Deal combines the product portfolio and application expertise of two leaders in the cryogenic research market

COLUMBUS, Ohio (PRWEB) August 10, 2020

Lake Shore Cryotronics, a leading innovator in solutions for precise, highly accurate measurement under variable temperature and magnetic field conditions, today announced the acquisition of Janis Research's Laboratory Cryogenics business — a move that unites two of the world's leading providers of cryogenic and material characterization solutions for low-temperature research.

The acquisition of the Woburn, MA, based business enables Lake Shore to now offer Janis Research liquid nitrogen (LN2), liquid helium (LHe), and closed-cycle refrigerator (cryogen-free) cryostats, LHe and cryogen-free superconducting magnet systems, cryogenic and cryogen-free probe stations, and various lab cooling systems.

This acquisition by Lake Shore does not include the Janis dilution refrigerator or He-3 ultra-low temperature (ULT) system product lines. These will be available from JanisULT, a separate, privately owned company.

"Janis is an ideal fit for Lake Shore," said Michael Swartz, Lake Shore Cryotronics President and CEO. "They're highly knowledgeable about the needs of scientists and others working in low-temperature physics and early-stage materials research, and together, we can offer a more complete portfolio of product solutions. We are impressed with the design to customer requirement capabilities of Janis Research."

Founded in 1961, Janis Research began as a manufacturer of LHe transfer lines and soon expanded its product offering to include cryogenic research equipment, ranging from simple LHe storage Dewars to sophisticated superconducting magnet and low-temperature systems.

Scott Azer, Janis Research's VP of Business Development, said, "The Janis team is thrilled to become part of a world-class organization like Lake Shore. We see many synergistic product opportunities ahead, combining Lake Shore's expertise in instrumentation, applications, and system engineering with Janis' strength in cryogenic system design and fabrication. We look forward to serving the scientific community even more effectively than before, as members of the Lake Shore family."

Janis Research will maintain product development, engineering, manufacturing, and product shipping operations in Woburn, MA.
