Canfield Scientific announced the acquisition of German company VISIOMED AG – the leading designer and manufacturer of dermoscopy systems.
The resulting business has decades of experience in aesthetic documentation, 3D imaging, clinical photography and reflected light microscopy leading to more choices and services for customers.
The acquisition brings a talented management team that will assume leadership roles in the expanded Canfield business. Canfield Scientific GmbH will become a center of excellence for high magnification imaging research and development, as well as a customer support and logistics center for Canfield in Europe. The new operation, located in Bielefeld, Germany complements Canfield’s existing clinical services organization in Utrecht Netherlands. Opened over 10 years ago by Peter Kollias, the Utrecht office will continue to support clinical studies in Europe, Middle East and Africa.
The merged product line, including the full range of VISIOMED dermatoscopes, will be available directly from Canfield Scientific, Inc. in the US and Canfield Scientific GmbH in Germany. For purchases in other countries, the Canfield and VISIOMED global distribution partner networks will be combined to reflect the integrated product lines.
