Millville, NJ WHEATON announced that it has acquired MicroLiter Analytical Supplies, Inc., of Suwanee, GA, a leading supplier of pre-cleaned chromatography sample vials and accessories for use with autosamplers.
Founded in 1996 to provide high-quality consumable products to the autosampler market, MicroLiter is recognized for its focus on supplying pre-cleaned, sample containment products processed in Class 10,000 cleanroom facilities. Its product line includes 12x32mm glass autosampler vials, inserts, septa and closures, and the MicroLiter Plate Sampling System, a patented design that brings a 96-well, multi-array sample handling format for chromatography autosamplers. WHEATON is supporting continued product development, service improvements with its supply chain expertise and additional sales support from its established team of specialists.
"MicroLiter, a leading brand in high precision chromatography, is a strategic step in strengthening WHEATON's leadership in chemical analysis products, and to that end, we welcome MicroLiter's dedicated customers and advocates," said Wayne Brinster, President of WHEATON. "We're looking forward to a synergistic relationship in which we can better support scientists and researchers, through efficiencies and product line expansion," he added.
