Hamburg: RWTH Alumni Get Exclusive Look at Eppendorf


At the last alumni get together in Hamburg on Friday, November 20, 2015, around 30 RWTH alumni came together to learn more about the company Eppendorf. This event was initiated by Eppendorf employee and RWTH alumnus Dr. Bernd Petersen.


During the exclusive tour of the company, they learned how Eppendorf was a pioneer in the field of medical equipment construction, creating for example the predecessor of the modern eye laser, the "Ophthalmochirug," and has developed into a global provider of life science products. Eppendorf products can be found in almost all labs around the world. Furthermore, a lecture titled "CSI in Hamburg," discussed how forensic scientists use biochemical methods in the lab to help solve crimes using the smallest amounts of DNA traces and to convict perpetrators. A visit to a restaurant brought the successful day to an end and allowed alumni to make new contacts with one another.

There are new ideas for additional alumni get togethers in 2016 for RWTH alumni in Hamburg.
