Pall Acquires Euroflow; Second Chromatography Purchase in Two Months

NEW YORK, Jan. 25 (GenomeWeb News) - Pall said today that it has acquired Euroflow, a Stroud, UK-based manufacturer of chromatography columns for the biotechnology industry.

 

Pall has held exclusive global marketing and distribution rights to Euroflow's chromatography columns and associated technologies since 2002.

 

A Pall spokeswoman declined to reveal the financial terms of the acquisition, noting that Euroflow's small size makes the purchase price "immaterial."

 

Pall said that Euroflow's sales are currently about $5 million a year.

 

The acquisition follows upon Pall's purchase of the BioSepra Process Division from Ciphergen Biosystems for $32 million, which closed last month.
