Aurora Scientific’s Grand Opening Celebrations!

By In Blog, News Releases On November 11, 2015


Aurora Scientific had a party!

After months of setting up and settling in to our new building, on October 8 Aurora Scientific finally held a grand opening party. The event brought together almost 100 people from a selection of clients, suppliers, associates, local dignitaries as well as families and friends.

The official opening of our new manufacturing facility was perfectly timed, taking place during the same week as the launch of our new website, aurorascientific.com. Designed to inform researchers in three current application areas – muscle  physiology, neuroscience and material science – the website provides information on all our products and systems, with a multitude of detailed photos, specifications, case studies and extensive citation lists as well as online access to manuals, drawings and technical bulletins. Plus it has a contemporary look and feel, like our new building!

The evening of October 8 had something for everyone to enjoy…

And of course, the party

We may have completely overhauled our physical presence and our web presence, but Aurora Scientific still has the same talented, dedicated staff. They continue to design and build instruments that scientists can trust to achieve data that is accurate, complete and relevant to their needs.

We look forward to many more years of being a trusted partner to researchers around the world, providing equipment that promises performance, precision and progress. And we look forward to doing this from our new home.
