Research scientists can be some of the world's toughest customers.
Often requiring products that meet standards set by US regulatory groups, they specify PPE and cleaning products like SPEX that make the grade. That's Laboratory Grade.
What Makes SPEX Different?
In laboratories all over the world, scientists are hard at work to improve our health, safety and environment.
The same products they use to keep their laboratories clean and safe are now available for your home and workplace. Lab grade formulations can raise the standard of care for yourself and others. Our PPE products are used by scientists in research and educational laboratories worldwide. Trust our range of products to provide the protection you want.
What Scientists Know
The importance of hand health.
Germs can reach our eyes, nose and mouth – the entry points that can cause disease – through a simple touch of the hand. It is something we do much more often than we realize.
SPEX Hand Soap and Hand Sanitizer can keep hands laboratory clean, virtually eliminating the risk of cross-contamination. And they are gentle enough for scientists who wash their hands up to 40 times a day.
- LAB GRADE specifications and formulations to satisfy some of the toughest customers

Encouraging the study of STEM

We applaud the world’s scientists for their work to improve the lives of people everywhere.
SPEX supports the study of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) and we make it easy for you to do the same. A portion of every SPEX purchase you make goes to one or more STEM organizations that help train young scientists today, so they can make a huge impact in the future.
