Designed for purification and engineered for science, Gilson, Inc. provides high quality, dependable purification solutions for your demanding liquid chromatography, solid phase extraction, liquid handling and gel permeation chromatography clean-up requirements.

Gilson was established in the 1940s, when Dr. Gilson, while a faculty member at the University of Wisconsin Medical School, began to design and develop specialized medical electronics and instruments that were not commercially available. One of his first efforts produced a Cathode Ray Recorder, an 18" moving paper camera to record images from a cathode ray tube. It was later used around the world in cardiac catheterization labs. By the early 1950s, Gilson was developing electroencephalographs, oxygraphs and physiological recorders.

Gilson has worldwide sales and service supporting the pharmaceutical, biotech, environmental, clinical, and food markets. Our primary focus is on purifying samples via preparative HPLC, automated SPE or through GPC clean-up. Gilson complies with early drug discovery and development through our preparative HPLC systems. And the Gilson automated SPE systems are focused on supporting environmental, food and clinical markets with our GPC clean-up systems targeted on the environmental and food markets performing a wide variety of clean-up applications.
