Sybron International Completes Acquisition of Robbins Scientific.
This acquisition is part of Sybron's expansion into the high-throughput screening and drug discovery market. Sybron already has a presence in this marketplace with products from its Molecular BioProducts and Nunc subsidiaries, which primarily offer aftermarket items such as mircroplates and pipet tips. The acquisitions of Robbins Scientific and Matrix allow Sybron to offer a full range of liquid handling aftermarket items. These acquisitions also signal Sybron's entrance into the initial systems market. At the present time, Martrix offers the PlateMate automated pipetting systems and Speedmation single- and multi-channel manual and electronic pipettors. Robbins Scientific offers the Hydra automated dispensing machines and hybridization incubators.
