Thermo Fisher Scientific Acquires NanoDrop Technologies

  • Thermo Fisher Scientific reported the take-over of NanoDrop Technologies. The acquisition will expand the company’s portfolio of microvolume ultraviolet-visible (UV-Vis) instruments for applications involving small sample volumes.

    “Growing demand from our laboratory customers to accelerate sample-preparation time is now compounded by the need to work with smaller sample sizes,” points out Marijn E. Dekkers, president and CEO of Thermo Fisher Scientific. “NanoDrop's patented technologies uniquely allow customers to quickly and easily analyze difficult microvolume samples without the need for dilution. This preserves precious samples to greatly increase laboratory productivity.”

    NanoDrop is based in Wilmington, DE. The firm has annual revenues of approximately $35 million, according to Thermo Fisher Scientific. The transaction will add three tools - the NanoDrop® ND-1000 and ND-8000 UV-Vis spectrophotometers and the NanoDrop ND-3300 fluorescence spectrophotometer.

    The NanoDrop product line will be integrated into Thermo Fisher's scientific instruments business, part of its Analytical Technologies Segment. They will be marketed under the company's Thermo Scientific technology brand.
