The Mission of AcuTech Scientific is to provide the best quality analytical products, support and services to research and quality control laboratories worldwide.  We can provide hardware configuration, method development,  instrumentation, integration, and automation problems in Raman Spectrometry,  chromatography, mass spectrometry, and cancer biomarkers identification and quantification. 

Our Task is to deliver rapidly our expertise and application experience in chemical and biochemical separation, Multi-Site Analysis of Multiple-Reaction Monitoring(MRM) based measurements of protein in plasma, biomarker identification and quantification to meet your time line for solving your research and your product quality control problems.

Our Founders and Engineers have accumulated more than 100 years experience in the research and development of HPLC instrumentation; HPLC column technology; mass spectrometer installation,  HPLC-MS training and services; chemical and biochemical separation, identification and quantification, Raman optical detection, Proteomics and MRM for cancer biomarker research and applications.

Our Goal is to become your Technical Support Center  in solving your separation, identification  and quantification needs. Special focus is on  Raman spectroscopy, protein biomarkers separation, identification and quantification needs in your laboratories. Our new advanced AcuScan1500 automated Raman spectrometer system allows 60second chemical identification and quantification, Data obtained for 100 repeat measurements of polystyrene, lipstick, peptide, EDTA, 10% sugar solution, Pu-erh tea, showed a <05% RSD error for both spectra identification and spectra intensity quantification.

Our HPLC column production staffs have been involved with the column production and chemical separations business for over 20 years. By focusing their expertise exclusively on column production and critical testing of every column, high quality column products are assured. All of our column conditioning and testing stations are controlled by computer. All column packing process, conditioning, testing, reporting follow strict Standard Operation Procedure(SOP) developed for each individual packing material.

After each HPLC column had meet the pressure drop requirement then the column is chemically tested by a computerized performance test program to meet our high performance standard The test data show the column performance based on a highly accurate statistical moments determination. The final test report including the serial number, the part number, and column performance data is enclosed in your column package. All column test reports are stored in our computer server for future use.

AcuTech Scientific’s commitment to quality manufacturing and comprehensive record keeping allows us to offer replacement. Certificates of Analysis can also be offered when requested by laboratories to comply with their GLP requirements. We offer also assistance to customers during their method development, optimization, validation and NDA filing by providing serial number, manufacturing date, sorbent lot, and performance data for every column they ever purchased.

Warranty Statement for AcuTech Scientific Columns
Columns are warranted under the following terms and conditions. We will re-packed, replaced, or credited the charge only if the column fails to meet our minimum column performance specifications as published. The following conditions applied:

  1. Columns are warranted for 60 days from the date of delivery
  2. Columns are not warranted to a specific application. The warranty applies to the original test chromatogram supplied with the column
  3. Damage to the column voids the warranty: Damage is defined as:
    • physical damage to the integrity of the column
    • removal of column end fitting
    • chemical damage to the column packing material due to the use of strong acid or base
  4. Column plugged up due to introduction of particulates or precipitation of sample Material
