ESA acquires assets of Cypress Systems

Chelmsford, MA – January 5, 2004 – Analytical instrument maker ESA says it has purchased most of the assets of Cypress Systems. Founded in 1987 by Dr Theodore Kuwana, Cypress Systems provides potentiostats and electrodes for electrochemical research, life science research and teaching applications.

“We look forward to the opportunities this acquisition opens up for us,” says Walter DiGiusto, ESA president & CEO. “Cypress Systems’ products and expertise in electrochemistry will augment our similar expertise and already significant presence in the academic environment.”

ESA says that while its own strengths lie in HPLC-based applications of electrochemistry in the academic, medical and life science research communities, Cypress Systems has a strong position in core teaching and classroom experiments in electrochemistry.
