Micro Essential

Micro Essential Laboratory, Inc. was founded by Walter Florin in 1934. Walter began experimenting with different dyes and chemicals and their application to pH measurement, and noticed a genuine need for a solution to standardized pH testing. With this need in mind, Walter manufactured his first hand-made pH paper while working at his familyís pharmacy. The papers created by Walter soon became a profitable business, and he named his small company Micro Essential Laboratory, Inc.

Over the years Walter gained broad experience in the use of dyes and began experimenting with pH testing for a variety of different applications. His efforts paid off with the development of the pHydrion line of pH strips, sanitizer test papers, and pH buffer standards, along with various specialty test papers. Micro Essential Laboratoryís products became an industry standard known for quality, accuracy, and reliability.
