Tritech Research was started by Andrew Papp, Ph.D. (Harvard University,
1989) a molecular biologist frustrated with over-priced, often poorly
designed research equipment that can make bench science tedious and
unnecessarily time consuming. All the products we offer are designed to
promote research. Some items do this by saving time so researchers can
get more done, while others save them money. Each product we offer has
been designed and tested under laboratory conditions with utility,
convenience, quality, and economy in mind. When customers call to place
an order or for customer service, their questions are answered by a
skilled research biologist who can explain all the features (and any
limitations) of our products. We gladly recommend solutions even if
they involve products from other companies. We are open to, and appreciate, suggestions on how we
can improve our products or service, as well as to new product ideas.
We can even design custom equipment for unique research needs at
reasonable prices. Click HERE to learn more about
our Custom Engineering Solutions.
We are environmentally conscious. Quality comes first, but Tritech
Research makes an effort to use recycled and/or recyclable materials in
our insulations, packaging, and packing. We have unbeatable savings.
Our products are the best values around. Labs outside of California
save even more with no sales tax.
Company philosophy: Our goal is not to have the most customers -
it is to have the most happy customers
(see a partial list, below). Word-of-mouth advertising and repeat
customers allow us to focus our resources on developing new products
and providing great service rather than on sales and advertising
