In analytical technology and research and development the use of vacuum comes as an essential factor that enables modern applications, for instance in the field of measuring instruments. Is therefore of crucial importance for success in laboratories the selection of suitable equipment and the associated vacuum components. With innovative products such as the new Ecodry plus dry compressing vacuum pump, Leybold tradition is continuing into the future, and has received an award recognizing it.
There are few sectors as innovative as the industries involved in laboratory and analytical technology. The trade magazine "Laborpraxis" has used its 40th anniversary as an opportunity to recognize some of the most spectacular technologies from this period in a milestone series under the heading "Laboratory and analysis technology - yesterday, today and tomorrow". On this occasion, the vacuum specialist Leybold received the Milestone award for vacuum technology in one of 15 categories, which were presented at a major jubilee gala of the Vogel Verlag in Würzburg, Germany.
Group Publisher Gerd Kielburger commented at the award ceremony: "The laboratory and analytical industry is an essential enabler of global research and development - whether in universities or companies. We were able to award prizes to great companies that have led to countless innovations in other sectors and industries with their developments," said Gerd Kielburger during the award ceremony. Leybold stated to be honored and delighted with the award.
