Lucidity brings a whole new perspective to analysis

The ability to analyze foods, beverages, agricultural products, health and beauty products, and much more shouldn’t be restricted solely to centralized labs with highly trained users, expensive labs, and large capital budgets. These types of labs and the systems in them will always be a very important part of our ability to analyze the world around us, but we need to be able to examine the world around us in many more places and with many more people, people who may not have much understanding of the techniques they are using and in locations that require smaller, lower cost, easier to install systems. That’s where Lucidity comes in. We are bringing the power of well understood techniques to many more people and locations. We are reimagining these techniques to find new ways to make them more reliable and repeatable, easier to use, and smaller and lower cost.


We develop easy-to-use, small footprint, low-cost products that allow many more people to analyze the world around them using reliable and powerful analytical techniques that were previously only accessible to those with significant lab setups and highly trained users.


Combining chemistry expertise, modern mechanical design techniques, and elegant user interface design, Lucidity makes robust and simple products that anyone can use that give you the same powerful analytical data as the more traditional systems allowing many more people to get useful information in many more places than they previously could.


One of our core philosophies is to provide the very best customer experience possible whether it’s the user interface, self-diagnosing systems, self-install videos, ability to next day replacement units, or providing world class in person or remote service
