About Us

Why Work with FSG?

We simplify chromatography instrumentation support because we know the pressures of delivering reliable results on time. Due to the cost of chromatography equipment, you may only have one instrument to perform each test. We help you take great care of all of them with our services for repair, maintenance, qualification, and more.

Our clients rave about our response times. We answer emails and phone calls within four business hours. Service contract holders feel calm with the guarantee that an expert will be fixing their instrument within 48 hours of calling.

Our Story

Two field service engineers, Tom Fider and Alan Chan, kept hearing lab managers explain their stress caused by broken and out-of-date chromatography equipment. Sometimes one system included modules from several manufacturers. Fixing one system often required calls to numerous vendors. Even worse, these OEM vendors failed to prioritize some of these smaller labs.

Tom and Alam recognized the need for a company that had a multi-vendor approach and superb customer service. Tom and Alan decided to become the instrumentation partner that would make the lives of lab managers easier. With this vision, FSG was born in 1992 to provide the best instrumentation service to analytical labs in the Bay area. John Martin, a chemist, joined the team a year later as the company expanded into the Los Angeles area.

We have grown a lot since then. We now truly offer the “full spectrum” of chromatography services for labs across the US. We continue to provide a unique combination of excellent customer service and precision science. And best of all, we become an integral team member of those we support.
