Your ideas don’t always line up with traditional catalog products? At Vienna Scientific Instruments, we take pride in applying our knowledge and experience in instrument development, prototyping and manufacturing to solve the technological problems you face in the lab or field. When you "talk custom" with VSI, you work with a cross-functional team of peers who are ready to help bring your ideas to life.
We develop and build research equipment, ranging from chambers and resilient soil corers to automated sampling, allocation and measurement devices. We will either build the open hardware of your choice or design a new product. In any case, we have the ability to provide a one-stop service, from model design to prototype verification, from rapid model manufacturing to make-to-stock production.
A prototype is the working version of your solution. We build your scientific prototypes according to pre-set specifications, deploying a wide range of materials in-house and having engineers specialised in mechanics, electronics and software at hand. Our expert assistance is freeing researchers to focus on innovation. Fast prototyping can be achieved by fully exploiting 3D-printing technology.
Vienna Scientific Instruments is able to recreate custom-made spare and wear parts for many research instruments - including mechanical and electrical parts. To customize or reverse engineer replacement parts we either need a blueprint and detail information on the material or to get hands on a (broken) sample.
Vienna Scientific Instruments provides hands-on technical support to the research community in Austria and neighbouring countries through its Field & Technical Services. Field technicians can be booked to plan, install, maintain and repair technical installations at field experimental sites - alone or in cooperation with research teams / technical employees of the institution.
We offer a wide range of instruments and tools for the natural sciences and steadily expand our portfolio. Currently our products encompasse soil coring and gas sampling equipment, rhizoboxes, minirhizotron camera systems, various insect rearing equipment, and tools for animal behaviour studies. All products are produced on demand according to the requested specifications and a large range of customization options is readily available. Get an overview on available VSI Scientific Products.
