Innovating in Bioprocessing

The work to improve health outcomes through drug discovery and development can be a risky, labor-intensive business. Advanced Instruments knows that bringing these innovative therapeutics to market also requires innovations in supporting technology, innovations that can drive decision-making and simplify workflows.

Our Product Development Process: The voice of customers is fully integrated in our process

In order to ensure all of the different requirements are fully met during the product development process, customers are at the center of all development efforts. In fact, a keystone of our philosophy is close collaboration with its customers. The continuous collection of feedback becomes an essential part of the development process when requirements for new products are established. For this purpose, structured feedback is obtained during the entire lifecycle of a device through interviews, conversations, questionnaires and customer satisfaction surveys. Advanced Instrument continuously evaluates this same feedback throughout the process during all customer touchpoints.

Focused on Customers Since 1955

Since 1955

Headquartered in Norwood Massachusetts, Advanced Instruments has spent 65+ years designing systems that help global customers improve product quality and safety, meet regulatory requirements, and reduce costs.

Experts in Freezing Point Depression

Our first products commercialized freezing-point depression technology, bringing the advantages of electronic automation to the lab (a big innovation for 1955!). Freezing-point depression technology was a classical method for solute concentration studies in dairy testing and Advanced Instruments helped establish the method with nephrologists, making it a staple of laboratory medicine.

A Trusted Advisor

Since that time, laboratory professionals have looked to Advanced Instruments for exceptional customer support and leading edge tools for bioprocessing development & drug manufacturing, clinical diagnostics and food & beverage quality control. Our solutions offer alternatives to the status quo, meeting lab and process challenges with practical innovations.
