Characterizing Today's Materials — Discovering Tomorrow's™
Quantachrome innovator of ideas for today's porous material community

Quantachrome Instruments is a global leader in laboratory material characterization instrumentation for analysis of porous materials and powders.

Our Mission

 
The entire Quantachrome company is focused on sharing our expertise in porous material characterization to satisfy your instrument and application support requirements with integrity and first-class personal service. Our highly credentialed team of science and customer service representatives work closely with our customers to deliver an enhanced, individualized level of service upon which we have built our reputation. We set ourselves apart from the competition by delivering superior corporate standards:

  • Employees empowered to satisfy customer’s needs at every defining moment.
  • Advance the forefront of adsorption science discovery.
  • Create complete customer solutions that foster lifelong partnership.

  • For over 48 years, Quantachrome has designed revolutionary analytical laboratory instruments for material characterization laboratories. Our instrumentation is used in leading industrial and research laboratories for the analysis of powder and porous materials’ surface area, density, pore size, pore size distribution, and specific gas and vapor interactions. These physical properties are essential qualities of battery and fuel cell materials, heterogeneous catalysts, hierarchical catalysts, graphene, MOF (metal organic frameworks), pharmaceutical powders, ceramics, carbons, zeolites, advanced mesoporous and microporous materials, biomaterials, foam materials, pigments, and food products.

     

    Quantachrome Instruments offers a wide range of fully automated gas, vapor and water sorption analyzers, gas displacement pycnometers, flow chemisorption analyzers, physisorption analyzers, expulsion porometers, intrusion porosimeters, mercury porosimeters, capillary flow porometers, and tap density analyzers. We also offer rotary rifflers for representative sampling of powders and granules.

     

    We have an unwavering commitment to providing state of the art technology, and unparalleled superior customer service and support. Our commitment to customers is to support you before, during, and after the sale throughout the lifetime of our instruments.
