About Wyatt Technology

In May 2023, Wyatt Technology was acquired by Waters Corporation.

Wyatt Technology invented the very first commercial light scattering instruments incorporating lasers as their light source more than 40 years ago. We have been defining and redefining the state-of-the-art laser light scattering hardware, software, training, and services to meet customer needs ever since.

With a long history of excellence in scientific instrumentation, Wyatt Technology is the recognized leader in innovative light scattering instruments within the pharmaceutical and biotech industry, government labs, medical device industry, academic centers, and companies developing chemicals, cosmetics, food and beverages. For more details on the history of the company and how it started, read A Very Personal History of Wyatt Technology, by Geofrey Wyatt.
