History

Diamond AnalyticsDiamond Analytics’ HPLC and TLC technologies are the results of extensive Research and Development (R&D) conducted by both Brigham Young University and Diamond Analytics teams. The research staff consists of professionals with advanced degrees in engineering and chemistry.

Diamond Analytics’ parent-company, US Synthetic, was originally founded as a small diamond grit manufacturing company by Louis Pope in 1978. Over the company’s 30-year history, Louis and his team of synthetic diamond experts have expanded and evolved the business into a leader in the development of polycrystalline diamond (PDC) inserts for oil and gas exploration. Over the years, US Synthetic has worked with some of the largest names in oil and gas exploration. In the early days, US Synthetic focused on developing innovative proprietary cubic press technology for high-pressure, high-temperature diamond synthesis and manufacturing polycrystalline diamond (PDC) cutters for the oil and gas exploration industry.

Throughout the 1990s, an unwavering commitment to innovation, quality, and personalized customer service fueled US Synthetic's rapid growth and success. In 1993, US Synthetic became the first PDC manufacturer to become ISO 9000 certified. The company introduced many of the decade’s most significant innovations and advances in the use of diamond for oil and gas drilling. And by 1997, US Synthetic had become the industry’s leading supplier of diamond products.

Since 2006, the Diamond Analytics division has been actively expanding on US Synthetic’s leadership position by developing innovative new diamond technology for chromatography. For more information on Diamond Analytics, contact us today or read more about our technology advantage.
