MOBIO Member Highlight

Every piece of laboratory equipment made by Labconco is a work of dedication with safety, quality and performance being integral to our products and our process. For nearly a century, our goal has been to take care of the people who depend on us. Our equipment is top-tier and is built to outperform rigorous testing and standards. We never cut corners. We’re dedicated to building superior equipment to protect and improve people’s lives. 

Labconco has a long history that started humbly—in a garage. The company was founded in 1925 in Downtown Kansas City, Missouri by salesman Ralph Callaway and inventor Philip Goldfisch. Their partnership brought laboratory products to market for use in agricultural applications, soon expanding into lab safety, lab ventilation, and products for an endless array of laboratory functions. This big little company, nestled on the banks of the Blue River, has since grown into a world class biotech manufacturing company that makes more than 230 different equipment models in 16 product lines for labs on a global scale.
