                      Mesa Laboratories Inc was incorporated under the laws of the State of Colorado on March 26, 1982. It is organized into two divisions across four physical locations. The Instruments Division designs, manufactures and markets quality c...moreontrol instruments and disposable products utilized in connection with the healthcare, pharmaceutical, food and beverage, medical device, industrial hygiene, semiconductor and petrochemical industries. The Biological Indicators Division manufactures and markets biological indicators and distributes chemical indicators used to assess the effectiveness of sterilization processes, including steam, gas, hydrogen peroxide and radiation, in the hospital, dental, medical device and pharmaceutical industries. Its Lakewood, Colorado and Butler, New Jersey facilities manufacture i...morets Instruments Division products, which include the DataTrace®, Medical, Bios, Torqo®, and Nusonics® brands. Its Omaha, Nebraska and Bozeman, Montana locations manufacture its Biological Indicators Division products the Mesa and Apex brands. The Companys revenues come from two main sources product sales, and parts and services. Its Instruments Division products include: DataTrace data loggers, which are used in critical manufacturing and quality control processes in the food, pharmaceutical and medical device industries; Medical meters and calibration solutions, which are used for quality control in dialysis clinics and dialysis machine manufacturing operations; Gas flow calibration equipment, which is used for quality control, occupational health and safety, and environmental air monitoring in metrology labs, industrial hygiene and environmental air sampling; Torqo torque testing systems, which are used to measure bottle cap tightness in the beverage and pharmaceutical industries; and Nusonics concentration analyzers, pipeline interface detectors and flow meter products used in the chemical, food, pharmaceutical and plastics industries. Biological indicators consist of resistant spores of certain microorganisms that are applied on a convenient substrate, such as a small piece of filter paper. The spores are well characterized in terms of numbers and resistance to sterilization. In use, the biological indicator is exposed to a sterilization process and then tested to determine the presence of surviving organisms. Its biological indicators include spore strips, which require post-processing transfer to a growth media, self-contained products, which have the growth media already pre-packaged in crushable ampoules, and culture media. Chemical indicators are similar to biological indicators, except that a chemical change (generally determined by color) is used to assess the exposure to sterilization conditions. Biological indicators and chemical indicators are often used together to monitor processes. Biological indicators are used to validate equipment and monitor the effectiveness of a process in any industrial or healthcare setting which uses sterilization. Key markets include healthcare, such as dental offices and hospitals, and industrial, such as medical device and pharmaceutical manufacturers. Companies with which its Instruments Division products compete include the Myron L Company, IBP Medical GmbH, GE Kaye, Ellab, TMI Orion, SureTorque, Mecmesin and Steinfurth. Its Biological Indicators Division products compete with 3M, Terragene, NAMSA and Steris, among others. Several products in both the Instruments and Biological Indicators Divisions are medical devices subject to the provisions of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, as amended by the Medical Device Amendments of 1976.lessless
