The company was founded in 1962 by Mr. Harald Perten. We are experts in quality control of Grain, Flour, Food and Feed, and offer a wide range of analytical equipment for these industries. We are very active in industry associations such as ICC and AACC.
Perten Instruments invented the Falling Number method and the Glutomatic method, and continues to invest heavily in R&D. We have worked with NIR since the beginning of the 1980s and offer the most advanced, modern NIR instruments today. The acquisition of Newport Scientific in 2007 expanded our product range to cover instruments for rheological testing and dough characterization. In December 2014 Perten was acquired by PerkinElmer Inc and we are now a PerkinElmer company.
Our presence is worldwide through Perten and PerkinElmer offices and distributors, and in total we are active in over 100 countries. The Perten Instruments Group headquarters are located in Stockholm, Sweden, and we have local offices in the USA, China, Germany, France, Italy, Australia, Spain, Turkey and Thailand.
