Lake Shore Cryotronics acquires cryogenics business of Janis Research Laboratory

Lake Shore Cryotronics, an Ohio-based measurement and control solutions company, has announced the acquisition of Massachusetts-based Janis Research´s Laboratory Cryogenics business, to combine two providers of cryogenic and material characterization solutions for low-temperature research, the company said.

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

The acquisition of the Janis Research business enables Lake Shore to offer Janis Research liquid nitrogen, liquid helium, and closed-cycle refrigerator (cryogen-free) cryostats, LHe and cryogen-free superconducting magnet systems, cryogenic and cryogen-free probe stations, and various lab cooling systems.

This acquisition by Lake Shore does not include the Janis dilution refrigerator or He-3 ultra-low temperature system product lines. These will be available from JanisULT, a separate, privately owned company.

Lake Shore Cryotronics, Inc. offers measurement and control solutions for low temperature and magnetic field conditions. High-performance product solutions from Lake Shore include cryogenic temperature sensors and instrumentation, magnetic test and measurement systems, cryogenic probe stations, and materials characterizations systems and instruments for exploring the electronic and magnetic properties of next-generation materials. Lake Shore serves an international base of research customers at leading university, government, aerospace, and commercial research institutions, and is supported by a global network of sales and service facilities.
