About Us

Quorum Technologies was founded in 2001, having acquired the long-established Polaron brand and its range of electron microscopy (EM) products. Since then we have been proactive in responding to industry requests and requirements for new instruments and techniques, enabling us to develop over the years into a market-leading, globally recognised business. In 2005 we acquired the Emitech brand, extending our exciting range and growing the business further.

In 2009 further impetus and investment came with the acquisition of our company by Judges Scientific plc, and a list of other subsidiary companies can be found on our Links page.

We continue to manufacture Emitech and Polaron instruments - now under the Quorum Technologies brand - at our two premises in the South East of England, producing cryo-SEM and cryo transfer systems, and EM (SEM and TEM) preparation instruments. Full details of these can be found in our Product Information section, and we also offer a wide range of spare parts, consumables and sputter targets that can be found in our Catalogue.

If you would like to talk to a member of our Sales team in the UK about any of them, please call us on either +44 (0) 1273 815340 (for cryo preparation) or +44 (0) 1233 646332 (for sample preparation and coating instruments), or email
