In-Situ Inc. announced on March 18, 2019 that it has acquired ChemScan Inc., formerly known as ASA Analytics.
In-Situ said the acquisition will expand its ability to provide process applications for municipal and industrial wastewater, drinking water, and other industrial water process markets.

“We’ve made significant investments in new product development and strategic partnerships to improve our capabilities in the process market,” said In-Situ CEO John Pawlikowski in a press release. “With the addition of ChemScan, we have an extremely robust offering to better serve customers in the municipal water, wastewater and industrial markets.”
