Thermo acquires handheld x-ray analyzer company.
This acquisition adds to Thermo's portable x-ray fluorescence (XRF) offerings. This latest acquisition of a portable XRF vendor follows Oxford's purchase of Metorex last year (see IBO 9/15/04), indicating just how dynamic the market has become (see IBO 8/31/04). Based in Billerica, Massachusetts, NITON was founded in 1987. It claims an installed base of more than 6,000 portable analyzers.
