The History of LabX

LabX was originally founded in 1995, with the sole focus on laboratory equipment. Bob Kafato, the founder of LabX, had spent many years specializing in the sale of analytical instruments and HPLC to scientists. He used his acute knowledge of the industry to develop a platform that continues to deliver top quality customer experience and an expanding marketplace for effective buying and selling.

Over time, the website has evolved from providing simple classified listings, to an online auction platform, and is now a premier marketplace where scientists shop. LabX expanded as a business-to-business marketplace to serve the following areas:

  • Analytical Chemistry
  • Clinical Laboratory
  • Life Sciences
  • Medical Equipment
  • Testing and Electronics
  • Semiconductor
  • Industrial Processing

LabX continues to be a leading website in each of these industries for buyers and sellers to connect. We pride ourselves in keeping LabX easy to use and listing the best products available on the market.

LabX is headquartered in Midland, Ontario on the beautiful shores of Georgian Bay and employees over 50 staff across Canada and the United States.
