Our Legacy
One person can have an idea that changes the world while inspiring a legacy of leadership and teamwork. For  BioTek, that person was Dr. Norman Alpert. As Professor and Chair of the Department of Physiology & Biophysics at University of Vermont, Dr. Alpert was a world-renowned expert in cardiac hypertrophy and energetics. In 1968, he founded BioTek Instruments to manufacture tools for biomedical safety testing. In 1981, he recognized an emerging potential in life sciences and other markets, and took the company forward into microplate-based instrumentation, where we’ve since become a world leader.

Dr. Alpert’s legacy echoes through our culture, where mutual respect, equal contribution and empowerment drive individual and team success. Because of this positive corporate culture, BioTek has an enviable tenure of experience enabling our employees, with their rich depth of knowledge, to offer outstanding support to our customers worldwide.

Investing In The Future
We firmly believe in taking responsible actions today to build a brighter tomorrow for our company, employees, community, customers, and planet. By donating time and resources to local higher education institutions and providing internships to local students, we inspire, shape and mentor the minds of tomorrow. BioTekkers are encouraged to participate in local volunteer programs to strengthen community bonds, while tuition reimbursement programs support personal and professional growth. We invest in sustainability initiatives, such as our two Vermont-based solar energy farms, to support a healthier environment for our employees and all Vermonters.

Think Possible
BioTek espouses a “Think Possible” approach that sets the tone for fresh ideas, unsurpassed customer service and original innovations. As a privately-help, second generation family business, we are unencumbered by the financial goal constraints common to publicly-held companies, and can freely act on our philosophical approach. We listen to each other, our customers, and our partners, and make decisions to invest in initiatives that result in long-term benefit.

This approach, along with our outstanding products, service, culture and stewardship, provides our customers with the best possible experience to ensure their ongoing scientific success.
