Verder Scientific, a division of Verder Group headquartered in Haan, Germany, has acquired Porotec GmbH, located near Frankfurt am Main, Germany, in order to further expand its particle characterisation business.

Porotec develops and sells particle and porosity measurement instruments and operates as a dealer for Microtrac MRB, which Verder Scientific acquired in 2019, who also specialises in particle characterisation.

Verder Scientific explains that with the acquisition of Porotec, Microtrac MRB enhances its expertise and market position in gas adsorption, porosimetry and density measurement, and strengthens its German team in the areas application, sales and service. Porotec contributes relevant technical experience and in-depth knowledge of the market.

Microtrac MRB was established in 2020 by uniting the companies Microtrac Inc., MicrotracBEL Corp. and Retsch Technology GmbH and is said to provide the world’s widest product offering for particle characterisation.
