About

Metrolab is the world leader in the market for precision magnetometers, used to measure intense magnetic fields with the utmost precision.

Over the past 35 years, we have earned the trust of MRI manufacturers and physics laboratories worldwide.

Our offering integrates expertise in precision magnetic field measurement, an understanding of magnetic system applications, a passion for industrial quality, and the responsiveness of a small company.

Research and Development (R&D) is ingrained in Metrolab’s DNA. We invest approximately 18% of our sales and 41% of man-hours in R&D, twice as much as other mature high-tech industries.

We control the entire value chain, from product design to manufacturing, global distribution, and after-sales service.

Above all, we think ‘beyond the product’: our experts are at your disposal to help you find the high-precision, easy-to-use, and productive magnetic measurement solution that best suits your application and requirements. With Metrolab, you benefit from an excellent understanding of your environment, your needs as a scientist, and your industrial constraints.

For very specific needs, we are ready to partner with you to once again create an innovative new product. We develop and maintain our unique expertise through an international network of scientific consultants and university collaborations, such as the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL), the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI), the French Atomic Energy Commission (CEA), and the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN).

As the world market leader in precision magnetometers, we benefit from the expertise of our team of specialists. Get to know them.
