Customer Testimonials

“The major benefit of working with TA Instruments is access to top-notch instruments, applications staff, and a sales/support team that works collaboratively with scientists and educators to ensure research success.”

– Gaurav N. Sant, Ph.D., University of California, Los Angeles


“As a young assistant professor, stretching your startup package as far as possible is essential to the success of your group. The Academic Matching Grant Program at TA Instruments has provided me a remarkable advantage for getting my laboratory equipped with the cutting-edge technology that is necessary to make new discoveries in research today. This novel program is a highly valued asset that is making a real difference by helping promote the next generation of problem solvers.”

– Travis W. Walker, Oregon State University


“TA Instruments has provided my lab with a rheometer through the Distinguished Young Rheologists program when I first started as a new junior faculty. This rheometer has enabled us to collect quality preliminary data, which further led to the award of a major federal research grant. Also, the rheometer has been instrumental in our public engagement projects like 3D printing chocolates and engineering reduced sugar ice cream. My students and I have many interactions with the TA team throughout the years. They are always professional, responsive, and have gone out of the way to make sure that we and the instruments are well taken care of.”

– Anson Ma, Ph.D., University of Connecticut


““The thermal analysis lab at the U of Connecticut uses TA Instruments exclusively. We have a full set of thermal equipment including 2 DSCs, 2 TGAs, a DMA, a TMA, and a SDT. We have been using the current set for at least 5 and in some cases as long as 20 years or more with very few issues. The instruments provide excellent sensitivity, stable baselines, and reproducible results even with heavy usage from multiple users. There is no need for tedious baseline subtractions or de-smearing routines to collect high quality data. All instruments are very operator-friendly and easy to maintain no matter the level of experience. The analysis software is outstanding and once again, very easy to use. Technical support is very responsive with on-site as well as on-line and telephone trouble-shooting.”

– Laura Pinatti, Research Assistant – Industrial Affiliates Program, University of Connecticut
