ALA Scientific Instruments, Inc Company Profile

ALA Scientific Instruments, Inc. began as Adams and List assoc. Ltd. in 1986. It was founded by Jonathan J. Adams, a Polish-Jewish immigrant who survived the Auschvitz Concentration Camp and came to the U.S. following World War II. John Adams had started the Medical Systems Corporation in 1960 to distribute Digitimer LTD products in the U.S. The company quickly became the leading supplier of instrumentation for electrophysiology research in the U.S., and in fact Medical Systems Corp. was the first exhibitor at the first annual Society for Neuroscience meeting in 1970; a meeting which now boasts over 400 exhibitors and 25,000 attendees. John Adams retired from Medical Systems in 1984. Retirement could not satisfy his need to be around breakthrough technology so he formed a new company with a former business associate, Jurgen List, a German businessman and president of List Medical and List Electronic GmbH.The company was called Adams and List Assoc. Ltd. and was based in Great Neck, NY. Its primary purpose was to import and market the products of List Medical, and List Electronic in the U.S. Mr. List had secured lucrative contracts to distribute unique developments of the Max Plank Institute for the then young field of Patch Clamping. In the late eighties, buoyed by a bustling economy and muted competition, List Electronic and Adams and List Assoc. boomed.
