SPT Labtech, a global leader in the design and development of automated instrumentation and consumables for life science applications, has acquired BioMicroLab, a robotics automation provider for life science laboratories.
The deal follows SPT Labtech’s acquisition in January of Apricot Designs, a liquid handling technology provider. Apricot Designs, headquartered in Covina, California, established a 30-year track record supporting increasingly complex and evolving laboratory research requirements with the design and manufacture of multichannel micro-volume pipettors and sample preparation devices.
Headquartered in Northern California, BioMicroLab designs and manufactures laboratory automation equipment for biotechnology and scientific research. BioMicroLab’s extensive range of sample handling and tracking solutions complements SPT Labtech’s capabilities in modular, automated sample storage systems and expands its product breadth in the sample management market.
Patrick Bennett, Group CEO at SPT Labtech, said: “Over the last 25 years, BioMicroLab has established a well-deserved reputation as a dependable partner for intuitive and reliable benchtop automation. This important investment delivers significant benefits to customers by creating a powerful end-to-end solution to streamline sample management workflows. We are delighted to welcome BioMicroLab to SPT Labtech.”
David Miller, President of BioMicroLab, commented: “SPT Labtech has an impressive track record of harnessing innovation to overcome tough research challenges and deep expertise across a range of life sciences applications. We are confident that customers will benefit from our combined capabilities and look forward to continuing to enable their research success as part of the SPT Labtech team.”
SPT Labtech says these acquisitions underscore its commitment to creating powerful automated solutions to accelerate life science research.
