History

In 1950, Dr. Harry Galbraith established Galbraith Laboratories, Inc. as an independent analytical testing laboratory. Initially, Dr. Galbraith offered Carbon, Hydrogen, and Nitrogen testing, largely marketed to the academic institutions. Today, as then, colleges and universities throughout the U.S. call on Galbraith to handle their analytical testing needs.

From those early, modest beginnings, Galbraith has grown into a multi-million dollar company, with a staff of 75 four analytical departments on campus:

  • Combustion Analysis
  • Metals
  • Wet Chemistry
  • Chromatography

A founding philosophy, which continues today, is to invest capital in the latest technology to best serve the needs of our customers. Galbraith’s current instrumentation is highlighted under the Analytical Techniques section on the Home page.

The Company’s strength and character lie within the community called Galbraith Laboratories: It is about the commitment and responsibility the employees have to one another, our clients, and the general welfare of our Company.
