The move aims to expand Calibre’s European presence and chromatography offering

Calibre Scientific has acquired AIT France, a manufacturer and distributor of innovative consumables for analytical chemistry and chromatography. The acquisition is aimed to bolster Calibre’s position in the chromatography market and broaden its life sciences presence in Europe.

AIT supplies public and private researchers and pharmaceutical laboratories. The company manufactures proprietary components and distributes a range of consumables for chromatography and analytical chemistry, including distribution of products from other brands.

“Integrating AIT into Calibre Scientific will further strengthen our activities and service capability in France and also enable us to plug AIT’s proprietary product portfolio into Calibre Scientific’s vast direct and distribution channels worldwide,” said Pascal Aznar, owner of AIT.
