A World Leader of Molecular Research Tools

Biochrom is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of Amino Acid Analyzers, UV/Visible Spectrophotometers and Microplate Readers. The company was founded in 1970 to sell and eventually manufacture amino acid analyzers at St. Albans in the UK. In 1982 the now famous Ultrospec range of spectrophotometers were introduced and sold exclusively by Amersham Biosciences, now GE Healthcare

Biochrom has a long history of making quality scientific instruments for a wide range of applications in the clinical, life-science and industrial markets.We are committed to remaining a world class company by the regular introduction of new, innovative and customer focused products as well as by being open to external partnerships which present exciting new commercial or technical opportunities.
