About Zurich Instruments
Zurich Instruments has revolutionized instrumentation in the DC to Megahertz, and soon the Gigahertz, range by combining frequency-domain tools and time-domain tools within single products. This reduces the complexity of laboratory setups, removes sources of problems and supports new measurement approaches that enable the progress of research.
Scientists and engineers at advanced research laboratories and in leading hi-tech organizations require powerful measurement instrumentation and tools for dynamic signal analysis. Zurich Instruments equipment allows for robust and reliable setups with best-in-class performance thanks to the unique integration of the latest electronic components. This is backed up by scientific staff with detailed application know-how and a customer support organization that is also second to none.
