Strainoptics is the world’s leading manufacturer of non-contact, non-destructive stress measurement instrumentation to the glass and plastics industries.
In addition to the internationally recognized GASP® surface polarimeter, our product line encompasses a complete range of instruments, from simple strain viewers and polarimeter systems to specialized on-line and off-line equipment for measuring stress and other optical properties in a wide range of materials, including:
Medical Packaging & Devices
Automated Birefringence Measurement Systems
Our test methods and instruments may be used with almost any transparent or translucent materials (generally a minimum of 25% transmissivity is required). Here are a few of the applications where our equipment has been successfully used to measure residual stress and/or birefringence:
BaF2 and other crystalline materials
Fiber optic preforms
Special glass compositions
TECHNOSPEX focuses on transforming our technical know-how and decades of practical experience in optics, microscopy and spectroscopy to produce high performing yet cost effective optical systems.
Our customers will benefit from our flexible approach towards instrument design and development to solve their needs and requirements. Our products are built around our core beliefs in providing Raman Spectroscopy systems with mapping capability that are
Research Grade Sensitivity
With that, we are proud to offer our first cost effective and yet high sensitivity uRaman module that integrates seamlessly with most major brands of upright microscopes like Nikon, Leica, Olympus and Carl Zeiss.The system is also avaliable in a complete Raman micro-spectroscopy systems, known as uRaman-Ci which consist of an uRaman module coupled with a Nikon Ci upright research grade microscope.
The uRaman-Ci offers multimodality imaging capabilty such as polarized microscopy, fluroscence mircoscopy, and dark field microscopy together with Raman Spectroscopy. Due to its low cost and small footprint, this system is ideal for customers with space and/or budget constraint without having to sacrifice on sensitivity and performance.

Since the start of our company in 1981, our business model has always been to sell the products we design, develop, and import from our overseas factories only through our worldwide network of dealers. We greatly respect the dynamics of the distribution network; this is why we’ve never changed. Our dealers always feel confident that any contact we may have with end-users (i.e. application discussions, technical assistance, drop shipments, etc.) will never result in us selling direct. This bond of trust we share with our dealers allows us to truly work together as a team. That being said, listed below are the other key elements you can always continue to expect from us:
With our many, many years of experience and expertise in the scientific products industry, we are able to provide you with the best value in laboratory equipment and accessories currently available. Our wide product lines cover a large percentage of the items which are used in most labs.
Whether your questions are related to technical specifications, scientific applications as they relate to our products, shipping methods, the status of an order, etc. — our top-rated customer service team will assist you to complete satisfaction.
In the internet age, speed is everything. We keep a very large inventory in our Kirkland, WA warehouse, so most orders ship the same day we receive them. If the item is in stock, it will always ship within 3 business days. Also, all orders are double-checked and professionally packed with care. You can be assured that your shipment will arrive at your facility as ordered. We also drop ship with no additional charges.
