Metrohm is pleased to announce the acquisition of Innovative Photonic Solutions (IPS). With this important acquisition, Metrohm continues to invest in strategic growth and enhances the company’s capabilities to further develop a portfolio of industry-leading Raman solutions.
IPS is the largest producer of Raman spectroscopy diode-based light components in the world. Founded in 2003, the company’s products range from simple components such as packaged diodes and OEM modules that include electronics to complete custom designed systems.
Metrohm manufactures handheld Raman analyzers for material identification and verification, providing the perfect basis for a successful partnership between the two companies.
A key element of this acquisition is the commitment of both IPS and Metrohm to continue to provide superior customer support and the very highest overall product quality. IPS’s dedication to its customers’ needs and focus to innovate new products as the market demands mirrors Metrohm’s, making this acquisition a partnership that will first and foremost benefit customers.

Human Malaria Parasites Grown for the First Time in Dormant FormNews
One of the biggest obstacles to eradicating malaria is a dormant form of the parasite which is resistant to most antimalarial drugs and can reawaken years later, causing disease relapse. Researchers have shown they can grow the dormant parasite in engineered human liver tissue for several weeks, allowing them to closely study how the parasite becomes dormant, what vulnerabilities it may have, and how it springs back to life.READ MORE
Innovative Nanomaterial Made From Natural SubstancesNews
Protein nanofibres often have outstanding properties such as a high stability, biodegradability, or antibacterial effect. Artificially creating these fibres is not easy, much less assigning them specific functions. That and how fibres with new properties can be successfully created is now being reported by materials scientists in a new study.READ MORE
