DANBURY, CT., March 29. 2006 - Smiths Detection, the world's leading provider of trace detection and X-ray security screening equipment, today announced it is focusing efforts to better serve the scientific and laboratory sectors through Smiths Detection Scientific. The Danbury, Conn., based business unit will develop easy-to-use, application-focused instruments to serve international customers in commercial markets ranging from pharmaceuticals to forensics.
“Smiths Detection Scientific is strategically positioned to capture opportunities in commercial markets by developing easy-to-use, application focused instruments that enhance business performance,” said Cherif Rizkalla, President of Smiths Detection, Americas.
The Scientific division is focused on simplifying science by developing customized solutions for applications such as cleaning validation, material research and identification, manufacturing, industrial hygiene and quality control. Smiths Detection Scientific designs easy-to-use instruments and software that broaden the range of end-user capability—from the highly technical to the highly trained in numerous markets.
“The Scientific unit has tremendous potential for growth as we are entering new markets with some of the best technology available,” said Dave Johnson, Vice President of Smiths Detection Scientific. “The products we develop for Homeland Security and the Military have to be simple to use, rugged and provide timely answers rather than data.
