Sigma-Aldrich buys chiral chromatography firm.
With this acquisition, Sigma-Aldrich will now offer chiral columns for liquid chromatography. Sigma-Aldrich's Supelco division currently sells chiral capillary gas chromatography columns. Mr. Gant told IBO, "With the addition of Astec, Supelco will be able to address the full range of chiral chromatography applications in tire pharmaceutical industry." The market for chiral columns for pharmaceutical applications is fast growing (see IBO 9/15/06).
