Spectro Scientific recently announced the acquisition of On-Site Analysis (OSA) Inc. Headquartered in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, OSA specializes in the development and manufacture of advanced fluid analysis hardware and software technologies, primarily for on-premise coolant, oil and lubrication testing for municipal and commercial fleet vehicles. The company's analytical equipment operates in 50 countries, and its solutions include the LubeTrak data mining, trending and storage service based in Sandy, Utah.

The OSA team consists of approximately 40 people, with most located at its central manufacturing operation in Marlborough, Massachusetts.

"This acquisition merges the technical resources and management structures of Spectro Scientific and OSA and will enable our customers to enjoy continually higher levels of analytical speed, convenience and accuracy," said Spectro Scientific president and CEO Brian Mitchell. "The OSA business complements Spectro's ongoing efforts to strengthen its global leadership position in the industrial fluids analysis markets. Since its inception, OSA has pursued a vision of moving the oil and lubrication testing process from large, centralized laboratories to the actual users of the analytical information. That strategy aligns perfectly with Spectro Scientific's promise of enabling our customers to always make confident, knowledge-based decisions immediately and without the need of an expert operator. We are excited about adding the On-Site team, technology and products to the Spectro family."  

Spectro Scientific is a leading developer and manufacturer of analytical tools and software for industrial fluids analysis. Industry clients include petrochemical, mining, power generation and water treatment companies as well as commercial testing laboratories.
