Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. has announced that it has acquired Massachusetts-based Cohesive Technologies Inc., a manufacturer of advanced sample extraction and liquid chromatography products. Cohesive has annual revenues of approximately $15 million.
The Cohesive product line can enhance the company's Thermo Scientific-branded portfolio by adding in-line sample preparation capabilities that can couple with mass spectrometry technology to create end-to-end workflow solutions for drug and other organic molecule analyses.
These capabilities can improve sample throughput and increase detection limits during LC/MS/MS analysis for customers in the pharmaceutical, clinical, environmental and food science industries.
"Cohesive's sample preparation technologies will strengthen our ability to offer customers the advanced tools they need to accelerate research and discovery and to provide them with higher-quality analytical information," said Marijn E. Dekkers, president and chief executive officer of Thermo Fisher Scientific.
"We look forward to integrating Cohesive into Thermo Fisher Scientific, and to making their sample preparation capabilities available to customers worldwide through our global sales channels."
