Calibre Scientific has acquired SciQuip, a UK-based provider of scientific equipment, laboratory supplies and services company, for an undisclosed sum.

The deal, which represents Calibre Scientific’s 12th acquisition in the British Isles, is expected to further expand the company’s product and service offering in the region.

SciQuip offers a diverse portfolio of products, including centrifugation, incubation, ovens, freezers, freeze drying, liquid handling, and mission-critical laboratory equipment, to research, university, hospital and biopharma sectors.

In addition, the company provides different types of consumables, together with complete technical sales support, and repair and maintenance services, to address its customers’ needs.

With the acquisition, it is enabled to strengthen its operations in the UK, and further diversify its existing product and service portfolio in the laboratory supplies market, said Calibre.

Calibre Scientific chief executive officer Ben Travis said: “SciQuip is an exciting addition to the Calibre Scientific family as it brings over two decades of equipment experience and a number of complementary products and services to further bolster our Lab Products & Services division.

“Together, with our growing life science and diagnostic solutions, equipment offering and global distribution platform, we are excited to continue to expand our range of capabilities serving laboratories worldwide.”

Calibre Scientific is a provider of life science reagents, tools, instruments, and other consumables to the lab research, diagnostics, industrial, and biopharmaceutical communities.

The company owns a portfolio of life science and diagnostic companies that work to address customers’ challenges in their respective markets.

Its global reach extends to more than 175 countries, and it continues to expand its product offering and global footprint to laboratories across a wide array of verticals and geographies.

SciQuip managing director Matt Brooksbank said: “SciQuip has always strived to provide the highest quality equipment, supplies and service to its customers in the most sustainable way.

“We’re excited to join Calibre Scientific as there are clear synergies and shared values between the companies which can take SciQuip to new heights.”
