“Measurement is the first step that leads to control and eventually to improvement. If you can’t measure something, you can’t understand it. If you can’t understand it, you can’t control it. If you can’t control it, you can’t improve it.”

H. James Harrington

ABER Innovation… applied

A standard can only be set if the correct variables have been defined, agreed and measured.

Over 30 years ago ABER Instruments pioneered a new dimension to biomass measurement when Professor Douglas Kell and Dr Robert Todd from the University of Aberystwyth and the Centre for Alternative Technology invented and patented a unique method for biomass monitoring using radiofrequency impedance.Fast forward 30 years, and we’re a successful global company with a portfolio of ‘manufacturing ready’ and advanced certified systems already in use in the Brewing, Biotech, Biorenewables and Biofuel industries. And, we’re proud to have many of the world’s biggest pharmaceutical and brewing companies – including Glaxo Smithkline, Novartis, ABInBev, Heineken and SAB Miller – as our customers.
