Dr. Jimmy Wang founded Crystal in 1997 after immigrating from China in 1987. He holds two master’s degrees in physics and a doctorate in chemical physics. After graduation he worked for Howard Hughes Medical Institute at UT Southwestern in Dallas, TX where he began creating products for life science research labs. Jimmy decided to pursue a business providing value to scientific research and started with manufacturing tools for protein crystallography. Crystal started manufacturing stainless steel freezer racks in 2003 and have since become the gold standard in laboratory freezer inventory control systems. Crystal began research & development for Benchtop equipment in 2001 and launched in the US market in 2008. Crystal has also been developing large instruments, such as large capacity incubator shakers, since 2005 with a 2011 launch in the Asian market.
