A 120-year legacy of supporting science and innovation

In 1904, John Townsend Baker founded the J.T.Baker Chemical Company with a mission to produce chemicals of the "highest degree of purity commercially available." This one idea, to better support science and innovation, also inspired the practice of including lab results listing trace impurity levels on labels, giving scientists new insights into their important work. J.T.Baker chemistries quickly established a reputation for quality, data transparency and collaboration. Since that time, the J.T.Baker brand extended to robotic tips and plates used for automated liquid handling and continues to stand for excellence from the laboratory to full-scale production.

Today, the J.T.Baker product portfolio drives innovation across market developments and biologic platforms:

In 2024, we celebrate the 120th anniversary of  J.T.Baker, now a brand globally known for the highest quality and purity chemicals honoring the founder’s mission.
