Micronic sets up US division in Philadelphia

Will operate in conjunction with an adjacent manufacturing facility

Micronic Holding, a Netherlands-headquartered manufacturer of sample storage tubes and accessories, has launched Micronic America, a new supporting entity for the company's traceable product portfolio in the US and Canada.

Micronic America will operate in conjunction with Micronic Manufacturing USA, the firm’s US-based production facility, to produce and provide its distributor network with sample storage solutions.

Gerrit van der Gaag, chief executive at Micronic Holding, commented: ‘This expansion not only represents our investment in US operations, but is also symbolic of a larger corporate investment in manufacturing and production enhancements, including the construction of a state-of-the-art cleanroom facility and system innovations at our home office that will significantly improve productivity.’

Located in a Keystone Innovation Zone in the Philadelphia, PA region, Micronic America will support the sales and marketing of North America while working with the company’s adjacent manufacturing plant, which boasts a Class 7 cleanroom environment. Beyond ensuring quality and product consistency, Micronic uses a proprietary laser etching system to imprint barcodes directly onto sample racks and a unique 2D Data-Matrix code on the bottom of each tube for durable sample identification.

Distributors supported by Micronic America in the US and Canada include E&K Scientific, USA Scientific, Nova Biostorage Plus (formerly Micronic North America), MJS Biolynx and D-Mark Biosciences.
