History of Reichert Analytical Instruments

The Reichert tradition of precision instruments has a proud lineage of innovation that began with the first American-made microscope by Charles Spencer in 1838 and the founding of the C. Reichert Optical Company in Vienna in 1876. For the past 150 years, we have created almost every breakthrough in refractometry that has become a standard of the industry. Although our name has changed over the years, our commitment to innovation and quality continues in every product we design and build.
