IDEX Health & Science Announces New Optics Center of Excellence in Rochester, NY

Rohnert Park, CA, August 14, 2017 — IDEX Health & Science, LLC  today announced plans to occupy a new, state-of-the-art facility in Rochester, New York that will enable scalable future growth of its optical components, sub-systems, and filters business.

In 2014, IDEX Health & Science believed that bringing together its Life Science Optics, Scientific Fluidics and Optical Technologies businesses would yield a highly differentiated platform that could better serve the life science, semiconductor, and defense markets. This vision was realized in 2016 as the two organizations were formally combined under one leadership team. Since creating this new optofluidic enterprise, IDEX Health & Science has focused on the growth of integrated optofluidic sub-systems,  components, and highly engineered solutions across its target markets. This focus has driven accelerated growth across its business and has revealed the need for a new facility that will allow IDEX Health & Science to execute on its long term growth plans. 

“The goal of this new facility is to create an Optics Center of Excellence that allows us to continue to advance our leadership position in life science optics and optical assemblies, as well as supporting the  semiconductor and defense markets we serve” said Gus Salem, Group President of IDEX Health & Science. The Optics Center of Excellence will consist of a brand new, 100,000 square-foot leased manufacturing, research, and development facility that will bring together IDEX Health & Science’s Semrock and Melles Griot Rochester businesses that specialize in optical filters, lenses, shutters, and optical assemblies, as well as the manufacturing operations of its Melles Griot Carlsbad, CA business that specializes in laser light sources and integrated optical systems. “Additionally, we will be establishing a commercial, research, and development center for innovation in Carlsbad, CA, that will enable continued growth in illumination technology and optomechanical assemblies,” continued Salem.

IDEX Health & Science Releases MarvelXACT™ UHPLC Connection Systems Offering Chromatographers Repeatable, Reproducible Results

Oak Harbor, WA, July 13, 2017 — IDEX Health & Science, LLC announces the release of MarvelXACT UHPLC Connection Systems, the first torque limiting UHPLC connection in the market. “Chromatographers need and want repeatable, reproducible results. A key aspect of ensuring such reproducibility is avoiding guess-work when tightening fittings” said Eric Beemer, Lead Design Engineer for MarvelXACT. IDEX Health and Science has done numerous studies in the field to understand the pain points of chromatography users and find solutions to address these pain points.

MarvelXACT delivers two key benefits. First, it ensures that optimum torque is reached every time the fitting is installed. It achieves this by a patented torque limiting mechanism preventing under tightening or over tightening with a “click” feedback. This addresses user concerns about leaks, tubing tip damage and port wear. Second, it uses an innovative face sealing technology to minimize additional internal volume. MarvelXACT incorporates a proven, patent pending sealing technology also used in MarvelX Connections which was launched two years ago. This also enables a simple finger-tight operation and provides longer fitting life.
