SciAps acquires Raman analyzer maker DeltaNu

Portable analytical instrumentation company SciAps (Woburn, MA) has acquired Raman analyzer developer and manufacturer DeltaNu (Laramie, WY), formerly a business unit of Intevac Photonics (Santa Clara, CA). The company's Raman analyzers apply to pharmaceutical, law enforcement, and general spectroscopy applications.

The acquisition will leverage SciAps’ global distribution, marketing, and product development expertise with DeltaNu’s portable Raman technical expertise and surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) technology. Together, the joined companies will debut the InspectoR family of portable Raman analyzers, which feature a choice of a 785 or 1030 nm laser.

SciAps will maintain and grow the facility in Laramie as a manufacturing, service, and engineering entity, while product development, sales, and marketing efforts will be led from the Woburn facility.
