Advion, Inc.’s parent company, Bohui Innovation Biotechnology, will acquire the Interchim group and subsequently combine with Advion. Global commercial combination and impact should be notable.
I am writing you today with some exciting news to share. I am pleased to announce Beijing Bohui Innovation Biotechnology Co., Ltd., has filed its intention to acquire Adchim SAS, the parent company of the Interchim group companies. This transaction will subsequently result in the combination of Interchim® SA, a global provider of chromatography and purification instrumentation and consumables for life sciences, research and industry and Bohui’s subsidiary Advion Inc., a leader in high performance, small footprint mass spectrometry. Building upon seven years of a successful OEM partnership, the companies’ future elevated multi-national combination for sales of instruments, consumables and customer service should quickly enable all of our customers to benefit from the best values of both companies. The combined suite of solutions will be displayed at global conferences beginning in early March, though each company will sustain direct customer transaction relationships until the subsequent combination.
The broad range of Interchim’s puriFlash® flash chromatography and preparative LC systems, SPE, evaporation, chromatography columns and consumables will be enhanced by Advion’s strong academic, pharma, biopharmaceutical and clinical position in mass spectrometry and chromatography products creating a large combined product portfolio.
Partners since 2012, Interchim and Advion led the market by being the first to develop integrated Flash-MS and seamlessly coupling Advion’s high performance expression® Compact Mass Spectrometer with Interchim’s puriFlash® chromatography systems. In the future, the combined companies will strengthen the integration and breadth of workflow solutions by adding novel sample introduction, assay techniques and others.
Customers can continue to expect full support of all Interchim’s products including the puriFlash® systems, sample preparation and evaporation systems, all related consumables and accessories with additional benefits.
The collaboration will bring an increased support footprint, additional consumable direct purchasing options for convenience of ordering, and opportunities to update their existing Interchim world-class flash chromatography family of products with Advion’s expression® Compact Mass Spectrometer.
Of course, to still ensure you the best-in-class support, the combined company will actively continue to distribute brands you are currently using and sourcing from Interchim.
Please do not hesitate to contact your usual representative with any questions regarding our eventual combination, or the Advion mass spectrometry and chromatography products suite. It is our pleasure to serve you with the latest technology in the life sciences, research and industry, and this combination gives us the opportunity to provide you with even greater instrumentation offerings.
