The History of Ellab - 70 Years of Experience
Elektrolaboratoriet A/S was founded in 1949 by Mr. Leo Nielsen. From the beginning the company was dedicated to developing and manufacturing temperature indicators with thermocouple probes for use in hospitals and in the pharmaceutical industry.
The logo / brand name “Ellab” was used from the very beginning to identify the company and its products.
A History to be Proud of
Today Ellab offers the most comprehensive validation and monitoring product portfolio available on the market, thanks to the experience accumulated throughout years of close customer relationships.
In 1985 the HFM86 and DM876 Clinical Monitoring thermometers are developed. These are designed to measure and display 8 temperatures simultaneously, and are used with the unique selection of very accurate thermocouple probes for hypothermia therapy, open-heart surgery, etc. They could also be connected to a computer.
In 1982 the extremely thin flexible 6 and 8-point multipoint probes for hypothermic oncology are introduced. With these it is possible to map the temperatures in a tumour and the surrounding tissues during cancer treatment.
In 1981 Ellab A/S introduces the CMC821, with programmable processor, display and printer, to the food industry. At the time the CMC821 is very advanced and it quickly becomes the industry standard and is sold in large numbers over the next 10 to 12 years.
