Quantachrome Instruments 45th AnniversaryQuantachrome is a world leader in the design and manufacture of laboratory instruments for characterizing properties of porous materials and powders.

If you work with porous solids or powders you and your colleagues at some point should be using surface area analyzers, pore size analyzers, density analyzers, chemisorption analyzers, high pressure gas sorption analyzer, or water and vapor sorption analyzers for full and detailed material characterization.
We offer more than thirty instruments to meet your exact requirements - and Quantachrome backs its quality products with worldwide service, renowned application support which includes our laboratory, LabQMC, and our science team.
