Waters Acquires Calorimetry Sciences Corp. for Undisclosed Amount

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - Waters said yesterday that it has acquired the thermal analysis company Calorimetry Sciences Corporation for an undisclosed amount.
 
Waters said it plans to add privately held CSC, which is based in Linden, Utah, to its Thermal Analysis Instruments Division.
 
CSC has annual sales of around $4 million, Waters said. The company expects the acquisition to be neutral to 2007 earnings.
 
CSC sells an isothermal titration calorimeter called Nano-ITC that is used to measure protein-ligand binding, and the Nano-DSC, a scanning calorimeter used in measuring stability of proteins and other macromolecules in dilute solutions, Waters said.
 
Waters said that CSC’s technologies will complement its TAM microcalorimeter product line, and will enhance its position in what it sees as a growing market for microcalorimetry.
