Our Story

Our story, continued from the bottom of our home page…

Another milestone was reached in 2006 when Steve and Linda sold the company to their son, Brett, who had worked in various roles within the business.

Then, in 2014, with a desire to diversify the business, while maintaining the high level of quality products our customers had grown to expect, the company name was changed to Sciencix. Even so, our core line of HPLC replacement products still carry the CTS brand name. Concurrent with the name change, to accommodate our steady growth, Sciencix moved into our 28,000 square foot current facility in Burnsville, MN.

Another exciting development came about in 2017, when Sciencix started offering Mass Spectrometry replacement parts.

A couple of years later, with an aim to continue moving toward our customers, in 2019, Sciencix established a new office in Research Triangle Park in North Carolina.

One constant at Sciencix, amidst all of the change, has been a commitment to building relationships of trust through honesty, integrity and commendable work. Understanding the expectations of our customers is at the core of our process for producing a quality product. Our desired outcome from this process is to provide you with the products you need, when you need them; all supplied by friendly, knowledgeable people at a reasonable price.

We hope that being in business since 1985 speaks volumes to the performance of our repair parts and testifies to our commitment to our valued customers. However, we understand that establishing trust takes time. That said, we are glad to extend a lifetime warranty on all Sciencix parts against any manufacturing defect. We will work with you to try and resolve any issues you may have through warranty claims, product replacement or process improvement.

Thank you for your interest in Sciencix, and we look forward to serving you!

Excellence built into every product…

At Sciencix, every component is engineered and tested according to our guiding principles of OEM comparability in Form, Fit, and Function, which we affectionately call the “3 F’s”.

Form: Sciencix products are tested to ensure the products have the expected shape, color, and material finish.

Fit: Sciencix products are installed in compatible equipment within our own Test Lab to verify a perfect fit.

Function: Sciencix products are tested to ensure they are compatible within the instrument.

To achieve this, our Engineers Tim, Matt and Richard design every aspect of a part or assembly, then source the materials from trusted partners to create a prototype product. Then, our team of Test Engineers, Jacob, Arick, Tevor and Wes rigorously test to ensure each product performs comparable (comp.) to the OEM product. Given our engineers’ years of design, field service and laboratory experience, Sciencix thrives on exceeding your expectations with our existing products, and new product development. Let us know if there is any HPLC or related product that you would like us to develop for you!
