Boulder, CO (PRWEB) September 30, 2013

Particle Measuring Systems is pleased to announce the purchase of Naneum Ltd. This latest acquisition expands their broad suite of products and strengthens their experience related to key emerging technologies, supporting the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS).

Addition of Naneum's technologies to their extensive experience in micro-contamination monitoring promises major advancements in particle detection. One of the chief challenges facing semiconductor companies today is sub-100 nanometer particle detection in process environments. In the past year, Naneum was recognized by the Institute of Physics (London, UK) for their advancements in nanoparticle detection. This technology enables instruments with industry leading sensitivity and production-compatible maintenance intervals, while eliminating the use of undesirable chemicals. In combination, this technology and Particle Measuring Systems industry expertise provide a production-worthy monitoring solution with low cost of ownership.

Commenting on the acquisition, John Mitchell, president of Particle Measuring Systems, said "Naneum allows us to further expand our comprehensive product offering to the microelectronics industry. The expertise of the Naneum organization enhances our ability to continue to bring innovative solutions to the global market."
