Kore Technology
About Us

What we do at Kore.


Kore Technology Ltd. has been in business creating high performance scientific instruments based on Time-of-Flight mass spectrometers since 1991. We have delivered over 350 analytical instruments to researchers around the world.


Kore specialises in designing and building customised mass spectrometers, related components, and other vacuum-based equipment. We are able to offer instrument customisation to our clients at sensible prices because we endeavour, where possible, to use existing modules from our large array of previous designs. This, combined with any one-off engineering that is required, allows us to create instruments tailored to our clients’ specific requirements.


We often work with research organisations, to develop application specific research tools. We also work with companies to develop new products optimised for their chosen market.


Kore has developed a unique instrument philosophy that reduces overheads and bought-out costs, allowing us to offer high quality cutting-edge research equipment at affordable prices. We are conscious that our main customers in universities and research institutes typically have limited funds available.


The company is a centre of excellence in time-of-flight mass spectrometer technology and has a very strong R&D capability in terms of its personnel, all of whom have been heavily involved in a variety of analytical instrumentation development programmes.


Experimental ultra-high vacuum chambers with pumping are available for test purposes. There is a workshop for the fabrication of metal parts, clean air facilities for assembly and basic equipment for electronic assembly and test, as well as extensive design and mathematical modelling software facilities.

We use in-house technology

We have developed a lot of in-house technology over the years. We design, build and assemble all our own time-of-flight mass spectrometer systems, sub-assemblies and control and signal detection electronics, minimising the amount of bought-out goods. This keeps costs low for our clients.

We keep marketing costs low

Rather than spend thousands of pounds on expensive marketing, we focus our resources on developing the best technologies. We only use international agents when they add value to our clients, using Factory Trained and Certified support personnel to provide the highest quality sales and service support close to the customer.

We provide affordable servicing

We always provide detailed documentation and training in instrument diagnostics to all our customers to enable them to maintain their instruments using technical staff within their institutes. We can also provide affordable service contracts, which involve scheduled visits for servicing, all our instruments carry a one-year warranty, with the option to extend up to 5 years. If an issue develops with the instrument after the warranty period has expired, we work with customers to perform simple diagnostics that allow us to identify the source of the issue.


Kore has traded successfully for over 28 years. We currently have no borrowings and have an annual turnover of over $2M. Kore Technology Ltd – registered in England, Registered No. 2643175
