Brian Ruf
President & Owner


At E&K Scientific our mission is to excel in the distribution of life science research supplies by offering an unparalleled customer experience centered on technical expertise, innovation, and personalized service.

E&K offers almost 50 years of experience as a premier provider of laboratory supplies and instrumentation to the Academic, Biotech, and Pharmaceutical Research Laboratories. The company was founded in 1975 by Egon and Kay Ruf and their son, Brian Ruf, took over as President and CEO in 2000.

We are extremely flexible and responsive to our customers individual needs. We are very accessible and we work hard to never let our customers down. Not even when bigger distributors do. We are proud to step in and provide you with the tools you need to keep your invaluable research on track!

We cross reference most part numbers to the appropriate E&K item, and we are dedicated to offering the lowest prices possible.

Our unique partnership with a growing number of suppliers also guarantees that our products are manufactured using state-of-the-art equipment and tested to ensure that they meet or exceed functional, dimensional, and environmental requirements.

We constantly search for innovative solutions for the needs of the rapidly changing scientific community. We work closely with our customers and we regularly survey the market to maintain an evolving product line that answers all new application needs.

If there is a product that you would like to see that you are not able to find, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are your number one fan, and we would be more than happy to explore new opportunities with you!

Our sales and customer service departments welcome all quotation requests. We work with new labs, startup companies, universities, and no business is too small for us!
