Trajan expands capability with LEAP Technologies acquisition
Trajan Scientific and Medical has acquired LEAP Technologies. Formed in 1989 to serve the automation needs of analytical laboratories, LEAP delivers solutions in the fields of research and development, life science, pharmaceutical, polymer, food processing, forensic, and academia.
Bringing LEAP into the Trajan Group will complement the widening capability of Trajan, servicing the company’s vision to make a positive impact on human wellbeing. It will improve science and laboratory workflows to ultimately bring testing of the sample closer to the source, while supporting improved efficiencies in the lab, the company says.
Trajan chief executive officer Stephen Tomisich says: “Trajan has a technology-rich development pipeline of disruptive sampling and sample preparation products speeding towards commercialisation and LEAP provides the automation capability to allow adoption into laboratory workflows. We think it’s a partnership with huge potential.”
Werner Martin, president of LEAP Technologies predicts: “The opportunity for LEAP to join Trajan will be a tremendous step forward to best apply new automation configurations for the fast evolving analytical chemistry laboratories worldwide. The synergies are multiple and can speed up the positive impact on human well-being by improving developments for laboratory automation and workflow.”
Mr Sal Iacono, LEAP Technologies CEO, echoes this sentiment: “In particular, the expanded opportunities to generate more disruptive, efficient and streamlined solutions such as LEAP’s innovative HDx platform, for the life science, environmental and diagnostic markets is immensely exciting.
“We are eagerly looking forward to continuing and further expanding our relationships with superb technology partners such as CTC Analytics, Axel- Semrau and Gyger to name a few, in integrating their outstanding offerings with Trajan’s many disruptive technologies to provide superior innovation to the marketplace.”
