Razorbill Instruments was founded at the end of 2014. In this year, the new company received several awards and accolades including coming third in converge challenge, Scotland's largest business competition. The company received a R&D grant from Scottish Enterprise to develop new cryogenic instrumentation.


During 2015, the company permformed the required the necessary product development and testing to bring to market a completely new product category - the worlds first compact cryogenic strain cell.


In 2016 the first cryogenic instruments went on sale. In this first year of sales, we sent orders all around the world including numerous European countries, US, China, Korea and Japan. The success of our first products allowed us to reinvest in R&D developing the products we released in 2017.


During 2017 the company continued to expand and launched several new products, including the RP100 power supply and our custom PPMS probe. The items make setting up experiments with our core product even easier.


In 2018 the company continued its impressive growth with the 17/18 financial year, once again doubling it's revenues. In 2018 we launch a radically new pressure cell - the FC100 and recruited additional personnel to adapt and develop our core technologies into products that will open up the large space technologies market.


In 2019, we extended our product range to include the CS200T, a device designed for transmission, scattering and diffraction measurements. The device especially appeals to synchrontrons and our first sale of this new product was to the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory, LNLS.


Through 2020 we are continuing to  broaden our protect range, staying at the cutting edge of cryogenic mechanisms and sensing.
