Cost effective Laboratory

ABINFO develops instruments and systems for laboratory experiments and pilot line development.

The design of these instruments is oriented for low cost and small and medium sized companies are invelved in its construction.

Our objective is to give access to sofisticated technological work with minimum investment.

ABINFO also cooperate with public laboratories to have access to high cost equipment such as electron microscopes and several analytical instruments.

Prototyping and measurement technology


ABINFO has access to several measuring equipment, some owned, some borrowed by its Fellow researchers and Fellow companies:

Electrical parameters
Mechanical dimensions
