Ellard Instrumentation Ltd. was founded in 1981, we specialize in hand crafted stadiometers and acrylic products for use in radiation shielding, electrophoresis, and biomedical research. We work with many of the fast growing Pacific Northwest biotech research organizations and research facilities throughout the United States, Canada and Europe.
In 1982, we collaborated with a local research doctor, Mary O'Leary, to develop and manufacture a device that would measure and monitor the growth of children. This has become the standard for many hospital and clinics throughout the United States. The O'Leary LengthBoardTM is currently being used in major research studies with Ross Laboratories, Abbott Laboratories, Wyeth-Ayerst Research and the National Institute of Health to monitor growth and nutrition of children. Over the past two years, we have shipped these LengthBoards to Taiwan, France, England, Belgium, Germany, India, Pakastan, Guatemsala and the DRC/Congo.
We collaborated with Howard Coleman of GeneLex Corporation, in 1991, to develop and manufacture an electrophoresis Passive Buffer Recirculation gel box for use in processing and separation of DNA. These units are being used by many Federal and State crime labs throughout the United States.
In 1993, we were commissioned to build a protein chamber to be used on the Russian Space Station, Mir, for studying the growth of protein crystals in a zero-gravity environment.
We began expanding Ellard Instrumentation Ltd in 1994 by upgrading to a computerized data system. This increased our customer service department, and established online communications. We continue to expand into Global markets. Our most recent sales efforts have included Denmark, Finland, England, France, Mexico and Venezuela.
Design and development of new products for several departments includes: Electrophoresis - Microtiter systems; Radiation Shielding - Leaded acrylic shields, boxes and lead covered radiation containers.
As well as development of a specialized line of acrylic Animal Research Products, to assist the lab technicians, in the containment of research animals.
