Teledyne Instruments, a subsidiary of US company Teledyne Technologies, has entered into an agreement to acquire Scientific Systems. Headquartered in State College, Pennsylvania, SSI manufactures precision components and specialized subassemblies used primarily in analytical and diagnostic instrumentation, including high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) systems and specific medical devices.

Founded by Andy Charney in 1967, Scientific Systems is a world leader in the design and manufacture of high pressure positive-displacement piston pumps for a wide variety of analytical, clinical, sample prep and fluid-metering applications. SSI pumps can deliver very precise flow rates as low as 1μL per minute and achieve pressures up to 25,000 psi. The company’s customers include leading OEM instrumentation suppliers in the fields of HPLC, flash chromatography, clinical diagnostics, protein analysis and purification, and other industries requiring precise fluid flow at high pressures.

“I have personally followed SSI for a number of years, and Teledyne has recently become one of SSI’s larger customers. I have developed great respect for Andy Charney, the company, and the current management and employees of SSI,” said Robert Mehrabian, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Teledyne. “SSI will provide Teledyne greater access to life sciences customers and markets, while Teledyne offers SSI additional technologies and new opportunities in the industrial space. We are proud to continue SSI’s 50-year legacy of innovative, highly-engineered products and outstanding customer service.”
