Oxford Instruments Buys Platinum Medical Imaging
OXON, England, Nov. 11, 2011 — Oxford Instruments plc has acquired Platinum Medical Imaging LLC of Deerfield Beach, Fla., and Vacaville, Calif.
Oxford Instruments said it was attracted to Platinum Medical because of growth in the third-party service market and the recent US health care reforms, which encourage medical imaging facilities to move to more cost-effective provider services.
Combining Platinum with OiService, Oxford Instruments’ MRI service business in North America, strengthens the group’s broader service offerings and opportunity for further global service development, the company said.
Platinum Medical provides equipment selection, site planning, installation and hands-on training for magnetic resonance and computed tomography imaging instruments.
Oxford Instruments designs, supplies and supports tools and systems with a focus on industrial and research applications. Its products combine core technologies in nuclear magnetic resonance, x-ray, electron- and optical-based metrology, and in temperature, high-magnetic-field and ultrahigh-vacuum environments.
