Who We Are

CE Instruments is an independent company involved in chromatography, mass spectrometry and elemental analysis since 1995, when the Instruments Division of Fisons was sold to US Thermo Instrument Systems. We are based in the heart of the North West, UK, meaning we have strong links to companies and universities in Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds and Birmingham. We take jobs and cover instruments from all over the UK however, and have many customers in Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland too.

For more than 20 years CE Instruments Ltd has been the exclusive sales and support agent in the UK and Ireland for the Flash Smart Organic Elemental Analyser (OEA) products from Thermo Fisher Scientific - the premier CHNS & O Analyser. But we don't stop there. We also supply, service, and repair GC, GCMS, HPLC, Combustion Elemental Analysers (Trace Chlorine, Nitrogen & Sulphur), and gas generators. Our depth of knowledge and experience across a diverse range of equipment means we are often trusted to care for entire companies' suite of equipment in their laboratories.

As a distributor, we provide a one-to-one relationship with you, our customers, which results in stronger support and better results. Every customer can get in touch quickly and easily with knowledgeable support staff that are familiar with your laboratory needs or issues. We pride ourselves on our fast response times and we keep a wide array of parts and materials in stock, so engineers arriving on your site come well prepared for any eventuality.
