Applied Microspheres was founded in 2011 as a sister company of Distrilab Particle Technology. For over 30 years, Distrilab has been a major supplier of particle related products in Europe. Initially as distributors for Duke Scientific and later for the particle technology group of Thermo Scientific, after Thermo acquired Duke Scientific and Seradyne.
Due to an ever increasing demand for specific particle based products and the vast experience and expertise acquired over the years, it was decided to establish Applied Microspheres as a separate company for all its research and product development activities. Applied Microspheres’ headquarters are centrally located in Leusden, the Netherlands. R&D and production facilities are in Mainz, Germany.
