Ambios Technology, Inc. acquires Quesant Instrument Corp.

Santa Cruz, CA | Posted on February 08, 2006

Ambios Technology, Inc. announced today that it has acquired the assets of Quesant Instrument Corporation. Ambios Technology, a manufacturer of high resolution stylus and optical surface profiling systems for the academic and industrial research markets, expands its product offering with the addition of Quesants' scanning probe microscopes.

Scanning probe microscopes provide atomic scale resolution of surfaces over fields of view from nanometers to 100 microns. The combination of scanning probe techniques from Quesant and the existing products from Ambios allows the combined company to provide one of the most diverse set of nanoscale surface analysis and visualization products available from a single supplier.

Patrick O'Hara, President and CEO of Ambios commented, "With more than 400 customers worldwide and a history of pioneering and innovative technology development, Quesant brings to our product offering a set of highly robust scanning probe microscopes that extends our vision for surface measurement and analysis well into the nanoscopic regime. We are absolutely delighted to welcome our colleagues from Quesant into the larger Ambios family and look forward to ever greater innovation from our combined efforts."

As part of the acquisition, multiple patents related to some of the most fundamental operating principles of scanning probe microscopy, including Quesants' patented isotopic focal system are assigned to Ambios, as well as, inventory, fixed assets, product designs, and other non-tangible assets. Ambios is totally committed to providing continued product service and support to customers of existing Quesant products.

Commenting on the acquisition, Dr. Robert Harp, President of Quesant said, "I am very proud of the contributions that Quesant has made to the state-of-the-art of scanning probe microscopy as evidenced by our multiple patents and diverse product offering. Ambios provides a way for us to access broader markets in a more efficient manner. The combined company possesses the promise of a great scientific instrument company, and we look forward to working together in the fulfillment of that promise."
