RIGAS LABS was founded in 1989 by Dr. Pantelis Rigas. The company started mainly as a distributor of scientific instruments for analytical laboratories. It also provided full technical support (methods development, troubleshooting etc.) to its customers: universities, research institutes, governmental laboratories, analytical & quality control laboratories in industry in general.
At its inception the company’s objectives were to develop techniques and instrumentation for the characterization of substances, applications in the fields of analytical chemistry, chromatography, diagnostics, pharmaceuticals and analytical method development. Over twenty five (25) years in analytical chemistry business, RIGAS LABS has been continuously pursuing these goals, with a consistent desire to develop innovative, effective and reliable technologies.
Starting from zero bases, the Company (that is registerd as RIGAS LABS S.A. since 2003) commenced its activities in its own laboratory at Thessaloniki, Greece and, currently, its main facilities are located in a 1.000m2 building in the Industrial area of Thessaloniki and holds a branch office in the area of Athens (Chalandri).
The Company’s current success is derived from its high level skilled staff of qualified scientists and engineers specializing in chromatography. With product innovation being a keynote, Rigas Labs expertise spans many disciplines and techniques.
The Company is the exclusive distributor of major global manufacturers of analytical instruments such as Thermo Fisher Scientific, Scientific Systems Inc etc.
Our goal is to expand to other areas of laboratory instrumentation and supplies in order to serve more efficiently the research, analysis discovery and diagnostics.
