HORIBA Instruments Inc. Purchases Beta Scientific Assets

August 26, 2008
HORIBA Instruments Inc.’s purchase of all assets of Beta Scientific includes all rights to the SA-9600 line of surface area analyzers previously developed and sold by Beta Scientific.  

Based on the flowing gas technique, the technology is complimentary to other products marketed by the HORIBA Scientific Segment. The SA-9600 line of analyzers features a fast and accurate method of measuring low surface area samples.

Surface area measurements are essential when powder is part of the product or process, such as the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry and is a great compliment to HORIBA Instrument’s other offerings to the general market. The SA-9600 line can meet all requirements of the pharmaceutical industry and has full compatibility with 21 CFR Part 11.

Surface area further improves a HORIBA line-up already featuring particle size, particle shape, and zeta potential.
