Apricot Designs was established in the late 1980’s to serve the pharmaceutical industry with custom built laboratory equipment and accessories.

Apricot Designs was founded by a group of experienced engineers with expertise in mechanics, electronics, computer hardware, computer software designs and plastic laboratory disposables. The primary focus of the company has been on multichannel microvolume fluid pipetting technology for high throughput and drug discovery applications. As the result of years of valuable experience in liquid handling technology, Apricot Designs built and perfected multichannel pipettors for functionality, efficiency, high accuracy and excellent overall performance.

Their innovations include the unique 384 channel pipettors which not only work with 384 and 1536-well labware, but can also pipette 96-well plates. This convenient downward compatibility is the first of its kind. The patented ESP tips provide superior sealing yet require lower loading force compared to conventional tip designs. Apricot Designs is a proven leader with these innovations being the first in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology marketplace.
