SANFORD, Maine, Jan.3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Maine Manufacturing, LLC
announced today that it has acquired from GE Healthcare a line of laboratory
products to add to its growing life science portfolio. The product lines
include the market-leading microbiological monitors in both 47mm and 56mm
sizes, and the associated broad range of ready-to-use liquid growth media. In
addition, Maine Manufacturing can now offer direct to customers and
distributors the ZapCap brand of bottle top filtration units and the broad
range of Centrex centrifugal filters. The products acquired were previously
developed by Schleicher & Schuell and have been marketed under the Whatman®
brand since 2006.

"The addition of these products fits very nicely with our recently announced
acquisition of the filter and membrane business of GE Osmonics," stated Bill
Emhiser, President of Maine Manufacturing. "These products from GE Healthcare
are well recognized brands with a wide range of applications, and allow us to
provide customers a broad offering to meet their various needs. As we are
doing with the GE Osmonics laboratory products, the team at Maine
Manufacturing plans to expand both customer and applications support. We look
forward to working with these new customers and distribution partners to
continue to grow our overall business, by providing the best possible
service," continued Emhiser.
