History
Throughout its 60-year history, Advanced Instruments has designed systems to help global customers improve product quality and safety, meet regulatory requirements, and reduce costs. Innovative solutions to common laboratory problems remain our mission.

Advanced Instruments was founded in 1955, a time when electronic automation was just beginning to be applied to laboratory methods. Our first products commercialized freezing point depression technology. Freezing point was a classical method for solute concentration studies in dairy testing.

Advanced Instruments helped establish the method with nephrologists, making it a staple of laboratory medicine. Other early products were flame photometers, a pioneering neonatal Bilirubin analyzer, sweat testing for cystic fibrosis diagnosis, and oxygenators for cardiac bypass surgery.
