Bright Instruments

Bright Instruments Limited is a privately owned business. We supply a quality range of cryostats, microtomes, freezing units and accessories to pathology, histopathology, immunology, life sciences, research and industrial testing & quality control laboratories world-wide.

We have established a reputation for imagination, innovation and determination, supported by an ability to deal with some of the largest and best known research and medical institutions in the world.

Being small, the company can adapt faster than most. Each instrument ordered can be individually tailored to suit the customer's requirements and you'll find that no other company can offer a choice as wide as ours. Many features can be retro-fitted, thus ensuring the best possible solutions to the customer's needs.

Bright Instrument Company Limited's forward looking policy of product development continues. Our product list grows regularly with the development of new instruments and accessories, each with its own individual characteristics that reflect today's ever-changing world of technology.

The company takes great pride in its past achievements and the standards set. To ensure these standards were maintained, and to ensure continuing improvements, a Quality Management System (QMS) that complied with BS 5750 Part Two was put into place in 1987. Progress along the road of quality has continued and we fully comply with the internationally-recognised standard BS EN ISO 9001:2008 for which we are continually assessed by the British Standards Institute (BSI). The standard shows our ability to manage and produce quality products to pre-set standards, meeting and, where possible, exceeding our customer's and the market's requirements and expectations.

We were proud to see Phil Batty our international sales manager promoting Bright Instruments at the Medlab show earlier this week! We have had an amazing response and some great meetings and feedback from our customers and distributors alike. Attending the show with a protoype of our new microtome soon to be launched and information on further new models arriving later in 2017 the response has been really positive! With a real push towards the updating of our offering and a strong marketing plan in place for the coming year ahead, we will be attending more industry shows this year and spreading the word with our next generation microtomes and cryostats … The future is looking BRIGHT!
