A Brief Explanation and FAQs
In June 2019, the life science business MilliporeSigma acquired the laboratory informatics company BSSN Software. The two companies have been working together since 2014, and MilliporeSigma’s acquisition of BSSN Software is a clear signal of our embrace of open and interoperable scientific data standards, as well as our commitment to invest deeply in developing innovative and best-in-class digital solutions for our customers.
For the past year and a half, we have been working tirelessly to merge our teams, talent, and technologies to ensure that we continue to deliver reliable, uninterrupted service to our valued BSSN customers and OEM partners around the globe. The fruits of this collaboration have also produced the first digital product jointly produced by MilliporeSigma and BSSN Software – SciDiver, a secure and collaborative cloud solution for organizing, harmonizing, and visualizing all your analytical and biological data.
As we introduce SciDiver to market, you may begin to notice changes to BSSN Software’s brand identity that will continue to evolve throughout 2021. We are rebranding BSSN Software to ensure that our product portfolio and market presence are visibly, boldly, and undeniably MilliporeSigma. MilliporeSigma is widely known as a vibrant science and technology company, and our new product brand structure and visual identity will set the tone for the future of our business – as an organization that is pioneering, imaginative, bold and unique, and which creates diverse and innovative experiences for our customers. Aside from these changes, nothing about the functionality, quality, or characteristics of our BSSN products will change.
MilliporeSigma’s acquisition of BSSN Software represents a huge opportunity for us to modernize, enhance, and scale up our core technology platforms in order to provide superior service to our customers, while also enabling us to reach a much wider audience thanks to MilliporeSigma’s global footprint. As this rebranding exercise gets underway, it’s important to note that we remain strongly committed to the AnIML and SiLA open data protocols, and that we adhere to strict privacy policies regarding the internal use and distribution of confidential information entrusted to us by our customers.
