Optical Activity Limited

Optical Activity have been making polarimeters since 1973 and offer a wealth of experience in this specialised field of scientific instrumentation. All of our equipment is designed with simplicity of use in mind. With their automatic control routines, even unskilled personnel can obtain quick, accurate results, freeing qualified technicians or chemists for other work. Training time is minimised and maintenance costs are very low. We spend a high proportion of our turnover in a programme of continuous research and development to improve and innovate our products. For over 30 years our instruments have been used in education, research, QC laboratories and production plants, particularly in the sugar and pharmaceutical industries.
