Systec

IDEX Corporation acquired Systec in 2004, adding debubbling and degassing to our growing list of fluidic capabilities. Since 1971, OEMs looked to Systec for high-purity degassing efficiency in the chemical instrumentation, in vitro diagnostic and biotechnology markets. Now, with the acquisition of Systec products and manufacturing capabilities, IDEX Health & Science is able to offer the same chemically inert degassing and debubbling systems for rigorously precise applications.

ERC

IDEX Health & Science now brings superior gas and detection technology to our customers because of our acquisition of ERC’s equipment degassing solutions. ERC was founded in 1988 and acquired by IDEX Health & Science in 2012. ERC was a pioneer in the design and manufacture of gas liquid separations and detection products. Their leading products included High-Flow Degassing Systems, components that improved the performance of high-throughput diagnostic instruments, and Refractive Index Detectors (RIDs) that utilize optical measurement, temperature control and signal/data processing for HPLC applications like GPC. Because of ERC, our degassing solutions are considered 'standard' for many of the world's leading instrument producers.
