Nanoscience Instruments was founded in 2002 by a team of energetic and experienced scientists with a mission to bring nanoscience and nanotechnology to new users in the advent of the new field of nanotechnology. Instrumentation like atomic force microscopy was just being leveraged for new ground-breaking insights into the nano-scale world. The team used their expertise to guide and support newcomers to this industry and developed strong relationships across many fields of “nano” from education and academic research to industrial R&D and quality assurance.
Quickly outgrowing the spare bedroom and garage, Nanoscience Instruments grew and expanded the team of experts beyond Atomic Force Microscopy. Enabling technologies like optical profilometry, scanning electron microscopy, and nanoindentation rounded out Nanoscience Instrument’s expanding portfolio of products. With each addition of new products and team members, Nanoscience Instruments has continued to grow into an instrument solution provider helping customers solve the most complex and challenging nanoscale problems. Growth led to the addition of a service division to maintain and repair instrumentation. Additional application labs were set up across the United States, in Boston and Washington DC metro areas. Expansion into analytical services with the launch of Nanoscience Analytical allows the team to further leverage their knowledge for scientists not looking to purchase instrumentation.
