel Prize Laureate Richard Zsigmondy, Sartorius established the limited liability company "Membranfiltergesellschaft mbH". The membranes invented by Zsigmondy were the basis for the development of membrane filtration – and for today’s bioprocess business at Sartorius. Even to this day, weighing and filtration are the core technologies within Sartorius’s wide product array.
Sartorius operates its own production facilities in Europe, Asia, and America and also has sales offices and local representatives in more than 110 countries.
