Created by Scientists for Scientists.
Instruments for Groundbreaking Science.

When unprecedented sensitivity meets low-noise, rapid scanning times,
the results – and the data – speak for themselves.

Magnitude Instruments: Realizing New Frontiers in Transient Absorption (TA) Spectroscopy and Flash Photolysis.

As the scientists who founded Magnitude Instruments, we envisioned spectrometers that could deliver results we needed, but were lacking, in our own labs.

Our products are the result—self-contained, easy-to-use, compact instruments that utilize cutting-edge noise suppression technology to advance TA spectroscopy toward unprecedented new frontiers in sensitivity and rapid scanning times.

Now catalysis scientists, synthetic and materials chemists, biochemists, photovoltaic researchers and more can make transient absorption measurements under conditions that match those in practical systems.

Better instruments for better science, with the potential to change the world.

Meet The Game Changers:
The Scientists and Researchers Behind Magnitude.

A professor with an inspirational pedigree dating back to The Manhattan Project. A biologist turned chemist mesmerized by cellular processes. A research scientist with a lifelong passion for pushing the boundaries of what is possible.

The people at the helm of Magnitude Instruments are driven by the same boundless spirit of novel discovery and insatiable thirst to understand the world around us that drives all scientists and researchers.

Chances are, you’ll see more than a little bit of yourselves, in us.

We’re On A Mission To Enable Your New Discoveries

At Magnitude Instruments, our goal is to deliver state-of-the-art transient absorption spectrometers that push the limits of sensitivity and are as easy to use as UV-Vis or FTIR instruments. So you can push beyond the current boundaries of solar cell development, enzyme and catalysis research, materials analysis, energy storage investigation, photolysis experimentation and more.

We specialize in nanosecond-to-millisecond transient absorption spectroscopy in the UV, visible, near-infrared, and mid-infrared spectral regions. Our instruments have time resolution as fast as nanoseconds and as long as milliseconds with detection limits as low as 10-7 ΔO.D. We open new frontiers of research that were previously inaccessible.

Our products also support time-resolved emission spectroscopy and steady state absorption spectroscopy to make your control and correlative measurements easier.

But most of all, our transient absorption spectroscopy products are designed to support you — the researcher, the scientist, the product developer, the university shared facilities manager and your the contract research organization.

Advance your research by orders of Magnitude.
