Advanced Instruments Acquires Mart Microbiology B.V.
Date:11/19/2007

NORWOOD, Mass., Nov. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Advanced Instruments, Inc., of Norwood, Massachusetts, announced today that it has acquired 100% of the shares of Mart Microbiology B.V. of The Netherlands. The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Mart Microbiology manufactures and markets the Anoxomat(TM) line of instruments. These systems create custom environments for anaerobic bacteria cultivation, a process which requires oxygen-deprived atmospheres. Typical applications include the diagnosis of post-operative infection in hospitals and clinics, plus bacterial cultivation in food microbiology labs.

Anoxomat provides many advantages over traditional methods of cultivating anaerobes. The system can quickly create a precision anaerobic environment that enables reliable and rapid bacteria cultivation. It uses less lab space than traditional "glove box" cabinets and can provide typical returns on investment in less than one year.

Advanced Instruments has been the U.S. distributor of Anoxomat products for more than 6 years and has placed many systems at leading American medical centers. In addition, Mart products are sold in other global regions through an established factory-trained dealer network.

"Mart Microbiology is a perfect fit for our company," said John Coughlin, President and CEO, Advanced Instruments. "It is the clear market leader in this developing technology and compliments our company's market presence globally. The experience gained as Anoxomat's U.S. distributor gives us a high degree of confidence in making this strategic move," he said.

Advanced Instruments currently operates a facility in The Netherlands and the operations of Mart Microbiology will be integrated into that facility in early 2008.
