Since its establishment in 1971, Edinburgh Instruments Ltd has become recognised as a leading light in the photonics and electro-optics industries. The company has established a world-wide reputation for innovation, technical expertise and quality in areas of lasers, opto-electronics, spectroscopy and gas sensing.
The company's mission is to bring research and early-stage technology to market or application where it can be used to save energy, improve operational efficiency in industrial processes, provide environmental benefits through alternative energy or cleanup technology, aid in the provision of healthcare services, or simply where it is genuinely innovative.
The company develops unique molecular delivery systems. Its spherical micrometer sizes polymer particles act like micro sponges and absorb molecules while the sub-micrometer sized Hollow silica shells have an internal void space and act much like a standard container.
The company specializes in certain areas of polymer and other materials analysis. Testing areas are: 1) DMA testing for comparing very similar poymers; 2) Nano-indentation using CSM instruments; 3) Thermal Conductivity Testing.
Genetix is an independent business unit within Leica Microsystems. The company provides scientists and clinicians with unrivalled solutions for imaging and intelligent image analysis in the life science and clinical markets.
Graphene NanoChem and its operating subsidiaries, Platinum NanoChem and Zurex Corporation manufacture performance speciality chemicals and advanced nanomaterials from renewable sources including waste materials.
