Background / History
Bio-Rad Cell Science Division was sold to Carl Zeiss the production of
the popular Bio-Rad range of confocal microscopes was discontinued.
Consequently many of the support staff around the world became
redundant. Among those was Allan Anderson who was, for nearly 13 years,
the Asia Pacific confocal Technical Support Manager.
Allan could see
an immediate need for the service of the existing Bio-Rad customers and
so in 2004 he formed Clear State Solutions Pty Ltd. From meagre
beginnings, Clear State Solutions quickly grew in scope, facilities and
stature to the point where it became widely acknowledged as one of the
leading service and support organsations in the Asian region.
reasons for this were simple. Clear State Solutions had, from its
start, enjoyed superior laboratory facilities where laser and confocal
service could be performed to a quality standard that was unrivalled in
the region. Coupled to this was Allan Anderson's extensive knowledge
and experience in confocal and laser service, his extremely successful
track record in service and design and his ability to successfully
complete tasks that most other service organisations would not even
all things must end. This was true of the laser and confocal service
market in the Asia/Pacific region so a new path was needed. Around 2008
Clear state Solutions started the design and manufacture of microscope
incubation chambers with a view to supporting the growing Live Cell
study disciplines. The traditional methods proved inadequate and in
cases quite wrong so Clear State Solutions developed a new controller
based on Fuzzy logic
and new methods of maintaining heat and gas concentrations around the
cells under study. Since then Clear State Solutions has grown to be the
market leader in the Australian and New Zealand region for microscope
incubation chamber design with in excess of 80 installations in
universities, research laboratories and IVF clinics.
