Ideation - Still great science after two decades
The GBC LC series HPLC pumps were designed in 1987 and are still in production today. This is quite amazing given the technology changes over almost two and a half decades. The scientific instrument industry in Victoria in the mid eighties, including companies like Varian Techtron, BWD, GBC, and ICI Instruments, were a rich source of clients for young industrial design consultancy practices like Jon Seddon and Alan Howarth's, Ideation. Jon had worked at Philips CID Clayton after graduating from Canberra and they both worked at PA Technology/Invetech before starting Ideation.
