A legacy of quality and service
NORWOOD, Mass., August 20, 2015 — Advanced Instruments, Inc., a leading supplier of instrumentation for clinical, pharmaceutical, biotechnology, microbiology, and dairy laboratories around the world, announces their 60th anniversary celebration and search for their oldest working osmometer or cryoscope.
In 1955 Bud Wiggin set out to bring advanced functionality to the clinical and dairy markets from his home’s basement office and first coined the term “Osmometer”.

Advanced Instruments is committed to designing, manufacturing, and servicing state-of-the-art instruments used in medical and industrial laboratories.
