About Us

A little about Siskin Instruments

Siskin Instruments was founded in the year 1979 by Mr. Gopalan Nagarajan with the small group of young and enthusiastic system engineers. Not long after its inception, Siskin Instruments became a popular and trusted name within the Indian scientific community.

Our vast experience makes us very proficient in heating and cooling technology. We manufacture refrigerated and heating circulators, refrigerated shaking water baths, heating baths, immersion coolers, circulators for ultra-low temperature control, vacuum ovens. We’re also in constant touch with dry running vaccum pumps, auto-viscometry systems, ultrasonic baths and high pressure reactors.

Work produces more work. Our experience in the field of process instruments constantly encourages us to design and manufacture precision instruments for the Indian and world market.

Siskin Instruments’ current focus is on the design and manufacturing of the Siskin Rotéva – the trusted name for a range of rotary evaporators. The Rotéva will hit the market in June, 2018. If you wish to be informed about developments pertaining to the Rotéva, please subscribe to our newsletter.

“Our strength is our team spirit and the trust our customers have in us - our true asset.”

We are Siskin Instruments. Hello world!

“The human brain has 100 billion neurons, each neuron connected to 10 thousand other neurons. Sitting on your shoulders is the most complicated object in the known universe.” – Michio Kaku

Siskin Instruments Company, in its first 30 years since inception, was an agency selling and servicing laboratory instruments used for scientific research and ad hoc quality control requirements. That is history.

Siskin Instruments is now a much bigger company engaged in manufacturing precision laboratory instruments which control industrial process parameters. We started in the year 2013. When we started, we spent a whole year working with things we truly enjoyed – high power Danfoss compressors, 32-bit RISC processors and crisp graphical interfaces. We put them all together like the intricate guitar pieces on Catch 33, Obzen OR Deliverance.

The year 2014 brought us instant recognition from many chemists across country. From then on, we never turned back. We look at our past now wishing we can go back in time, replace it and play with MOSFETs and control loops like we’ve been doing as a manufacturing company for years now.

We thought it was a science. We know now it is really only art. It’s beautiful! Everything from circuit boards to syntax trees. They are all driven by logic.
