Charles Chamberland was a French microbiologist from Chilly-le-Vignoble in the department of Jura who worked with Louis Pasteur.
In 1884 he developed a type of filtration known today as the Chamberland filter or Chamberland-Pasteur filter, a device that made use of an unglazed porcelain bar. Chamberland was also credited for starting a research project that led to the invention of the autoclave device in 1879.
He worked with Pasteur and came up, by chance, with a vaccine for chicken cholera.
