Larger footprint and increased capabilities enable Kinetic River to offer greater range of services
Mountain View, Calif., USA, June 23, 2015 – Kinetic River Corp., a leader in flow cytometry instrumentation design and product development, completed its acquisition of the assets of Enlumen Technology Inc., a Silicon-Valley optics and photonics engineering firm specializing in custom optical systems and laser development. Kinetic River also assumed the lease of Enlumen’s facility.
Kinetic River and Enlumen Technology have been collaborating since 2014, when Kinetic River moved its operations to Enlumen’s laboratory space in Mountain View, Calif. Enlumen’s long experience in laser development and Kinetic River’s focus on biophotonic system design created excellent business synergies, and the co-location arrangement resulted in additional efficiencies, from shared resources to joint projects.
With the asset acquisition and laboratory expansion, Kinetic River augments both its physical footprint and the range and scope of customer and R&D projects it can execute. Laminar flow hoods, optical prototyping tables, sample preparation areas, and a full suite of test, measurement, and characterization tools give Kinetic River the ability to take on and deliver more projects, of greater complexity, simultaneously.
