SANFORD — Maine Manufacturing LLC, a specialty manufacturing company, said it has acquired a line of laboratory products from General Electric's healthcare unit in an effort to expand its life sciences business.

Maine Manufacturing said the products, which are used to test for contamination in the food and beverage industry, will allow it to gain new customers and distribution partners.

Maine Manufacturing had previously made the products solely for GE Healthcare, but now it can expand the products to more customers.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The acquisition follows the recent purchase of the filter and membrane business of GE Osmonics.

Sanford-based Maine Manufacturing works with partner companies to develop and make products that are used for biological analysis and molecular reactions.
