LabLogic Systems has acquired IN/US Systems Inc., the manufacturer of radio chromatography flow-through detectors and counters for bio-medical research.

LabLogic Systems has acquired IN/US Systems Inc., the manufacturer of radio chromatography flow-through detectors and counters for biomedical research.

The acquisition consolidates a long-standing association under which LabLogic has provided its Laura data collection and analysis software for IN/US instruments and represented the company in the UK and Europe.

IN/US is continuing to trade under its own name and retains its established sales network, both in the USA and internationally.

The common ownership will make life easier for customers of both companies by providing a single source of expertise for software and hardware alike.

LabLogic chairman John Clapham said: "On these occasions it is customary to talk about the 'potential synergy' between the two companies, but in the case of LabLogic and IN/US the synergy has been actual since Ed Rapkin started IN/US in 1990; in fact our personal association goes back another 20 years before that."

Ed Rapkin added: "Bringing LabLogic and IN/US together will provide a single source for everything from installation and training right through to upgrades and support, which in turns means greater efficiencies, faster product development and greater product satisfaction."

IN/US's original product is Beta-RAM, the pharmaceutical industry's most widely used RHPLC flow-through detector, subsequently complemented by Gamma-RAM, GC-RAM , the coincidence positron counter Posi-RAM, and TRI-SORBER, the first production manifold for generating and handling uranium-sequestered tritium.
