Zurich Instruments is a test and measurement company based in Zurich, Switzerland, developing and selling measurement instruments and delivering customer support in key markets around the world, either directly or with carefully selected partners. We are a growing, independent and founder-led company.
Zurich Instruments makes cutting-edge instrumentation for scientists and technologists in advanced labs who are passionate about phenomena that are often notoriously difficult to measure. Our offering includes lock-in amplifiers, arbitrary waveform generators, impedance analyzers, quantum computing control systems, phase-locked loops, digitizers and boxcar averagers.
We believe that system integration is good. We believe that system integration leads to significant time savings, reduced lab setup complexity, efficient workflows and reliable, accurate measurements.
Our instruments deliver market-leading specifications for sensitivity, dynamic range, feature set, speed and accuracy as a list of Zurich Instruments' industry firsts shows:
We integrate state-of-the-art analog electronics, high-precision digital signal processing, innovative software and intuitive user interfaces into a line of products guided by lean design principles. Integration does not stop at the instrument level. Our instruments also integrate highly responsive and supportive customer care, complete documentation, as well as a high level of professionalism and know-how.
Zurich Instruments was founded in April 2008 by Dr. Sadik Hafizovic, Dr. Flavio Heer and Beat Hofstetter as a spin-off from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zurich). At ETH Zurich they developed a prototype that was used by a team of biologists to characterize and sort blood cells using single-cell impedance measurement. The instrument had to be capable of demodulating at multiple frequencies at the same time and at a high rate. The solution relied on an FPGA-based digital signal processor and sophisticated software and replaced a much bigger setup consisting of multiple instruments. It became the foundation for the first line of highly integrated multi-functional time and frequency domain analysis equipment developed by Zurich Instruments.
Our measurement systems are used in a wide range of demanding applications all over the world. We are inspired by our customers, who are global leaders in scientific and industrial research and development, by our external partners and by each other. Zurich Instruments has a pipeline filled with projects and innovations that we are looking forward to sharing with you. We are open to new partnerships, new collaborations, new customers and new team members.
