Innovation without interruption for more than 40 years

With more than 40 years of experience in the manufacturing and import of laboratory instruments, Digisystem Laboratory Instruments (Digisystem) is a specialized manufacturer of centrifuges, oscillators, counters, mixers, water baths, ovens and other instruments. The company also imports OPTIMA® brand microscopes and related adaptors and other spare parts.

Most of the laboratory instruments manufactured by Digisystem are sold through agents who receive original equipment manufacturer/original design manufacturer (OEM/ODM) production orders. Users are mainly laboratories in the United States and academic research institutes. In addition, Digisystem also manufactures its own brand, DS, and has established long-term cooperative sales channels in Belgium, Venezuela, the Philippines, Bangladesh, and other countries.

Digisystem is a typical family business. Hale Su, founder of Digisystem, is a production expert and is always able to find suppliers of high-quality, inexpensive materials in Taiwan. He draws product designs himself and has expanded the business incrementally. However, with gradual assumption of responsibilities by the new generation of the family, the company began an era of new product development ideas and production-related digital engineering activities.

An outstanding example: traditional laboratory instruments are traditionally standard gray or black in color. In contrast, Digisystem now applies refreshing colors (instead of black and white) to oscillators. This breakthrough originated from the change brought about when the company decided to use Solid Edge® software, a 3D computer-aided design (CAD) solution from product lifecycle management (PLM) specialist Siemens PLM Software.
