Vernon Hills, Ill, January 12, 2021 —
Antylia Scientific™, a global leader in peristaltic and single-use bioprocessing solutions, and a diverse portfolio of life sciences and diagnostic products for the pharma, biopharma, healthcare, and environmental markets, recently acquired ZeptoMetrix® Corporation. ZeptoMetrix is a life sciences developer and manufacturer of quality control standards and verification panels used in molecular diagnostic testing for infectious diseases.
Founded in 1999 and headquartered in Buffalo, NY, ZeptoMetrix’s products, including its patented NATtrol™ family of products, are used for nucleic acid testing within the diagnostic testing industry. These products are used regularly by clinical testing labs to verify that molecular diagnostic instruments are performing and accurately detecting the presence of specific genetic material within a patient sample. The ZeptoMetrix product portfolio is focused on infectious disease, including gastrointestinal, women’s health, hospital acquired infections, and respiratory, including the flu, RSV and Covid, among others.
The acquisition of ZeptoMetrix expands Antylia Scientific’s quality controls and reference standards portfolio and further establishes Antylia Scientific as a leading manufacturer of specialty chemistries and reagents for life sciences research and diagnostic testing. The acquisition represents Antylia Scientific’s second acquisition in the past year and 12th since 2014.
“The addition of ZeptoMetrix is highly complementary to our existing product portfolio within the life sciences market,” said Bernd Brust, Chief Executive Officer of Antylia Scientific. “The acquisition underscores our dedication to serving our customers with unique, differentiated products that help accelerate their research & development programs and support their diagnostic workflows.”
“The addition of ZeptoMetrix to our global commercial infrastructure enhances our shared ability to continue to support our customers in mission critical applications within the life sciences,” added Jon Salkin, President of Antylia Scientific. “We look forward to continuing to support the ZeptoMetrix customer base and expanding our quality controls and reference standards portfolio via continued investment in organic product development and M&A.”
