As you may know, Mesa Laboratories, INC purchased Raven Biological Laboratories in May of 2006. Mesa is now working toward transitioning all Biological and Chemical Indicators sold from these two manufacturing facilities toward a single Mesa labeled brand. Over the next several months you will see more and more products transitioned to a Mesa branded product (e.g. Mesa ProSpore Ampoule by Mesa).
As we exhaust current packaging we will be replacing Raven labels with Mesa labels. Where we manufacture the products has not changed. How we manufacture the products has not changed. We have many clients in the pharmaceutical industry that are sensitive to changes in how or where a product is manufactured. This change only applies to the corporate logo on the product. Our pharmaceutical partners do not need to re-qualify the facility they buy from as there have been no changes in how or where the products are manufactured.
We expect to maintain product brand names in order to help clients identify the facility where the product was manufactured. Clients who have been buying ProTest can be assured the product is still made in Omaha at the former Raven Labs facility.
Please be sure to inform your receiving and QA departments that these changes are imminent and are in brand only, as described above. If you need additional information from us to further explain this change please let us know.
