Posted on 30 Apr 2013
Analytik Jena, AG (Jena, Germany) recently acquired all of the outstanding shares of UVP, LLC (Upland, CA, USA), including its subsidiary, Ultra-Violet Products, Ltd. (Cambridge UK).

UVP is a leading manufacturer of bioimaging systems for applications in proteomics, genomics, animal and plant sciences. The company also develops ultraviolet (UV) products, light sources, and laboratory equipment such as hybridization ovens, transilluminators, crosslinkers, and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) hoods.

The acquisition of UVP allows Analytik Jena to strengthen its presence in the US market and expand its product range. “With the acquisition of UVP, we are significantly expanding our business activities in the Life Science unit and are laying an excellent basis for developing our successful business model in the US and neighboring regions. Here, we are combining efficient sales structures, a well-coordinated product portfolio, and broad technological expertise in the respective core segments. Further extensive synergies are to arise, especially in sales in Europe and Asia. With UVP, Analytik Jena also gains a production plant in the US dollar currency area,” remarked Klaus Berka, CEO of Analytik Jena, AG.

Analytik Jena is a provider of analytic technology, life-science systems for bioanalytic applications, and high-end optical consumer products. With UVP’s incorporation into Analytik Jena’s life-science business unit, many synergies are expected.

According to Leighton Smith, UVP’s president and CEO, “UVP has an opportunity to contribute significantly to the growth and profitability of Analytik Jena’s Life Science business unit. Our combined manufacturing expertise, portfolio of products and distribution channels open up new market opportunities, and begins an exciting new chapter in UVP’s history of providing innovative products and solutions to our customers.”
