The CARR Biosystems Story
CARR Separations was founded in 1993 by Robert “Bret” Carr and his father Bob Carr in Medfield, MA. Together, they introduced the Powerfuge Separation System, the first high-speed, solid bowl centrifuge with automatic solids
discharge. Through the 1990's, CARR Separation established itself as an industry innovator and a world-class supplier of liquid-solid separation to the Life Sciences and Specialty Chemical markets.
In 2000, CARR Separations was acquired by Kendro Laboratories Products LLC. The Powerfuge and Viafuge Separation Systems were combined with Centritech Separation Systems to form the Kendro Bioprocess division.
In 2004, Barry-Wehmiller (Pneumatic Scale Angelus) acquired CARR Centritech Separation Systems, relocating all functions to Clearwater, Florida. In 2009, the company introduced the UniFuge® Single-Use Separation System.
