Distek, Inc., a leading manufacturer of laboratory testing instruments for the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry, as well as an experienced provider of validation and qualification services, has been awarded U.S. Patent 9,333,469 for their multi-motion assembly design.

Distek’s patented, multi-motion assembly design, also known as D-Drive, allows for one assembly mechanism to provide both linear and rotational motion.
