HomeAbout JASCO



The Japan Spectroscopic Corporation (JASCO) was founded 1958 to provide the local scientific community with much needed analytical spectroscopy instruments. Since then JASCO has grown to become a highly esteemed global company, providing innovative instruments throughout the Americas, Asia, Europe, Oceania, and the Middle East.

How it started

In the mid-1950's a group of researchers in the Institute of Optics, now Tsukuba University, needed an Infrared Spectrophotometer for their research. Such an instrument was not available at the time so they undertook the challenge to develop their own. The result was a successful reliable instrument with excellent optical performance. Soon other researchers began requesting replicas of the instrument and in response to this increasing demand JASCO was founded. Founding members include world-famous physicist Yoshio Fujioka and Nobel Prize winner Shinichiro Tomonaga.  

Over the years the JASCO product line has grown to provide instruments used in teaching, research and routine analysis in areas such as quality control and environmental analysis. The current spectroscopy portfolio encompasses instrumentation for UV-Visible-NIR, FTIR, Fluorescence, Circular Dichroism, Raman and polarimetry.
