As the bioprinting field continues to grow and mature, SRC provides the newest applications as they come into focus.

Materials Characterization

Materials characterization instruments analyze the physical and chemical composition of materials including Raman Microscopes and more.


We provide force microscopes for imaging the surface of a range of materials from metals to semiconductors to biological tissue.

Single Cell Research

Sphere Fluidic’s technology makes it possible to encapsulate and screen millions of individual cells or biological molecules in a single day.

Pharmaceutical Industry


We carry instruments including light sources (lasers) and spectrometers for producing and measuring light over a wide wavelength range.

Surface Science

Surface science is the study of physical and chemical phenomena that occur at the interface of two phases.

Featured Products

  • The world’s best selling high-performance Raman microscope

    • Designed, developed and refined over more than two decades to make it the most trusted Raman instrument on the market.
    • Superior, research-grade Raman microscope for your current and future needs.
    • Designed using Renishaw’s proven expertise in precision and innovative engineering.
    • Built to last: upgrade, reconfigure, or customise – the inVia Raman microscope is a sound investment.
    • Available in three models: inVia Basis; inVia Reflex and inVia Qontor®.
    • Many options and accessories are available to suit your analytical requirements and budget.
  • The following are some characteristics of the Partica LA-960V2: Particle Size Analyzer:

    1. Advanced Detector Design: The performance of the system as a whole is influenced by the quantity of detectors, angular range, and layout.
    2. Greater Instrument-to-Instrument Precision: The LA-960V2 is engineered to deliver the same performance independent of the LA-960V2’s date of manufacture, the operator’s skill level, or the user’s location. Without the trouble of correlation, get unparalleled instrument agreement.
    3. Automated Laser Alignment in Seconds: With computer-controlled laser alignment, measurements are always accurate. The revolutionary method used by HORIBA allows the alignment procedure to be completed in only a few seconds.
    4. Accuracy and Precision Guaranteed: The LA-960V2 is a highly developed particle size analyzer that can precisely measure NIST-traceable size standards to within 0.6% of specification. Complete adherence to ISO 13320 standards for material measurement on the D10, D50, and D90.


  • The Energy 11 Twin-Screw Extruder can be set up for a wide range of applications encountered in current battery R&D. The fully ported, horizontally split barrel allows for flexible feeding of solid and liquid ingredients. Interchangeable die designs adapt to a range of materials from dry granules, polymeric solid-state electrolytes, and electrode films to wet slurries. Eight precisely controlled temperature zones along the barrel ensure flexibility in processing.

Role of Raman Spectroscopy & Microscopy in Battery R&D

What is Raman spectroscopy? Raman spectroscopy is a non-destructive materials analysis technique in which a monochromatic light source, usually a laser, is directed onto a sample of the materials being analyzed. The interplay of the light and the vibrations of the molecules in the materials generate spectra that can be used to identify materials, characterize […]

XPS Surface Analysis for Battery Research

What is XPS? X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) is a powerful surface analysis technique used to identify the elements in and the chemical states of the top layers of materials. It works by bombarding the surface of a material with X-rays (photons) and then measuring the kinetic energy of the photoelectrons ejected from the surface of […]
