To celebrate its 30th year, the company has created online competitions, a retrospective of the past three decades, and will bring news of a changing selection of Multipette special offers throughout the year. (Check them out at:
Multipette plus, Multipette stream/Xstream, together with Combitips plus, are essential tools for fast, convenient dispensing of long series, Eppendorf points out. On the website, users are invited to enter the My Multipette and me photographic competition by uploading imaginative images, perhaps of a decorated Multipette, or 30th Birthday celebrations in their lab. Each month, from April to October 2009, one winner from the online photo gallery will receive an exclusive Mini-Multipette laser pointer. In mid-November, a jury that will include a professional photographer, will select the 30 best photographs for publication on the website. The 30 winners will each receive a birthday cake and  the top three will be able to celebrate with an Eppendorf-sponsored lab party to the value of 600, 500 or 400 euros.
In addition, everyone who contributes their own personal Multipette story, of at least 2,000 characters, will also receive a Mini-Multipette laser pointer.
A changing programme of sales promotions will be announced on the website, including some special packages and a limited edition Multipette. Tapping the ‘History’ tab will lead you to images illustrating significant Multipette developments, as well as memorable, funny and exciting events of the past three decades.
 ‘Multipette has become synonymous with “handheld dispenser”, its reputation assured by unique features, such as Combitip recognition and automatic volume calculation,’ said Dr Sabine Kühn, Multipette Product Manager. ‘Now Multipette fans worldwide can experience the birthday atmosphere and share their photos and stories.’
