About Us

Quorum Technologies - market and technology leaders in electron microscopy coating and cryogenic preparation

Quorum Technologies was founded in 2001, having acquired the long-established Polaron brand and its range of electron microscopy (EM) products from Thermo Instruments.

In 2005 we acquired the previously competitive Emitech brand, allowing us to extend our product range and to grow the business further.

Since the start we have been proactive in responding to industry requests and requirements for new instruments and techniques. This first culminated in the introduction of the market-leading Q Series of vacuum coating systems and PP3010 cryo preparation systems for SEM and FIB/SEM - both true ground-up redesigns that have truly set the standard within the specimen preparation field.

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.

The Quorum Technologies brand continues to prosper at our new, purpose-built factory and offices close to the South Downs National Park at Laughton, East Sussex in the South East of England.
