Oneida Research Services Acquires IGA Division From Atlantic Analytical Laboratory
WHITESBORO, New York: Oneida Research Services, Inc. (ORS) announces the acquisition of the Internal Gas Analysis (IGA) division of Atlantic Analytical Laboratory (AAL). IGA is a critical test for qualifying electronic components for military, space, telecom and medical applications. The analytical technique is a quantitative measurement of sealed gases to ensure that high-reliability electronic components do not contain moisture or other gases that may cause premature product failure.
“The acquisition of Atlantic’s IGA division supports ORS’s global vision to expand its hermetic package gas analysis business and complements its proprietary Internal Vapor Analysis (IVA ® ) technology,” explains Daniel Rossiter, Sr. Vice President of Oneida Research Services, Inc. “We now offer 45 unique electronic testing services, including various types of package gas, hermeticity, materials, component, environmental and mechanical analysis.”
“Atlantic Analytical Laboratory and Oneida hold similar technology views in regard to IGA analysis,” points out Bruce Gollob, CEO and Managing Partner of AAL. “ORS and AAL have been friendly competitors in the IGA market for decades. Now both companies can focus on their core businesses. The acquisition will be good for both parties and the industry as a whole.”
Atlantic Analytical Laboratory will continue to provide primary testing services, which includes bulk gas analysis, specialty gas analysis, and gas purity and impurity testing for many different industries. For pharmaceutical customers AAL performs USP, NF and EP monograph gas analysis, along with other cGMP and cGLP compliant testing.
