Introduction

As in all other areas, there has been an evolution in the history of the instruments used in research laboratories. Since Pasteur’s time and even since Dr Frappier’s time, several changes have occurred in laboratory devices as well as in techniques. Computerization, miniaturization, and a concern for the health of laboratory employees are mostly responsible for this evolution.

In this section, you can follow the evolution of laboratory devices and work methods from the 19th century until today.
