The scientific domain is vast with a number of sectors and sub sectors under it. Almost every activity in this domain is subjected to tests, collection of datas, etc. which aids in effective research and result. These are done with the usage of specific scientific instruments, applicable as per the research or testing involved. Apparatus or equipment used to collect datas fall under the category of scientific instruments.
Manufacturers, suppliers, and exporters of scientific instruments, microscopes, laboratory testing equipment/ instruments and scientific educational equipments from India offer high quality and reasonably priced scientific instruments to the domestic and international markets. These include scientific instruments and machinery such as microscopes, pH meters, probes, sodium meters, pocket meters, flasks, conductivity meters, test kits, blood storage equipments, scientific educational kits, thermometers, syringes, surgery sheets, self examination kits, blades, handles, scalpels, pressure controlled ventilators, pulsatile blood pumps, transducers, amplifiers, recorders, glassware, counting scales, surgical instruments, anemometers, test instruments, timers, force gauges, and many other specialized bioscience research products.
The range of laboratory equipments made in India include glass and porcelain laboratory instruments such as diluters, evaporators, electronic balances, centrifuge products, test tubes, filtration units, petri dishes and gloves. Ludhiana (Punjab) is considered the hub of scientific instruments manufacturing and exports.
The Department of Science & Technology of India seriously encourages and supports the projects and programs for indigenous development of scientific instruments manufacturing under its Instrument Development Programme (IDP). About 55 projects are currently being implemented at various R&D Organizations in the country. Identified areas of instrumentation are: Analytical, Medical, Environmental Monitoring & Pollution Control, Test & Measuring, Food Processing, Geo-scientific, Agri-electronic, Textile & Leather Instrumentation and Sensors. With increasing expertise in manufacturing scientific and laboratory instruments and equipments, manufacturers, suppliers and exporters of scientific and laboratory instruments from India are looking towards establishing newer markets and business relationships across the globe.
There are thousands of laboratories operating under the scientific domain. Scientific instruments are part of a laboratory equipment, but are considered more sophisticated than other testing or measuring instruments. A scientific instrument is more often accompanies or coupled with a data logger for data collection. The sizes of scientific instruments vary in size. Examples of big scientific instruments are those related to the domain of physics, like particles colliders, radiotelescope antennas, etc.
The scope of scientific instruments is vast. Their application vary from those used onboard sounding rockets, satellites or planetary rovers and controlled by radio telecommunication to usage in areas to determine voltage, temperature, magnetic field, acceleration, electrical resistance, gravity, distance, sound, amperage, molecular biology, electric charge, and more
