A leading provider of calibration verification materials for clinical laboratories in the US
LGC, an international life sciences and measurement company, has acquired Maine Standards Company, for an undisclosed sum.
Maine Standards Company is a leading provider of calibration verification materials for clinical laboratories in the US. LGC says the acquisition bolsters the firm's growing portfolio of reference materials and proficiency testing (PT) schemes for the clinical market.
Euan O’Sullivan, Managing Director of LGC’s Standards Division, said: 'Our two organisations represent a highly complementary commercial and cultural fit, with a common commitment to developing products of the very highest quality for the benefit of our customers.
'We look forward to working with Maine Standards Company to complete its leading portfolio of calibration verification materials for the US market, while using our global network to expand sales of these products internationally.
'We also see exciting opportunities to combine our distinctive analytical capabilities to develop new products for our mutual customers.'
Maine Standards Company will continue to operate from its recently opened, purpose-built facility near Portland, Maine, under LGC’s ownership.
