Scientech, Inc., an American owned manufacturer of analytical instruments, has been serving the laboratory and analytical markets for over 35 years. The Company is a small, closely held corporation, which offers products that are 100% Made in the USA.
The Company was founded in 1968 by Dr. Robert W. Zimmerer, a former physicist at the National Bureau of Standards located in Boulder, Colorado. The Company was conceived as a producer of scientific measurement devices utilizing substantial technical expertise. Scientech's first product line was the original beamless electronic balance, which Dr. Zimmerer had invented. Scientech was also the first American balance manufacturer to utilize microprocessor technology in its line of electronic top-loading balances. This line included the first external keyboard for balances, which could select various functions such as parts counting, statistics, and weight averaging.
Soon after introducing the balance line, Scientech marketed the first commercial laser power and energy measurement system based upon prototypes developed by the National Bureau of Standards. Dr. Zimmerer pioneered the commercial viability of thermopile-based devices, which were rugged, self-calibrating, and extremely accurate. The Company has since developed entire lines of laser measurement systems for both continuous wave and repetitively pulsed lasers.
Currently Scientech is housed in its own facility located at 5649 Arapahoe Avenue, Boulder, Colorado. Although a small business, Scientech is known as an industry leader for accuracy and quality. The Company is a Just-In-Time/Total Quality Control manufacturer dedicated to customer service and satisfaction. Both product lines carry the prestigious "CE" mark of conformity. Scientech is also an ISO9001 registered company. Five-day turnaround for factory service ensures the customer is backed by a highly trained and skilled service team. All products are designed in-house utilizing the Company's engineering team coupled with multiple CAD systems.

AZoOptics speaks to Dr. Keith Paulsen about the importance of breast cancer detection and the introduction of his team's deep-learning algorithm that associates spatial images of tissue optical properties with optical signal patterns measured during an imaging experiment or patient exam.
Prof. Simon Scheuring & Dr. Alma P. Perrino
AZoOptics speaks to Prof. Simon Scheuring & Dr. Alma P. Perrino about their recent research using a new line-scanning high-speed atomic force microscopy technique. The method helps characterize the single-molecule kinetics of wild-type bR (bR-WT) exposed to continuous light and short light pulses.
