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 Rudolph Instruments today.Rudolph Instruments 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 North America's first microprocessor based automatic Polarimeter and Saccharimeter. More recent innovations include our highly successful range of Automatic Polarimeters and the DigiPol 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.
