AB Sciex Acquires Labindia’s Mass Spectrometry Division to Broaden Presence in India

Jan 16 2012 Read 1516 Times

AB Sciex has announced that it has acquired the mass spectrometry business of Labindia Instruments Pvt Ltd, a leading life science solutions service provider in India. This acquisition represents AB Sciex’s increasing investment in India, combining its global resources, world-class scientific expertise and product development leadership with wellestablished, local expertise and on-site support to advance science and respond to the growing needs of India’s scientific community.

Labindia’s mass spectrometry business has been serving Indian users of AB Sciex instrumentation for the past 15 years. The transition of this business, including customer relationships, personnel and application support facilities, to AB Sciex is a direct result of the successful track record that AB Sciex and Labindia have had as partners in India.

AB Sciex has been actively involved in applying the power of mass spectrometry to assist in efforts to protect the health and safety of India’s vast population. The Company announced last year that through its distribution relationship
with Labindia, it supplied a food safety testing solution to six major laboratories under the pesticides monitoring network project by India’s  government. This was part of a project with the Ministry of Agriculture to help reinforce new
food safety standards through better monitoring for contamination.

“Expansion of AB Sciex ‘s commercial operations in India will strengthen our position and help us build on the success of Labindia’s mass spectrometry business as well as execute on our growth strategy,” said Umesh Pawa (pictured right), Managing Director, AB Sciex India. “By integrating  Indian sales, service and support functions into AB
Sciex‘s global resources and operational excellence, we will simplify the process for customers to do business with AB Sciex and drive the highest standard of support, further enhancing customer satisfaction levels. We will now be able to engage in a new level of dialogue with Indian scientists, who are among the leaders pushing the limits to improve life in this region.”

AB Sciex and Labindia are working closely to ensure a smooth transition of Labindia’s former mass spectrometry-focused personnel, who will provide uninterrupted service and support during this changeover and continue to be the
day-to-day contacts for Indian mass spectrometry customers. As part of AB Sciex, the team will continue to work from their current locations in India.
