Expanding scientific CMOS offerings, Excelitas Technologies to acquire PCO

June 28, 2021
Excelitas will expand its photonics portfolio with PCO’s scientific CMOS camera technologies for high-performance imaging in scientific research and industrial quality control and metrology.

Photonic solutions provider Excelitas Technologies (Waltham, MA) has signed a definitive agreement to acquire PCO AG (Kelheim, Germany), a designer, developer, and manufacturer of high-end scientific CMOS (sCMOS) cameras for both biomedical and high-speed industrial imaging applications.

The combination of PCO’s sCMOS camera technology and Excelitas’ expanding portfolio of sensing, illumination, and optical products will enable Excelitas to provide deeper end-to-end customer solutions across the life science and industrial markets, explains Michael Ersoni, Excelitas Executive Vice President, Commercial SBU.

The transaction is expected to be finalized in summer 2021. Terms of the transaction are not being disclosed and are pending customary regulatory clearances and approvals.
