microLAB is a spin-off from a 1995 National Science Foundation project called the “CCLI Initiative” – Computers in Chemistry Laboratory Instruction. A group of faculty representing community colleges, liberal arts colleges, comprehensive universities, research universities, and a U.S. Military Academy worked together on the project that resulted in two spin-off organizations: CCLI- an off-campus non-profit educational resource organization and microLAB- an incorporated R&D/manufacturing company.
In 2002, the first hardware, software, and curriculum were made available. All microLAB products are manufactured in the USA.
Since 2002, more than 260 colleges and universities across the world have adopted microLAB products. With three U.S. Patents, microLAB is currently being used in the USA, Canada, Australia, and Brazil.
