Metrohm acquires majority share of DropSens

Metrohm Australia Pty Ltd

Friday, 29 September, 2017


Switzerland-based Metrohm AG, a leading manufacturer of instruments for chemical analysis, has announced the acquisition of a majority share in DropSens S.L. DropSens designs, develops and manufactures electrochemiluminescence-based instruments and equipment dealing with hyphenated UV/VIS, NIR and Raman spectroelectrochemical techniques. The acquisition comes after a longer period of successful cooperation between the two companies in the development of screen-printed electrodes and portable electrochemical instrumentation.

With the acquisition of DropSens, Metrohm benefits from the know-how and resources of a technology leader in miniaturised electrochemistry, consolidating the company’s strategic move to extend the Metrohm solution portfolio to next-generation electrochemical sensors and portable potentiostats/galvanostats.

While the company name DropSens will change with the acquisition to Metrohm DropSens, the Spain-based company will continue to design, develop and produce its electrochemical technology in Asturias (Spain) and will become part of the Metrohm Electrochemistry business.
