Who we are

Hardin Scientific, Inc. is in the business of innovating traditional laboratory equipment from static state to 21st-century state-of-the-art technology that includes but is not limited to the expansion of analytic data capture, modular construction, dynamic control and system management through mobile and desktop applications.  These innovations ease the stress and strain of cumbersome and costly repair and replacement options that slow down and jeopardize experimental process and procedure.

Founding Principle Aaron Hardin dedicated his life to the commitment of building a business for the promotion of products that help the scientific community achieve the level of analytics necessary to reduce research time for treatments of invasive diseases such as cancer, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and a host of others.
