Our Products

At Torrey Pines Scientific, our command of technologies allows us to design digital/fully programmable instruments that heat and/or heat and chill. Our units incorporating Peltier technology (electrothermal cooling and heating) are state of the art. When Peltier technology is combined with our control loop technology it allows us to design units that heat and chill. Our units can hold a temperature exactly at or near room temperature regardless of changes in room temperature. This allows our users the ability to do more precise and wide ranged science.

Our engineers write some of the best closed loop temperature controls in the industry. Our digital units are controlled from their front panel or via an I/O port for use with PC’s and other controllers.

We are committed to developing new products and refining existing products. We always keep in mind our goal - to deliver the high-quality equipment researchers deserve for affordable, fair prices.

In addition to offering our products direct to consumers, we sell to several OEM customers. We’re always happy to meet their needs for quality control and records for their own compliance programs.
