Irish-Based BioTector Analytical Systems Ltd. Announces Distribution Partnership With Hach Company

March 16, 2010

WASHINGTON and CORK, Ireland, March 16 /PRNewswire/ — BioTector Analytical Systems, Ltd., a manufacturer of an innovative range of total organic carbon (TOC), total nitrogen (TN) and total phosphorous (TP) on-line liquid analyzers for environmental monitoring, process control and waste minimization, today announced a distribution agreement with Loveland, Colorado-based Hach Company. Hach, a leading manufacturer and distributor of analytical instruments, test kits and reagents used to test the quality of water and other liquids, will serve as the exclusive distributor of the BioTector range of on-line liquid analyzers in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Brazil and Europe. The product will be sold in these markets under the name: Hach BioTector TOC analyzer.

The distribution agreement was announced during a Trade and Investment Mission to the U.S. led by Ireland’s Prime Minister, Brian Cowen. The Mission is organized by Enterprise Ireland, the Irish state agency responsible for the development and promotion of the indigenous Irish business sector.

BioTector’s on-line liquid analyzers are used in a variety of industrial applications, including dairy processing, chemical processing, oil refineries, municipal treatment plants, pharmaceutical manufacturing, airport surface water analysis, breweries, and pulp and paper manufacturing. The company’s patented oxidation technology–a two-stage advanced oxidation method–overcomes the limitations of traditional on-line analyzers and offers customers an accurate, reliable and low maintenance solution to their on-line analysis needs.

“We’re very pleased to enter into this partnership with Hach Company,” said Martin Horan, BioTector’s Managing Director. “This distribution agreement with a leading U.S. company like Hach–a significant endorsement of our technology– offers Hach customers a robust on-line liquid analysis technology that overcomes the limitations of most competing systems, which are better suited for lab rather than industrial environments. Hach’s systems, like ours, are designed specifically for quality, accuracy and simplicity, and it is this shared ethos in high standards and customer satisfaction that we believe will drive the success of this partnership.”

“We’re very pleased to be able to offer the BioTector TOC analyzer to Hach customers,” said Terry Stange, Hach Business Unit Director. “These products offer 99.7 percent uptime, +/- 3 percent accuracy, are entirely self-cleaning, and can analyze samples up to a thousand times larger than those of competing products. This will provide our customers with the benefits of reliability, measurement confidence, low maintenance and high capacity.”
