IN/US Systems re-branded as LabLogic
25 August 2010
LabLogic is pleased to announce that IN/US Systems, Inc., manufacturer of the Beta-RAM radio detector, has changed its name to LabLogic Systems, Inc., bringing it into line with radio-chromatography software specialist LabLogic Systems Ltd, by which it was acquired three years ago.
The two companies will also be sharing a single, newly updated website (www.lablogic.com), but both are trading as before, offering all IN/US and LabLogic products in their respective markets - LabLogic Systems, Inc., in North America, and LabLogic Systems Limited in the rest of the world.
"The uniting of company names is the outward sign of the gradual merger of the two companies that we have been working on for the last three years," said Richard Brown, managing director of the UK-based company and president of LabLogic Inc.
"Customers will notice no difference in the service they receive; in fact it should be better, because we have integrated our US and European teams in a way that makes the most of our individual strengths."
Also continuing is the commitment of both companies to applications not only in radio-HPLC, but radio-TLC, WBA, radio-GC and (most recently) PET, all backed by excellent user support. Customers include most drug research organisations, contract laboratories and universities spanning 46 countries.
LabLogic was founded in the UK in 1980 by John Clapham as a supplier of radio TLC and HPLC instruments and associated software to research organisations. IN/US Systems was founded in the USA a decade later by Dr Ed Rapkin to produce, sell and support the company's Beta-RAM radio detector. The two men had worked together in the 1970s and both companies were focused on the needs of drug research, so a mutual co-operation was natural from the beginning.
When Ed Rapkin retired in 2007 there was an opportunity for the two co-operating companies to come together fully so IN/US was acquired by LabLogic, which invested in new premises and additional staff and products.
