Nalgeneis available at Dom's in Livermore. Dom's provides the Tri Valley area, including Livermore, Pleasanton, Dublin and San Ramon with best selling products from top quality brands like Nalgene. Back in 1949, a Rochester, New York chemist named Emanuel Goldberg developed the first plastic pipette holder. For years Goldberg and his team developed the NALGENE line of laboratory equipment Obviously, it wasn't the kind of stuff you toss into your backpack for a weekend in the woods.But there were rumors floating around about scientists taking the smaller, more convenient bottles out of the lab and using them on hikes and excursions. By the 1970s this "unofficial" use for NALGENE bottles caught the eye of Marsh Hyman (President of the Nalge Company in Rochester, New York). Marsh had a son who was in the Boy Scouts. He and his fellow Scouts used NALGENE lab bottles on the trail. When he learned about these great new uses for his lab bottles, Marsh Hyman went to the Nalge Specialty Department with a mission: "Spread the word to outdoorspeople all over! Tell them about this new line of high-quality camping equipment." And that's how NALGENE Outdoor Products started.
