Growing to Meet the Needs of Researchers for Over 40 Years

At Med Associates, our focus has been to provide customers with durable, adaptable, and economical research tools that meet their research needs now and into the future. Since its inception, Med Associates has followed a productive growth strategy marked by three key principles:

  • State-of-the-Art Research and Development

Our focus on research and development has resulted in the largest array of behavioral test equipment available from any manufacturer. We are continuously pursuing new product development, product enhancements, and ventures into new areas. Basic research is part of the foundation of our product development process. Our St. Albans, Vermont Science Center is home to our in-house test laboratories. We have a vivarium with survival surgical capabilities and several thousand square feet of lab space. In addition, we work closely with researchers in the field to help us design and refine our research equipment. Over the years we have invested heavily into manufacturing equipment, including state-of-the-art automated computer controlled mills, saws, lathes, routers, electrical circuit board assembly (pick and place), and more.
