Nanalysis Scientific Corp. ("the Company"), is pleased to announce that it has acquired 100 percent of One Moon Scientific ("OMS"), a New York based magnetic resonance software company. This acquisition opens up new industry verticals for hardware sales and allows for software licensing and SAAS revenue.
One Moon Scientific specializes in a suite of software tools to streamline and automate Magnetic Resonance ("MR") data analysis and management. Originally developed at a leading pharmaceutical company, this advanced software platform was designed from the ground up to be a powerful platform to provide routine, high-performance data processing and fill niches in MR data analysis, including machine learning and database construction/search algorithms. The founder and CEO, Bruce Johnson, will remain as a consultant and will also continue his university academic research.
Sean Krakiwsky, founder and CEO of Nanalysis said "This acquisition will allow us to evolve our revenue model to include software licensing and software as a service (SaaS). As demand continues to increase for our hardware products, management felt it was the right time to add a complete software package to our product mix. This will position us to further penetrate certain vertical markets, such as food authentication and biological diagnostic technologies."
"Joining forces with an experienced MR software leader, such as Bruce Johnson, is a critical part of our strategy to build a fully vertically integrated NMR/MRI company focused on providing industrial solutions with necessary software layers to provide, accurate, and reliable data.
"This acquisition will allow us to add important features to our current installed base and will also strengthen our position with key partners. This acquisition allows us to offer comprehensive data processing, including both AI and deep learning algorithms, on top of our world-class hardware products."
Bruce Johnson, founder and CEO of One Moon Scientific, Inc. said "This is a fantastic opportunity to ensure the long-term future of software I've been developing for over 25 years. The acquisition of One Moon Scientific, Inc. by Nanalysis will bring new developments to the software beyond our academic work in biomolecular MR and will grow the user base of these software tools that are already used by a global community."
