PerkinElmer has acquired Labtronics, a Canadian provider of procedures-based electronic laboratory notebook (ELN) solutions for laboratories performing routine analysis in multiple industries.

“We welcome the addition of Labtronics to PerkinElmer’s growing portfolio of informatics and software solutions for laboratory environments, as we enhance the company’s strategic focus on enterprise-wide knowledge sharing and access,” said Dusty Tenney, president, Analytical Sciences and Laboratory Services, PerkinElmer. He says that this acquisition will enable the company to deploy “an optimized ELN solution across a global customer’s entire value chain, from research to manufacturing.”

Tenney added, “The acquisition presents strong synergies with our OneSource laboratory services portfolio providing enterprise-level solutions that foster long term partnerships with customers.” The addition of Labtronics’ solutions extends the company’s ELN and data integration software offerings into laboratories following strict routine procedures, such as regulated and non-regulated QA/QC, late stage product or method development laboratories, and environmental and food testing labs.

The acquisition follows the recent purchase of informatics companies CambridgeSoft and ArtusLabs, both announced in March.
