About Us

Apricot Designs HQ
Apricot Designs, Inc. Headquarters • Covina, California, U.S.A.

At Apricot Designs, we are proud to call ourselves specialists in multichannel microvolume pipettors, disposable pipette tips, and high-performance solvent evaporators. For over a decade, we have provided products to satisfied customers such as Pfizer, Abbott, Merck, Genentech, Amgen, Roche, AstraZeneca ... and many others. The key to our continued success is that we work closely with our customers, who constantly provide us with valuable feedback. As a result, our products reflect the latest demands in the forefront of the industry.

Our innovations include the unique 384 channel pipettors which not only work with 384 and 1536-well labware, but can also pipette 96-well labware! 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. These innovations are the first in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology markets!

To further help you stay ahead of the competition, we also provide custom design, consultation, manufacturing and/or modification of instruments. When it comes to customer satisfaction, we always believe in going that extra step!

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. In addition to our design and development capabilities, we also are supported with our in-house machine shop. This allows us to quickly respond to the needs of our customers for any custom equipment or equipment modifications. 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.

At Apricot Designs we all share the same vision of excellence in the work that we do and product innovations that make sense.
