PerkinElmer Acquires Labtronics Inc.
PerkinElmer, Inc. announced that it has acquired Labtronics Inc., an Ontario, Canada-based leader in providing procedures-based Electronic Laboratory Notebook (ELN) solutions for laboratories performing routine analysis in multiple industries.
The Labtronics acquisition follows the recent purchase of informatics companies CambridgeSoft and ArtusLabs by PerkinElmer, both announced in March. The addition of Labtronics’ solutions extends PerkinElmer’s ELN and data integration software offerings into laboratories following strict routine procedures, such as regulated and non-regulated QA/QC, late stage product or method development laboratories, and environmental and food testing labs. Labtronics tools can be applied to any procedure-based problem, including laboratory analysis, equipment calibration and validation, cleaning validation and others.
Founded in 1986, Labtronics’ products include its Nexxis ELN (Electronic Laboratory Notebook) for quality control (QC) and R&D; and its Nexxis iLAB laboratory automation platform. The company is a leader in lab connectivity, directly connecting data from instrumentation to a lab’s ELN, SDMS, LIMS, ERP and SAP technologies for complete interface solutions. Labtronics’ LimsLink fully configurable lab integration software platform speeds deployment of new informatics systems and enhances the capabilities of existing system investments.
“We welcome the addition of Labtronics to PerkinElmer’s growing portfolio of informatics and software solutions for laboratory environments, as we enhance the Company’s strategic focus on enterprise-wide knowledge sharing and access,” said Dusty Tenney, president, Analytical Sciences and Laboratory Services, PerkinElmer, Inc. “This acquisition successfully positions PerkinElmer as the only technology provider able to deploy an optimized ELN solution across a global customer’s entire value chain, from research to manufacturing.”
He added, “The acquisition presents strong synergies with our OneSource Laboratory Services portfolio providing enterprise-level solutions that foster long term partnerships with customers.”
