Founded in 1977 by Michael Specht, Spectra Services started as a one-man shop operated out of the basement of his home. Initially offering just one line of microscopes, Specht grew his business into a market leader, eventually expanding to include even the most complex microscopy solutions.
Over the last few years, we decided to expand again - this time bringing a large lineup of laboratory equipment and consumables manufacturers to the table. As we strive to put only the best equipment in your labs, we're constantly growing, adding vendors and products to push your research to its fullest potential.
As an authorized vendor representing over 100 globally recognized manufacturers in the global marketplace, Spectra Services strives to provide you value by working closely with each and every one of our suppliers. With agreements with brands such as American BioTech Supply, Carbolite, Carver, ELMI, Linkam, Ohaus, Reichert Technologies, Schott, Yamato, Julabo, Tokai Hit, and Suruga Seiki, we continue to forge ahead in ensuring you get the highest quality products at our exclusive pricing.
In the last decade, Spectra Services has built one of the largest pre-owned and demo inventories of microscopes in the United States, offering pre-owned and manufacturer demonstration units at a fraction of the cost of a new product. From parts to custom-built products, our sales team can work with you to build you a solution from pre-owned products, effectively making even the most expensive and complex purchase cost-effective.
Our knowledge and personal service is what keeps us on top, and we look forward to serving all of your laboratory needs!
