High-tech instrumentation for your industrial and scientific research

Industrial Process News is proud to announce that Quantum Design has been selected as our Scientific Instruments Company of the Month.

Quantum Design UK and Ireland is one of the leading European distributors of high-tech instrumentation for scientific, academic and industrial research. As part of the Quantum Design International Group, the company benefits from over 30 years’ experience in manufacturing and distributing its own industry-leading automated materials characterisation systems incorporating superconducting technology. These systems offer a variety of measurement capabilities and are in widespread use in physics, chemistry, biotechnology, materials science and nanotechnology.

Building on this expertise, Quantum Design also distributes quality scientific instruments from other manufacturers. Their product range includes thermography cameras, SWIR cameras, hyperspectral imaging cameras, temperature and magnetic measurement and control, ellipsometers, light measurement, optical cryostats and much more. One of the latest developments to the ever expanding product range has been the UK representation of Lake Shore Cryotronics, who recently acquired Janis Research. This deal combines the product portfolio and application expertise of two leaders in the cryogenic research market. QDUKI have recently produced a Cryogenics magazine which you can download at:

This broad product range is backed up by expert and independent advice focused on customers’ applications. “We also have dedicated service support in the UK and Ireland, as well as in Europe and the USA,” explained Angela Carslake, Marketing Manager. “Quantum Design, Inc. instruments are also cited in, and provide the data for, more scientific publications than any other instrument in the fields of magnetics and materials characterisation. This means that each year, literally hundreds of scientific publications advancing the science of materials, use data generated from QD instruments.”

A new addition to Quantum Design’s range is Raptor Photonics’ Ninox 640 SU, a vacuum cooled InGaAs based camera with a 640×512 sensor and a 15µm x 15µm pixel pitch for the highest spatial resolution. The Ninox 640SU is vacuum cooled to -80°C for ultra-long exposures of up to five minutes. These features, combined with its ultra-low dark current and read-noise, result in the best scientific SWIR camera on the market today.

Quantum Design has also recently added the SpecimONE from Spectral Imaging Ltd. This is a spectral imaging platform for the industrial sorting market, helping machine builders, vision systems integrators and other OEMs to improve their time-to-market. The SpecimONE features agile development practices and offers the ability to create new sorting applications without coding or in-depth knowledge of hyperspectral imaging. It is compatible with major industrial standards and allows seamless integration with machine vision systems.

Furthermore, Quantum Design offers a range of thermographic solutions from InfraTec, allowing the analysis of materials and material combinations through application specific components such as infrared cameras, software packages, excitation units and accessories. And, if you would like to discover the vast capabilities of the InfraTec range, you can book a personal online demonstration to ask any questions and discover how it can help your research operations.

As well as its product range, Quantum Design also offers a range of online resources, including a selection of Webinar recordings from Quantum Design and its global partners, offering a wealth of valuable content on applications, products and innovations.

Of course, this is just a small selection of everything Quantum Design has to offer, and if you would like to find out more information, head to the website or get in touch using the contact details below.
