Cantel Medical Corp., the Little Falls-based infection control company, said Wednesday it bought a western New York maker of products used to monitor sterilization processes as the company extends its acquisition push.

Cantel purchased Sterilator Co. of Cuba, N.Y., through its Crosstex subsidiary. Sterilator serves both the medical and industrial markets, and has been a supplier of products to Cantel's dental and hospital health-care disposable business.

Cantel has made a number of purchases in recent years, and said it will continue to look for acquisitions worldwide. The most recent deal, announced in November, was for Jet Prep Ltd., an Israeli company that makes a device to improve visual quality during colonoscopies. Other recent purchases include Siemens' dialysis water-purification business and a sterilization company called SPSmedical of Rochester, N.Y.

Cantel recently reported record revenue and net income for its fiscal first quarter, which ended Oct. 31. The company said it hopes to expand overseas, especially in China, Germany, the United Kingdom and Australia.

Cantel's products include medical device reprocessing systems for endoscopy and renal dialysis, advanced water purification equipment, sterilants, disinfectants and cleaners, disposable infection control products primarily for dental and gastrointestinal endoscopy markets, dialysate concentrates, filtration and separation products, and specialty packaging for infectious and biological specimens.
