A Few Customer Comments
In 2006, we ran a 60th Anniversary Contest search for the oldest, still-operational, NBS Shaker or Fermentor. The contest turned up several shakers still being used after more than 50 years, and fermentors approaching the half-century mark. Below are a few customer comments we received, as well as the equipment model entered in the contest and year it was built:
"We have always bought New Brunswick shakers knowing we can count on them long term."

"My NBS Fermenter equipment is one the most important in development of this company, it’s 32 years old and still is working. It is beautiful."
- 250-liter fermentor, 1976.

"This fermenter is still going strong! New Brunswick has certainly built their equipment to last."
- BioFlo III, 1994
"This equipment has been working for a long time. It is very solid and robust. We have been using it for research as well as teaching purposes. Everytime we used it we realized is one of the best ones. We have other equipment (from another company) and for sure has not worked as good as yours."
- BioFlo III, 1994
"Is great equipment, works perfectly. I love NBS instruments."
- G-24 shaker, 1977
"I also have a second, G-24 shaker. They are built like a tank. Both are still functional and are currently in use."
- G24, 1975
"Was in operation when I started working in 1988 and has been used >5 days a week since that time without ANY problems."
- G-25 shaker, 1989
"I have to say that my fermentors are 15 years old and they work as good as when they were brand new. These equipments [sic] have been and still are really important for my students since they give a better understanding of what I teach them in the bioengineering courses."
- BioFlo III, 1991
"This G-25 Gyrotory shaker was purchased on September 20, 1972 … The instrument is in good working order. I'm not sure we would give it up for a new one. It even survived an unusual incident. About 20 years ago one of my colleagues asked to use the shaker. I said sure and was horrified when I found they thought it was a water-bath and had tried to fill it with water. I cleaned up the mess as quickly as possible knowing my boss would be pretty upset if he knew his shaker had water in it. Once the shaker was dried out it worked just fine."
- G25, 1972
