Miltenyi Biotec GmbH acquires Medic Tools AG
Miltenyi Biotec has acquired Medic Tools AG from Zug, Switzerland. With this acquisition, Miltenyi Biotec strengthens the portfolio in the area of sample preparation. "The innovative and high-quality devices and techniques fit perfectly into the product range of instruments, reagents, and services offered by Miltenyi Biotec", Miltenyi Biotec CEO Dr. Boris Stoffel and Franz G. Bucher, Vice President and CEO of Medic Tools AG, stated in a conjoint announcement.
As a first result of the previous cooperation, the gentleMACS Dissociator was introduced into the market several months ago. The instrument facilitates the generation of single-cell suspensions from tissues and thus, helps generate the ideal starting material for the separation and isolation of specific cell types using MACS Technology. This procedure to separate cells magnetically was developed by Miltenyi Biotec and is a research laboratory standard worldwide.
The additional expertise of Medic Tools enables Miltenyi Biotec to further engage in development projects in the area of sample preparation. "We offer our biomedical research customers a complete solution", adds Dr. Stoffel, "from sample preparation to cell separation, cell analysis, cytological and molecular analysis."
