Rudolph Instruments was founded by Hellmuth Rudolph in 1948.
Hellmuth worked in his father’s business, where he participated in the development of the Rudolph Model 80 Polarimeter, the most advanced instrument of its time.
In 1948, Hellmuth founded Rudolph Instruments to further the independent design and development of instruments for the field of Polarimetry. As a devoted engineer, Hellmuth put great emphasis on precision, performance and customer service. These same principles continue to guide DigiPol Technologies today.
DigiPol Technologies enjoys a long track record of innovation. For instance, in 1959 we introduced the world's first commercial automatic Polarimeter. We also developed the world's first fully automatic Spectro Polarimeter and America's first microprocessor based automatic Polarimeter and Saccharimeter.
More recent innovations include our highly successful DigiPol Nova range of Automatic Polarimeters, including the Nova M6U, a high precision UV/VIS automatic Polarimeter, which is now accepted as the instrument of choice in Pharmaceutical Laboratories and Research Institutes around the world.
