Clarendon Lawyers is delighted to have advised Applied Spectra, Inc. on its purchase of the rights to manufacture and sell a range of innovative excimer laser ablation and helium thermochronology instruments (comprising RESOlution, Alphachron and RESOchron instruments) from Australian Scientific Instruments (ASI).

Applied Spectra, which is headquartered in California, USA, is a global leader in the development, manufacturing and commercialisation of laser ablation based analytical instruments. The acquisition of the rights to manufacture and sell certain instruments from ASI, an Australian based manufacturer and distributor of laser ablation products, will further expand Applied Spectra’s impressive product portfolio.

The Clarendons team was led by Director, Alex Bean, who was assisted by Lawyer, Ayesha Singh.

Alex congratulated the Applied Spectra team on the acquisition, stating that “It was great to be given the opportunity to assist Applied Spectra with an acquisition that is a natural extension of Applied Spectra’s current business and will enable it to further expand its product offering to customers. Applied Spectra has earned a reputation for being a market leader in the development, manufacturing and commercialisation of laser ablation based analytical instruments, and this acquisition will further enhance Applied Spectra’s presence in this industry.”
