Krackeler Scientific

In 1951, after a successful career with DuPont, Joseph J. Krackeler started a scientific distribution company in Albany, New York, primarily supplying laboratory chemicals and glassware. 60 plus years and two subsequent generations later, Krackeler Scientific is a leading, full-line distributor of general laboratory supplies, large and small equipment, chemicals, bioreagents, chromatography consumables, tissue culture products, sophisticated biological kits, media and supplements, lab safety products, and just about anything else you’d want to find in a scientific space. Our comprehensive product line represents all the leading scientific manufacturers and can be ordered through our print catalog or website. We now serve academic, governmental, and private sector customers in the biotechnology, nanotechnology, life science, pharmaceutical, biomedical, environmental, and industrial sectors. Our home remains in Albany, but our reach is global.
