Products are designed and manufactured to various British Standards or ISO specifications, as well as ASTM and IP standards. UKAS and traceable works certificates of calibration can be supplied.

Patient, dedicated craftsmanship is still employed at Russell Scientific Instruments, assisted by modern methods and equipment where appropriate. Many of the domestic instruments are built to popular and long-established patterns and designs. All the mahogany used comes from sustainable sources.
