Andor Technology, a provider of scientific imaging and spectroscopy solutions, celebrated 20 years in business on 16 March 2009.

As a pioneer in the photonics industry, Andor launched the innovative EMCCD technology in 2001 with the iXon platform of ultra-sensitive cameras. The company then expanded its portfolio with the Revolution, a range of flexible confocal solutions. With both academic and industrial experience, Andor also provides advanced and versatile CCD, EMCCD and ICCD detectors and spectrographs.

Over the past two decades, Andor has expanded its operations worldwide, opening offices in the USA in 1997, in Japan in 2000 and in China in 2006.

More recently, Andor was the winner of the Cathay Pacific Rising Star Award for dynamism and success by small and medium sized enterprises operating in Hong Kong and China.

Andor's Chairman, Dr Bryan Keating, said: 'Our continued success in the photonics industry is the result of our dedicated and highly skilled workforce, reliable suppliers, trusted distributors, satisfied and loyal customers and committed investors. We look forward to delivering strong value to all our stakeholders over the next decade thanks to our ongoing technological innovation.'
