About Us

Our Approach

CID AgTech is a full-service supplier of instruments for high throughput, non-destructive measurements and automated handling/assay of plants and seeds to the academic, R&D, breeding, and farming sectors. We believe that business relationships, whether with a customer or a vendor, should be built upon earned trust, cordial interactions, and a goal of mutual success.  We work consultatively with you, our client, to define the best available solution for your technical challenge.

Our Story

CID AgTech was formed because its founders recognized the value of being the first distribution channel in North America for plant phenotyping and robotics tools. We are the sole North America representative for a carefully selected group of innovative manufacturers.  We offer expertise, experience, and credentials in the plant sciences, computer science and engineering. In addition, we offer installation, service, and support locally, saving the time and expense of dispatching technicians from overseas.

Purchasing is facilitated by dealing with a U.S. based company, denominated in USD. You can do business with us confidently, as we are backed by a technology company, CID Bio-Science that has been designing, engineering, and manufacturing handheld instruments for measurements of plants and fruits in Camas, Washington USA for more than 25 years. Come tour our award-winning facility if you are in the area!
