Innovation that works for you

At Advanced Instruments, we understand that professionals in the healthcare and life science industries are under pressure to meet many, sometimes competing demands, such as the need to balance tight deadlines with a rigorous commitment to quality.

Through reliable products and services, ongoing training, responsive service, and reliable support, our mission is to deliver innovation that works for you.

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.

Whether you need to develop high-producing cell lines, maintain optimal cell growth, provide assurance of clonality, ensure active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) purity and yield, or confirm quality during fill and finishing, we provide superior products across the bioprocessing and pharmaceutical markets that are designed expressly to meet your needs, complemented with validation services, educational resources, training, and robust customer support.

Innovating in Clinical Chemistry, Microbiology and Hematology

While medical labs differ in size and capabilities, all share the goal of improving health outcomes by delivering accurate and timely patient results. But maintaining strict security and regulatory compliance can get in the way of fast turn-around-times.

At Advanced Instruments, we’re thinking ahead to your next challenge, working to optimize your processes and increase efficiency whether you focus on clinical chemistry, microbiology, or hematology.

Advanced Clinical Solutions set the standard, delivering dependable medical lab instruments, forward thinking educational resources, and responsive support services.

Innovating in the Food and Beverage Industry

In the food and beverage industry, adhering to regulations and maintaining quality control in the face of production pressures not only protects consumers, it’s critical to your bottom line. But meeting these competing demands can also be challenging.

At Advanced Instruments, we develop forward-thinking technologies to help you overcome these challenges and uphold your brand promise and label claims, whether they’re focused on quality, safety, or both.

Advanced Food and Beverage Solutions center on our tools but are complemented by thorough training, reliable service, and ongoing support.

Dedicated to quality

Many companies see regulatory oversight as an impediment; Advanced Instruments sees it as an opportunity. Since our early adoption, and continuous recertification of ISO-9000 quality systems, we have been at the forefront of every regulatory initiative, including: CLIA, CMDCAS, IVDD, ISO13485, RoHS and WEEE.

Focused on customers since 1955

Headquartered in Norwood Massachusetts, Advanced Instruments has spent 60+ years designing systems that help global customers improve product quality and safety, meet regulatory requirements, and reduce costs.

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.

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.
