Our History

JAY SCIENTIFIC COMPANY was established in 1967 with the objective of sourcing and distribution of quality surgical and scientific appliances from leading manufacturers. JSC has been a pioneer in import and distribution of scientific and surgical products.
With over five decades of experience in the business, and some of the most prestigious companies in its client list, Jay Scientific Company, is one of the most trusted names in the industry. Today, Jay Scientific Co is the sole importer of Whatman products in India.

We have been distribution partners with Whatman since 1962. Whatman was acquired by GE Healthcare in 2008, and together with GE we changed the business model and took Whatman sales in India to new heights. In 2016 we added Life Sciences to our product portfolio- and set up distribution in India of GE Healthcare Life Sciences Consumables and Hyclone media.

In 2019, Bio-pharma business of GE Life Sciences which includes Whatman, was acquired by the Danaher Corporation and rebranded as Cytiva in 2020. We are proud to be associated with Cytiva- a global life sciences leader with over 7000 associates across 40 sites.

RAMNIKLAL & CO. is the flagship company of the group which was established in 1964. The company is the sole distributor of ZEAL Thermometers in India. Zeal is a brand that is over 100 years old with a presence in over 25 countries. So, when it comes to Thermometers, Hydrometers, Hygrometers, Flowmeters or Pressure Gauges, you can be assured they all carry the seal of approval from a fine pedigree.
