About This Company
SKC is the world leader in sampling technologies. Founded in 1962 by chemist Lloyd V. Guild in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the privately held corporation specialized in producing precision laboratory glassware. As Dr. Guild observed working conditions in Pittsburgh's steel and mining industries, he developed a mission to protect workers from occupational airborne exposures. As other scientists joined Dr. Guild's mission, he expanded SKC's capabilities to produce the first commercially available NIOSH-designed sorbent tube and one of the first low flow pumps, providing accurate samples of worker gas and vapor exposure.
