Tritech Research - Company Profile


Tritech Background

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 campaigns.

Awards and Intellectual Property
