Quantachrome’s philosophy is to not just provide superior technology, but rather provide technology solutions that meet our customers’ particular application needs. Although the same analytical instrument might used in a myriad of industrial and academic material research and characterization, our goal is to marry the performance benefits of our instruments to your unique application needs. Our mission is to not only provide you a superior analyzer, but rather to provide you with an instrument that performs to meet your particular application needs in a superior fashion.

To provide you this application oriented approach, we have developed deep technical expertise in the plethora of applications that our products serve. We have a world renowned application science staff that does ground breaking research, in collaboration with numerous global research partners. Our scientists regularly travel the world giving lectures, symposiums, and workshops on the state of the art of adsorption, and characterization of nanoporous materials. We have numerous PhD scientists on staff that have held positions in leading academic and commercial labs prior to joining Quantachrome. Our science staff also sits on the bodies of many ASTM, ISO, and IUPAC committees. Our Director of Applied Science, Dr. Matthias Thommes, is also scientific consultant for the NIST (U.S. National Institute of Standards) FACT (Facility for Adsorbent Characterization and Testing) laboratory in Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA.
