JASCO Celebrates 50 Years In The Analytical Instrument Market

April 27, 2017

This year JASCO celebrates its 50th anniversary in the analytical instrumentation market. The company was founded in 1958 by a group of researchers at the Institute of Optics, at what is now Tsukuba University, who required an infrared spectrophotometer for their research. Since a commercially available instrument did not exist in Japan, they undertook the challenge of developing their own. Their combined efforts produced a reliable instrument with excellent optical performance. Other research groups began asking these researchers to replicate the instrument for use within their laboratories. With increased demand for more instruments, JASCO Corporation was founded.

Today, JASCO is located in over 57 countries, manufacturing both spectroscopy and chromatography instruments and continues to meet the needs of its customers with quality products and a pro-active service and support team. The company’s line-up of products includes: UV-Vis/NIR, Dispersive Raman, FT-Raman, FT-IR, Polarimetry, Fluorescence,Circular Dichroism (CD), Dissolution, NSOM, HPLC, SFC/SFE, and Extreme Speed X-LC®.
