Culture medium…📚

Present in every laboratory around the world, the Becher is used daily to prepare, shake and heat solutions. 🧪

Yet few know the origin of its name. What about you❓

❤️ From the chemist Johann Joachim Becher who was its inventor 👨‍🔬

💡From Bech, the town in Luxembourg where it was invented 💒

🤔From the German, where Becher means cup🥛

Ps: By the way, what is your beaker for ❓
