We began as a vision of what science supplier could be, and 90 years later, we still embody that future-focused visionary perspective. At Carolina, we are constantly striving to improve and innovate to be the best we can be, always aiming for excellence in everything that we do. Since the time we were founded by Dr. Thomas E. Powell Jr., a young geology and biology professor at Elon College, we have prioritized people, and because of the dynamic people behind our company, we have been able to enjoy a successful tenure as a leading science supplier in the 90 years since we were established. With over 37 different departments, each employee plays a key role in our success. If you happened to tour our facilities, you would likely be fascinated by all the amazing things you’d see happening here. Visit Carolina Biological Supply
