PerkinElmer Picks Up Analytica of Branford

Purchase enhances mass spec and ion source platforms.

PerkinElmer acquired Analytica of Branford, gaining insight and intellectual property in mass spectrometry (MS) and ion source technology. Analytica’s technology complements PerkinElmer’s human and environmental health portfolio.

PerkinElmer will integrate Analytica’s current manufacturing operations into its Shelton, CT, facility. It will utilize the company’s existing Branford facility for R&D projects.

“The acquisition of Analytica will allow us to offer our customers access to critical technologies such as time-of-flight and quadrupole mass spectrometers and new ion sources that provide more complete information as well as better throughput,” comments Richard Begley, Ph.D., president, Analytical Sciences, PerkinElmer.
